Misanthropic Rage – Gates No Longer Shut (Godz ov War)

Misanthropic Rage – Gates No Longer Shut (Godz ov War)

And fire swept the earth. No, it’s not Enslaved but Poland’s Misanthropic Rage who cast all asunder with their avant-garde progressive metal. A dark, croaky voice echoes behind a full-out sound which bounces off walls, crunches buildings and creates expanses and big atmospheres. Frequent tempo.. Read More
Hate – Tremendum (Napalm)

Hate – Tremendum (Napalm)

Hate are one of the long standing members of the well-renowned Polish death metal factory, having been going since 1990. Looking at their line-up, the drummer seems to have played with everyone, which is typical of the Polish scene. “Tremendum” is Hate’s tenth album release,.. Read More
Azarath – In Extremis (Agonia Records)

Azarath – In Extremis (Agonia Records)

Polish extreme metallers Azarath have been around for nearly 20 years and during that time the band has released five full lengths but it is six years since “Blasphemers’ Maledictions” which had a clinical yet assailing set of songs that were firmly entrenched in the.. Read More
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
