Solitude In Madness
Label: Nuclear Blast
Release Date: May 1st 2020
Polish death metal veterans return with album number 16.
Solitude In Madness begins with “Shock And Awe” immediately makes the listener aware than even though the band are into double figures with album releases there is clearly no time for complacency and fires “into oblivion”.
Shortest track of the album “Despair” really crams in the ferocity, a standout track for me “Incineration of the Gods” is followed my personal favourite of the album ” Sanctification Denied” I especially enjoyed guitar tones on this track.
“And Satan Wept” is followed by solo driven “Emptiness”, “Final Declaration” isn’t quite the end of this particular offering as “Dancing In The Slaughterhouse”, “Stigma Of Divinity” & final crushing track “Bones” is the perfect send-off with its delivery – in particular, I enjoyed the slower, clearer vocals on this track which are absolutely first-rate.
Solitude In Madness takes no prisoners with it’s short & swift bludgeoning delivery
