Furia – GuidoPosted: November 9, 2016 | |
[ Pagan Records, 2016 ]
Grim sounds for the grim future? It appears so on the newest EP by the Silesian black metal masters Furia Guido, which was recorded in a location that was both very untypical and totally kvlt: the coal mine Guido, 320 meters below the ground. Guido is a wonderful homage to both the cold atmosphere of black metal and the industrial landscapes of Upper Silesia, where the Black Gold is extracted from the bowels of the Earth. The resulting sound is a bass-heavy black cloud hovering above the bleak soundscape (“1”, “2”, “Lew Albinos”) which isn’t afraid to show a softer, experimental rock inspired side (“Hahary”, “Łączka”) that soon gets expanded on their freshly released LP Księżyc milczy luty. Highly recommended!
