Today I’m “back to my roots”, meaning, we’ll have a Polish Black Metal album featured on Metal-Maniac. No, I’m not Polish, but this country has produced some of my all time favorite bands and I just love the way Polish sounds in Extreme Metal bands. It feels like a language very suited for Black Metal, for example. And I should let you know already what will be reviewed today, an album by the band Srogość named “W Szaleństwie”.
Here we have a release that is very atmospheric, symphonic at times, that is very elegant and stunning beautiful. The music is dense and well made, very varied and interesting. There are some amazing riffs that contribute to the high quality of the music created by Srogość. The music is guitar-driven, with melodies that create an epic sound and memorable moments. The vocals are one more element that caught my attention, like I said before, I love the way Polish sounds and Susurrus shows that is way more than a competent vocalist, the work here is superb.
The production of the album is crystal clear; you can hear even the detailed elements of the songs with distinction. The orchestrations and “mood changing” in each song are simply stunning. The music feels majestic, sumptuous and polished. I really enjoyed this release and hope that many others will give Srogość a chance.
Last, but not least, support these creative musicians any way that is possible for you; sharing their Bandcamp page, letting your friends know about “W Szaleństwie”, posting their Facebook link into your own social media of choice and, when you are able to, by purchasing the album, that’s all I ask.
Have a good day.
