admit I'd never heard them before, since their old works are available
only on tape, however, what a big surprise!
Labelled as brutal death, the Poles are actually much more complex,
as clearly shown in "Hybrid", a good example of violent,
but also twisted and skillful Death metal, balancing between the latest
Death, Cynic and so on. Besides the crushing riffs you can find some
weird ones in the background, matched with as weird vocals as them (but
the craziest are in "Z Page la - Idon Odmicalzo", sung
in an unknown language to me, and "Flash"); sound like
a mix of Macabre, Mr.Bungle and Cephalic Carnage!
Apart from 2 intermezzoes lost in the meanders of dance, trip-hop and
lounge ("Decimal" and "b.o.r.y.s."),
this bizarre 4-piece still hasn't shot all his bullets, cause the song
"Vortex" is another jewel to be cited: heavy, based
on a mid-tempo, and rife with aggressive vocals (seems an excerpt from
a B-side single from Fear Factory).
Original, with an interesting drum work, they must refine their songwriting
a little, especially as for guitars, taking as a positive example the
trail left by "Smell of Pain", but already now they
can boast the rare quality of not boring you for a single second. Nice
debut for an elité band that won't miss reaping fans in the sea
of those who love the most skillful and entwined aggressive metal.
