Some pretty cool stuff from Polish Black/Thrashers Witchmaster here. Trücizna ("Poison") sure doesn't bring anything new to the genre, but the execution mostly makes up for the lack of originality. You get the expected vocals – Thrash meets BM rasps, though here they're a bit more shouted than usual which is just about the only way the vocals could possibly stand out and be counted in the midst of the musical rampage courtesy of some fast and chaotic guitars and drums; sometimes this just sounds like they all racing to the finish line to see who can play the fastest, and that includes the vocals. Ouch, my neck!

Things do slow down a little bit on occasion, and that's where Trücizna gets into "catchy mode" – not the greatest songs ever, even a bit repetitive, but they'll get stuck in your head for days. Trücizna is all about in-your-face raw Black/Thrash; aggressive, dirty, sometimes completely out of control, but there's lots of headbanging and some air-guitaring material on offer here. I got an mp3 promo of this bad boy, but the LP will be on my next order.
