Only Sons – Lions And Unicorns (S/R)

Only Sons are a five-piece band hailing from Poland with a love on 90’s alternative rock and metal. Still relatively new on the scene, they formed in 2017 and have one EP to their credit. “Lions And Unicorns” is their… Continue Reading →

Across The Shade – Hope (S/R)

Polish Melodic Death Metal quartet Across The Shade come at us with a simple named offering for their debut full-length release. “Hope” is an 8 track, sub-40 minute Melodic Death Metal attack which you could easily mistake for being something… Continue Reading →

Blaze Of Perdition – The Harrowing Of Hearts (Metal Blade)

This posed a question, is it better to hear new material on album first or live? Having caught Polish act Blaze Of Perdition a couple of months ago and noted that their song-craft would probably make more sense if allowed… Continue Reading →

Haxandraok – KI SI KIL UD DA KAR RA (Van)

Sometimes I watch bands live or hear a song or record and just think ‘what is the point in this?’ Truthfully, I find a disdain for anything that isn’t trying to at least tread some new ground, even if that… Continue Reading →

Loathfinder / Druj – Aspects Of Oblation (Godz Ov War)

A Polish / US split here I believe. Not that I’m familiar with either band, mind, but let’s have a listen. Poles Loathfinder are first. ‘Soil Of The Starving’ opens up and rages with some ferocious, chaotic death metal howling… Continue Reading →

Moanaa – Torches (S/R)

Polish sludge wouldn’t necessarily be something you would imagine yourself listening to, instead maybe something you’d pick up at your local corner shop and drink. But lazy cultural stereotypes aside, this is epic sounding (at least on paper) post metal/rock/sludge/doom…. Continue Reading →

Hell’s Coronation – Ritual Chalice Of Hateful Blood (Godz Ov War)

The Polish duo responsible for this “ceremony of black and rot supremacy” are Coffincrusher and Zepar ex members of Deadthorn, Mastiphal, Defekator and Nekrofukk (live). Having released a couple of demos, a split with Cadaveric Possession and a compilation they… Continue Reading →

Arkona – Age of Capricorn (Debemur Morti)

Black metal from Poland is not a rarity, but it is a trademark for quality. Arkona are up there amongst them, having spent 26 years on the subject and now reaching the milestone of their seventh full album release. This… Continue Reading →

Misanthropic Rage – Towards the Greyscale Aphorism (Godz ov War)

After two firecracker albums in “Gates No Longer Shut” (2016) and “Igne Natura Renovatur Integra” (2018), Polish black metal band Misanthropic Rage makes a welcome return with this one. Both of the previous albums were atmospheric and sophisticated, differing from… Continue Reading →

Trup – Szmula (Godz Ov War)

I think Trup may translate to Corpse but anything else about this strange Polish trio is quite honestly not particularly up for interpretation in any sense of the word. V, P & B the mentalists behind this outfit come across… Continue Reading →

MRome – Leech Ghetto (S/R)

As I discovered on covering last unwieldly entitled album ‘Noetic Collision on the Roof of Hell’ Polish band MRome don’t exactly play by the rules. Truly independent they state that they “are not interested in promoting band members by lame… Continue Reading →

Mgla – Zagreb Mochvara 6/9/19

With some honourable exceptions, black metal bands seem to be avoiding South-Eastern Europe. For no reason really, as the sold out Mgla show in Zagreb proves. There are clubs and individuals that are perfectly able to organize and promote the… Continue Reading →
