Exploration: Sacriversum – Shadow of the Golden Fire (1994)

Sacriversum were a Polish metal band dating back all the fucking way to 1993. Holy fuck, Poland in 1993? How come this band doesn't get more attention for that alone? Probably because after this blistering debut they jumped headlong into... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Lost – Fear-Strach (2003)

Agrimonia is band that's had me excited for the past couple years with their past two full-length releases. Of all the musical mashups they offer, Crust Punk is always the genre that comes up most when talking about them and... Continue Reading →

Vesania – Firefrost Arcanum (2003)

I think I saw this band on Instagram or somewhere were somebody was saying something like this is the equal of Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse. Pretty fucking bold statement but one that peaked my interest to be sure, so I tracked... Continue Reading →

Embrional – Absolutely Anti-Human Behaviors (2012)

My buddy Ben and I were talking about a band recently and he said they reminded him of Embrional, a Polish death metal band, to which I agreed, although I only had reference from one Embrional album, 2015's The Devil Inside,... Continue Reading →

Thy Worshiper – Czarna Dzika Czerwien (2014)

Ever since Thy Worshiper's 2016 album Klechdy place so highly on my year end list I've been meaning to go back and check out the bands other works. The Bandcamp ACLU charity drive Friday gave me the perfect excuse to grab some... Continue Reading →

Lux Occulta – Forever Alone, Immortal (1996)

I reviewed Lux Occulta's second album Dionys0s about a year ago when my buddy shared their first two albums with me. It has now taken me this long to listen to the first. Fucking slacker. Anywho, I loved the darkish, slightly progressive,... Continue Reading →

Infernal War – Redesekration: The Gospel of Hatred and Apotheosis of Genocide (2007)

One of the metal attributes I so thoroughly enjoy about Polish extreme metal is how angry, hateful, and particularly blasphemous they are. More often then not when I'm discovering an extremely anti-christian or generally anti-religious band they're from Poland. That and... Continue Reading →

Arkona – Imperium (1996)

I never get tired of repeating it, but metal is the gift that keeps on giving. Today I discovered Arkona through a stream of their new album (which is fucking rad) and low and behold, this is a band that's... Continue Reading →

Lux Occulta – Dionysos (1997)

Man do I have a weakness for Polish metal. If it’s extreme and I see Poland anywhere near it I’ll give it a listen. Unless it’s that National Socialist crap that Poland seems to have an abundance of, but that’s... Continue Reading →
