Artrosis

Posród Kwiatów I Cieni (Metal Mind Productions) Enslain Magazine Issue #8
If the non-English title doesn't give enough away, this release whose title translates to "Among Flowers and Shadows" is sung entirely in their native tongue of Polish. Though in the past they have released an English version of one of their CDs, they've decided to accept the possible media hindrance, and offer this one in it's truest form. Delicate female vocals are laced atop the occasionally more delicate instrumentation, consisting of pianic and synthesized keyboards, bass-light and often cymbal-heavy drumming, and distorted guitars being the only metallic element present. The result is sometimes a gothic sort of melancholy, and sometimes an upbeat sort of darkwave. But this definitely stands out as unique, interesting, and gently heavy. -- Lady Enslain
