Truchlo Strzygi – Pora Umierac (Godz ov War)

Truchlo Strzygi – Pora Umierac (Godz ov War)

“Black and punk metal from Poland” is the minimalist description of this one. If it’s a case of take it or leave it, I’ll take it. Time to die – well, that’s what the title means. It sounds intriguing. The start isn’t anything like the.. Read More
Thunderwar - Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

Thunderwar – Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

This 5 track EP is the third release by Polish quartet Thunderwar and its rapid no-nonsense songs get to the point with minimal fuss. Opening title track “Wolfpack” has Kamil “Madness” Mandes’s raspy vocals spat out over Paweł “Pavulon” Jaroszewicz’s fast drumming, while Witold Ustapiuk’s.. Read More
Hegemone - We Disappear (Debemur Morti)

Hegemone – We Disappear (Debemur Morti)

While the wider metal scene is much more inclusive than for example the hardcore or the punk scene when it comes to bands from outside the US or the UK, bands from Eastern and South-Eastern Europe are still not getting enough attention. That’s a shame,.. Read More
Kingdom – Putrescent Remains Of The Dead Ground (Godz Ov War Productions)

Kingdom – Putrescent Remains Of The Dead Ground (Godz Ov War Productions)

Apart from the band’s debut this Polish act love their long album titles even though their albums are relatively short as this fourth clocks in the sub 30 minute mark and begins with an eerie almost sinister riff on “Walls Of Askalon” that has an.. Read More
Misanthropic Rage – Igne Natura Renovatur Integra (Godz ov War)

Misanthropic Rage – Igne Natura Renovatur Integra (Godz ov War)

To say that I was impressed with Misanthropic Rage’s debut album “Gates No Longer Shut” (2016) is an understatement. Merging and transcending styles, while buttonholed as “avant-garde progressive black metal”, it was basically Polish metal with atmospheres and attitude. Like a child in a sweet.. Read More
Elixir Of Distress – Kontynent (Winterheart Music)

Elixir Of Distress – Kontynent (Winterheart Music)

You won’t find a whole lot about Elixir Of Distress on the Internet and all I have to go with is a hand written note that came with the promo disc. Basically although the album recording session started in 2013 due to various reasons it.. Read More
Voidhanger – Dark Days of the Soul (Agonia Records)

Voidhanger – Dark Days of the Soul (Agonia Records)

I don’t know why it is that Polish death metal vocalists have the raucous tone of people who have indulged in large quantities of vodka and spent their time in smoke-filled rooms, but Voidhanger’s Warcrimer is the archetype of the breed. That’s just the vocals... Read More
Twinge - Enslaved By Human Mind (S/R)

Twinge – Enslaved By Human Mind (S/R)

Back at the turn of the new millennium, give or take a year or so, Kerrang! was an actual relevant thing to me musically. It sometimes gave compilation CD’s and actually provided some decent features and helped widen my growing musical horizons and tastes. This.. Read More
Warfist / Excidium - Laws Of Perversion And Filth  (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist / Excidium – Laws Of Perversion And Filth (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was lucky enough to get hold of the album “Metal To The Bone” by Polish leather & stud enthusiasts Warfist last year and it couldn’t have had a more appropriate title so when the opportunity arose to write about this new 8 track split.. Read More
Anima Damnata – Nefarious Seed Grows To Bring Forth Supremacy Of The Beast (Godz Ov War)

Anima Damnata – Nefarious Seed Grows To Bring Forth Supremacy Of The Beast (Godz Ov War)

Nice album title…..trips of the tongue a treat doesn’t it? You might think I’m being sarcastic here but compared to their 2003 debut “Agonizing Journey Through The Burning Universe And Transcendental Ritual Of Transfiguration” it really does. This Polish bunch of Satan botherers have been.. Read More
In Silent - Martwy dopływ wisły (S/R)

In Silent – Martwy dopływ wisły (S/R)

Yep this is Polish, no problem with that, we get plenty of music from there and there is no shortage of extreme metal hailing from the country. The band’s Facebook page tells us that they are influenced by the likes of Vader, Hate Eternal, Nile,.. Read More
Stillborn – Mirrormaze / Die In Torment 666 (Godz Ov War Productions)

Stillborn – Mirrormaze / Die In Torment 666 (Godz Ov War Productions)

Of the seven acts I found called Stillborn this version is from Poland and is one of the most prolific in terms of quantities of releases as they’ve seen fit to re-release their first two demos released in 1999 and 2001 respectively titled ‘Mirrormaze’ and.. Read More
