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.
5Lunatic Soul
Lunatic Soul

A solo project of the vocalist/bassist of Riverside, very interesting.

Lesser known progressive act, they deserve more attention imo.
7Division By Zero
Independent Harmony

Another excellent progressive band from Poland, you should check out their
latest album.

New progressive metal band, for fans of Tool and Meshuggah.

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.
10Forge 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!
11Obscure Sphinx
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.
12Guantanamo 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
14Echoes of Yul
Echoes of Yul

Drone/doom/sludge band from the city where I was born.
15Tides 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.
20Cool 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.
