Rites of Blasphemy

Rated 1.5/5 (30%) (2 Votes)

Second album from this Polish band who only formed in 2009. This is billed as "Black Groove Metal" which made me leery, but overall it's not that groovy. I'm not sure how I really feel about this. It's got a good guitar tone and decent riffs, but several of the songs are too long and go for some kind of psychedelic Doom vibe, and it doesn't really fly. I like that you can really hear the bass on this, and that the band has their own sound and are really pushing to do something different that doesn't suck. That said, this just doesn't grab me, and the songs don't have nearly enough identity to be really memorable. An interesting band, but not yet a great one.
