Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

This form of pestilential darkness comes to us via Poland and a calibre of musicians who have been involved past and present, on and off stage with the likes of Old Woods Grave, Mgla, Clandestine Blaze and Mord A’Stigmata. Speaking of Stigmata there’s a cover.. Read More
Me And That Man - Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Me And That Man – Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Here’s a thing and a half. I mean the name of the group is only a little curious whereas the album title is a bit underwhelming and maybe the third or fourth one in my collection with that exact title. Then you notice that this.. Read More
Disperse – Foreword (Season of Mist)

Disperse – Foreword (Season of Mist)

I know people who sing the praises of Polish progressive metal band Disperse. My own experience of them, which amounts to listening to one of their two previous albums “Living Mirrors” (2013) and a live performance, has been one of slight disappointment, caused by the.. Read More
Cultes Des Ghoules – Coven, or Evil Ways Instead Of Love (Hells Headbangers)

Cultes Des Ghoules – Coven, or Evil Ways Instead Of Love (Hells Headbangers)

Slithering and oozing out of Poland circa 2004, the strange and sinister Cultes Des Ghoules impressed with their first two albums Häxan (2008) and Henbane (2013). The latter was described as “dramatic horror fuelled black metal from a band who really like long songs.” Well.. Read More
Mord A Stigmata – Hope (Pagan)

Mord A Stigmata – Hope (Pagan)

Mord A Stigmata are another of those bands from the seemingly endless Polish factory of black metal. Around since 2004, “Hope” is their fourth full album release. “Hope” is not an all-out assault. It is steady, creepy even with a progression, which erodes at the.. Read More
Bestial Raids – Master Satan’s Witchery (Nuclear War Now)

Bestial Raids – Master Satan’s Witchery (Nuclear War Now)

I notice that Bestial Raids have two ex-members of Cultes des Ghoules in their ranks and that particular band have a new album coming soon and it’s very likely to be landing on my reviews list. Why they left the band is not known but.. Read More
Mrome – Noetic Collision On The Roof Of Hell (S/R)

Mrome – Noetic Collision On The Roof Of Hell (S/R)

Apart from a Bandcamp page there is little in the way of Internet presence about this Polish group but a bit of digging shows that they were formerly known as Kingdom and existed between 1995 and 2002. They never got past the demo stage before.. Read More
Eternal Deformity – No Way Out (Temple Of Torturous)

Eternal Deformity – No Way Out (Temple Of Torturous)

Damn, it’s bad enough going through your mortal days with a boat-race like Joseph Merrick’s but you have to take it with you into the afterlife? Seriously though, if you took a look at this band’s name and thought as I did that this was.. Read More
Furia - Księżyc milczy luty (Pagan Records)

Furia – Księżyc milczy luty (Pagan Records)

I am only a recent convert to the cult of Furia having 1st heard the Polish band with last album Nocel on its re-release. It was an incredibly complex album and once it started it never let up with a huge burgeoning mass of precisely.. Read More
Vader – The Empire (Nuclear Blast)

Vader – The Empire (Nuclear Blast)

Coming a couple of months after the teasing ‘Iron Times’ EP, Vader have released their thirteenth LP, ‘The Empire’. Now if, like me, you’re a long-time fan of the Polish veterans then you’ll have a fair idea of what to expect here. Gnarly thrash metal.. Read More
Arkona - Lunaris (Debemur Morti)

Arkona – Lunaris (Debemur Morti)

Long-established Polish black metal band Arkona, not to be confused with the Russian band of the same name, are back with their sixth album and a few other bits. I expected no frills. The intro is short because there’s hatred and venom to be expressed... Read More
