Cultes Des Ghoules – Sinister (Hell’s Headbangers)

Cultes Des Ghoules – Sinister (Hell’s Headbangers)

Sinister by name and sinister by nature, watch out the ghoules are back in town. If you have a certain song going round in your head after reading that line, wipe it out now. This lot are in no way throwing down a normal metal.. Read More
Behemoth – I Loved You at Your Darkest (Nuclear Blast)

Behemoth – I Loved You at Your Darkest (Nuclear Blast)

No longer as prolific a studio band as they once were, the release of a new Behemoth album is considered a big deal given its scarcity over the past decade. The band are never been far from the public eye though; frontman Nergal inadvertently carved.. Read More
Riverside – Wasteland (Inside Out)

Riverside – Wasteland (Inside Out)

I hold Riverside in very high esteem. By far one of the better acts within the progressive umbrella, I’ve been an admirer of the band since I stumbled across their debut back in 2003. I saw them rise in ability and song-craft towards their fabulous.. Read More
Psychotropic Transcendental – Lun Yolina Un Yolina thu Dar-davogh (Deformeathing Production)

Psychotropic Transcendental – Lun Yolina Un Yolina thu Dar-davogh (Deformeathing Production)

On the face of it, this is just weird. Psychotropic Transcendental is a progressive band from Poland purveying “narcotic porn metal”. The band history seemingly saw them split up in 2008 after one album release and now re-appearing with another one 17 years after the.. Read More
Spaceslug - Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Spaceslug – Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Poland’s Spaceslug are a busy band. Their universe started to come together in 2015 but the big bang happened for them with debut LP “Lemanis” in 2016 and follow up, “Time Travel Dilemma” one year later. Punctuated by an EP release, “Eye The Tide” represents.. Read More
Down to the Heaven - [ level -1 ] (Heavison)

Down to the Heaven – [ level -1 ] (Heavison)

This is the Polish outfit’s début album after having been around for 4 years and with the current line-up for two. Hailing from Bielsko-Biała the 6 piece describe themselves as Djent/Metalcore/Electro, which is about as apt a description as you’re likely to get. Rusty’s vocals.. Read More
VELD - S.I.N. (Listenable Records)

VELD – S.I.N. (Listenable Records)

Spawned In Nothingness is the fourth album by this Belarussian trio, and it’s pretty straight forward, fast and extremely aggressive death metal, with a touch of atmospherics to keep it interesting. The intro “The Beginning of Madness” lulls you in with a rather gentle wash.. Read More
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
