2021 - Black Metal from Poland
Re-release of the fourth full-length album by the cult Polish Black/Death/Dark Metal band. Dark Side awake. It is in each of us, and sleeps from time to time. Unleash the dark side, and you will know what it can do... It is the dark side of the human soul is devoted to the occult and pagan masterpiece "Darkside", and 15 years later we can again immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere of the legendary album of blasphemous Poles Christ Agony. Specificity of the genre moving away from Black Metal and firmly sits in the vast Dark Metal. However, this does not necessarily indicate a lack of an album, and in fact, dignity thanks shattered musical cliches full-off experiments. Electronic samples, the soft sound of flutes, percussion in the eastern style of performance, vocals bursting from screaming/growling to romantic-gothic, midtempo drums, keyboards ... accelerate air support, easy perception of the album and a rich palette of colors gives the sound of his unique artistic taste. The special charm of the album is hidden in the native language of musicians, lyrics which can be heard in 50 percent of the total material. Album strange chopped in half, like a fragment torn from suffering ... sometimes you can feel the violent moments close to Death Metal.
