Mariusz Lewandowski: A Journey Into the Abyss

It's been a while since I was motivated to create a list. Coupled with my current penchant for black metal, Mariusz Lewandowski's art was the spark I needed to dig into a few unfamiliar bands and contribute something to this place. I enjoyed learning more about Mariusz and discovering some new bands along the way. It's a testament to Mariusz's artwork that he only just began the cover-design aspect of his business in 2017 with Bell Witch's MIRROR REAPER. Below you'll find some articles that will help you gather more insight into his work: https://killyourstereo.com/news/1106754/mariusz-lewandowski-the-man-behind-the-art/ https://daily.bandcamp.com/features/mariusz-lewandowski-feature
1Abigail Williams
Walk Beyond The Dark


Not much I need to say for this. It's one of my top bm albums for 2019.

2Rogga Johansson
Entrance to the Otherwhere


This can be tagged with a variety of metal styles for good reason. It straddles the line between various styles of metal very well. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

3Bell Witch
Mirror Reaper


Not often does an album come packaged as a one-track behemoth. I feel like you have to be in a specific mind-state to follow this album all the way through but when you are and you do it hits quite hard.

4Astral Altar
A∴A∴


There are some good riffs in here, but nothing fantastical. Short and sweet is the key here.

5Xenobiotic
Mordrake


A solid dm/tech-death metal release from a solid band.

6False
Portent


This is a doom/bm combo done well. I enjoyed this very much.

7Atlantean Kodex
The Course of Empire


Despite my lack of interest in power metal these days, this is actually quite interesting and ranks higher relative to this list as a result.

8Fuming Mouth
The Grand Descent


This is a pretty straight forward hc offering and very samey throughout. Not the most ambitious album but the band is competent enough to warrant a listen.

9Eremit
Carrier of Weight


With only 3 tracks this kinda dips in the middle, but 1 and 3 are really strong tracks so that makes this a pretty good listen.

10Sepulcher
Panoptic Horror


This is interesting enough to be good and with just enough variety to keep me engaged.

11Cardiac Rupture
The Creator's Hand


This was interesting to listen to. It was definitely outside of my comfort zone as far as metal goes, but it was intriguing enough to keep me engaged. The audio samples that were sprinkled in were my favorite part about this. Overall, it was not as bad as I first expected due to this being quite distant to the metal I usually enjoy.

12Psycroptic
As The Kingdom Drowns


This has some cool moments and then kinda dips off in some songs. It's somewhere between a 2.5 and 3 for me, but I lean more towards a 3 because it's a grower for sure.

13Elder Druid
Golgotha


This is kind of average with a few bright spots sprinkled in. If you're absolutely itching for another doom/dm combo this wouldn't hurt.

14Mizmor
Cairn


This isn't terrible. The dm/doom pairing is slightly interesting at times, but ultimately I didn't feel like there was enough here to entice me to come back for multiple listens.

15Shrine of the Serpent
Entropic Disillusion


Pretty average bm/doom combo going on here. Very samey throughout the whole album. Nothing really pulled me into this, unfortunately.

16Tómarúm
Wounds Ever Expanding


A little too much going on here for me to really enjoy.
