Highly recommend this one to anyone who is up and up on the Polish scene right now, and fans of Filth of Mankind, or old school thrash or black metal and are looking for a modern take on a classic sound.
This is not an album to be listened to in the bright daylight. In fact, if you were to try, the world would feel strange and dim as you listened.
Let this album caress your psyche. Feel the yearning and the anguish, the joy and the bittersweet sadness.
Across five tracks of murky darkness, the breath of destruction breathes moste foule… And that’s only the first side.
…a triumphant masterpiece, drawing the listener forward in a measured way, all while also channeling the utter chaos of the void.
The rest of the album, and the rest of the opening track, is this weird hybrid of experimental Black and Death Metal.
Audiophiles rejoice; this is the best sounding black metal album to date
Something wicked this way comes!
Litourgiya, in fact, may be my album of the decade.
