If you like Polish black metal, you should know Furia. If you don't, you need to correct that mistake immediately; but avoid W Śnialni at all costs.

I am curious what music direction Furia followed on this album...

Nice cover. It suggests original music for the genre they belong... I wonder if it actually is?

Wow. Perhaps if I spoke the language this would have more an impact on me, but from the outside looking in this is a really bad album.

Great build-up through and through in this atmospheric and hypnotic experimental rock release. Highly inventive in its sampling concepts and adjusting the mixing and volume as the album progresses.

I thought the album completely fucked up any sense of build up. Any time it felt like it was building up to something it completely dropped the ball. This feels completely worthless to me.

You cannot really treat this album as music. It even says on the Bandcamp page of the album:
„Our goal was something on the border of a radio play / theater of imagination and a music album..." - says Nihil.

I find the album enjoyable when I put my headphones, lay down and imagine the setting - actors wandering through some dark maze, opening various doors and shouting at each other - "Here!" - "Not here, there!" - "We've been here before" - etc. Knowing the language definitely helps. I love the frequent use of "kurwa" - anyone familiar with the Polish meme formats probably will as well.

I suppose that after Blindead's Niewiosna, which was not in a small way influenced by Nihil's imagination, he felt the need to project such experimental tendencies on his own band as well. That being said, I really hope that this is just a temporary experiment which will somehow influence the band's future endeavors in the experimental black metal genre, but not necessarily dictate how their future works will look like. Because I can't really say how many "W Śnialni"s I'd be able to endure before I'd lose my patience with their musical direction. Probably not many.

I agree!

Well, this is still music album no matter what musicians says because it contains sounds, right? But this type of "experimental music albums" were recorded long ago in the 50's (of XX century) so there is nothing new under the Sun. Every such attempt has one result: musical failure. There are no harmony, no melodies, no clue, no story which are one of the several main cornerstones and foundations of every true Art. This is something that kindergarten kid can record with even better result. It is not even a "background music" because it is better to listen rain or wind or pink noise...

I want them to do this again and avoid all the obnoxious stuff like production changes etc. Cause there's a really cool album hidden somewhere in here...

Any Musical Drama rec's are kindly appreciated.

One of the few recommendations of recent multitudes of tabs from here and you all I've got that might be worthwhile.

[EDIT} Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make! When your hipster black metal album student art film project goes full circle, pissing off the very same listeners it was intended for instead of the black metallers against it.

I guess changes in production were to warm you, then sampling rallied together with completely different dynamics on a consistent basis might make you need to take a shower. I really admire that they took the risk and yolo'ed here.

Guess this will be my ticket into revisiting to see if any can try and compare to this beast.

I didn't actually hate it, although I've never heard Furia's other work so haven't got grounds to be cheesed off by it. There's definitely sections of it that felt like they could be featured in a really interesting avant-garde metal album (such as the build that runs for a few minutes in the second half of the first track), but overall it's not as satisfying as it could be. The messing around with the audio channels could be an interesting curve ball if done once or twice, but for it to be used so consistently just ruins the flow in a way that doesn't actually benefit the experience, particularly with how sudden the shifts are, rather than them being faded transitions
