Label: Ossuary Records
OKRUTNIK hails from Poland. ''Legion Antychrysta'' is their 1st full-length studio album and it was released via Ossuary Records (propably the new hottest name in the record industry).The music of OKRUTNIK is a weird combination of Black Metal with Heavy Metal elements.The technical experience of the band members can be easily perceptible. Songs like ''Sabat'', ''Legion Antychrysta'', 'Lament Księcia Czarnej Magii'', ''Noc Galicyjska'' are the perfect samples of the album. Black speed metal songs with a pure Heavy metal attitude from which I can ''hear'' influences like DISSECTION / KREATOR / NIFELHEIM. The melodic side of the band is expressed in the song ''Portret Trumienny, a Na Grobach Kwiaty '', a sentimental song with melodies and aggression together. Great tune with a refrain that stucks in your mind!
The album contains 8 songs:
4.Lament Księcia Czarnej Magii
5.Portret Trumienny, a Na Grobach Kwiaty
8.Wrześniowe Popołudnie Rzeźnika
As you probably noticed, the language is Polish, but this makes it special!
The production of the album is crystal, solid and heavy. The cover artwork is a classic thrash metal, war-influenced cover.
Released on CD and only 100 copies on cassette (50 black & 50 red colored) via Ossuary Records.
A must have release for every true metaller outhere!
