|Music From Poland|
Today I would like to introduce you to music from my homeland rcountry, Poland. I know rthere are several well-known bands from Poland, but there is also plenty of quite obscure racts. I'll rconcentrate on the genres represented in Poland by pretty quality artists imho: rDeath metal, Progressive and... Post-metal. List contains also three bands which are popular rin Poland, but never attempted to make an international career.
The most famous band originating from Poland, started as a black metal
band, but now their style is blackened death metal. Their frontman, Nergal,
is a kind of celebrity in Poland, because of his relationship with local pop-star, Doda (recently ended) and his,
finally succesful, struggle against cancer. Unfortunately I've never listened to any of their records... Should I?
Black to the Blind
This is the only Vader album I've heard. As you can figure I'm not really a
death metal fan, but I'm aware of their notoriety since early 90's.
Decapitated is more familiar to me than the former bands, I have listened
to their last three albums. I'm considering my attendance at their tomorrow
gig in Warsaw.
Second Life Syndrome
I'm pretty sure they are recognized by majority of prog fans. I have never
seen them live, but I intend to change this situation. I believe this is one of
the best Polish releases of all time.
A solo project of the vocalist/bassist of Riverside, very interesting.
Lesser known progressive act, they deserve more attention imo.
|7||Division By Zero|
Another excellent progressive band from Poland, you should check out their
New progressive metal band, for fans of Tool and Meshuggah.
Affliction XXIX II MCMXCVI
Now we proceed to my fav genre: Post-metal. Blindead is an outstanding
band. They slay live, I've seen them three times. Tomorrow may be the
fourth, they will be performing on the same festival as Decapitated. Every
Post-metal fan should check out this album, as well as their former -
Autoscopia/Murder in Phazes.
|10||Forge Of Clouds|
Forge Of Clouds
Post-metal. They just put out their debut album, but already have material
for another release. Download their stuff from bandcamp.com now!
Anaesthetic Inhalation Ritual
This young Post-metal band will release their first record this year. What's
interesting, they're fronted by... a girl. Two tracks are already available on
bandcamp.com, I recommend to check them out.
|12||Guantanamo Party Program|
Guantanamo Party Program
Another Post-metal band, their lyrics are sung in Polish (but are hard to
understand even to me). They debut album is quite impressive.
Promising Post-metal band, their three-track EP is available on bandcamp.com
|14||Echoes of Yul|
Echoes of Yul
Drone/doom/sludge band from the city where I was born.
|15||Tides From Nebula|
Post-rock band, have released one full-length album up till now.
Juicy Planet Earth
Active in 90's, recently reformed. Actually this is really excellent release.
Their music is difficult to categorize, it's kinda alternative or nu- metal.
Clinic For Dolls
Female-fronted gothic metal band.
Legendary Polish post-punk/alt rock band, unknown outside Poland.
One of two most notable hardcore punk bands from Poland.
|20||Cool Kids Of Death|
Cool Kids Of Death
Indie/punk rock band. There was a time when I listened to this record again
and again for a whole week.
|Golec Orkiestra. Some awesome Polish folk/polka music. |
|17's last album was surprisingly good. Cool list.|
|1-4, tak niesamowite. Wielkie listy. |
|Of course we don't have a really mighty scene in Poland, there is no comparison to US or UK, or even Sweden or Finland. However, I witness a development of some of these bands, especially in Post-metal, and I'm not afraid of their future. I hope you enjoy the list.|
|You could add Contemporary Noise Quintet if you like Jazz. |
|listen to 1, they're brilliant|
|Part of my heritage. I'll check some of these out.|
|I know a few of these; some great and some average.|
Although 4 is one of my favourite bands of all time.
|Btw: are there any other Poles on Sputnik? Polish Americans/Canadians are allowed!|
|I'm a quarter Polish. |
My grandmother (babci as we call her) and her brothers are full Polish and were in concentration camps during the war.
|I'm Polish. The list lacks Corruption, Neuma, Rootwater and Black River. Other than that, zajebista
|Finally a list about music...|
6 is sweet. Will definitely check out a bunch of these.
|hey where's HEY ? |
This is great ! bookmarked it for later references ! thanks !
|wtf ya hey lol |
|Realm? HEY is cool ! |
By the way, nice comment on my lake of tears review ! lol !
|needs penderecki, lutoslawski, gorecki, chopin, krzysztof komeda and tomasz stanko |
|I might check some of those bands soon, especially progressive ones, since I'm on prog/alt rock binge lately. |
W sumie poza Riverside (i Comą;)) polska scena prog rockowa jest mi zupełnie nieznana.
