Odpadni Galerie is Czech metal band Stily Plamenu's latest output, their fourth in their career. All members of this trio have same first name: Lord! Moribund on bass and vocals, Egon on guitars and drummer Sheafraidh. A guest female vocalist by the name of Lady Felis was also recruited to bring a harmonious touch to their sound.
Overall, their musical style could be described as melodic Black Metal with a certain progressive aspect popping in once and a while. The production is pretty good, not of the raw sort as such, although kind of "mid range" with the drumming lacking punch at first. This is felt mostly in the first three songs oddly, since from track 4 to the end, the sound is improved and crunchier for some reasons. A bit of keyboards and electronics are offered on opening track "Sis Mezimestskych Stock" and a symphonic orchestration opens "Nez Zacaly se V Praze Stavet Stoky". Most of the time, you can hear generic Black Metal with blast beats, raspy vocals, tremolo picking but also some moderate parts with nice crushing guitar sounds. The musicianship is pretty good but the songwriting could be improved since none of this music really stands out. The compositions don't actually take off and never show their personality.
Odpadni Galerie doesn't grab the listener as it could but still, there are no bad tracks here.
