Sick musicians from Poland!!! Remember (or ever heard of) Lux Occulta? What about Thy Disease? Well, check in their direction for amazing twisted Black Metal.

In the meantime, let's have a look at this different breed of wild cats, Vesania. Ever since I heard their previous release "God the Lux", I have admired those brilliant, modern Black Metallers. I mean this is awesome music. Not your everyday dose of dark metal. Deep rasps, tearing/crushing guitar work and crazy time signatures, insane drumming and theatrical keyboards. Not to forget a solid rhythmic section, varied but mostly sick and wicked voices, cool guitar solos, more than a little progressive edge and simply head-spinning compositions. There is a lot happening on this disc and you'd better pay attention because some of this stuff will pass right under your nose, so most likely many listens will be necessary. This is progressive Symphonic Black Metal par excellence ladies and gentlemen! Top notch musicianship no doubt about it, paired with mature songwriting is what you'll hear on "Distractive Killusions." Just about every tracks is worth mentioning but this is my infernal trio: "The Dawnfall (Hamartia and Hybris)", "Silence Makes Noise (Eternity-the Mood)" and "Hell is For Children."

If you're not afraid to listen to something fresh and different!
