Marked by acerbic yet atrabilious tremolo picking riffs morphing to egregiously repetitive mediocrity in concinnity with the arguteness and fervidity of ride cymbals and Mikołaj's monotonic execution of vocals limning the profundity of an exquisite agony, Exercises In Futility reaches its apogee with the nascent insurgency of diaphenous hope and cauterized distantiation in "Exercises In Futility IV" suffused with poignant melodic fluidity without veering into schmaltzy saccharinity.

Yes this band delivers some of the best standard black metal in the business right now.

UADA exists, so Mgla might as well not.

I find it strange that you enjoy UADA with this much disdain for Mgla, they're very similar IMO. Mgla has better guitar tone/atmosphere IMO. Weird coincidence too as I am just about finished my first play through of "Cult Of A Dying Sun".

Uada wouldn't exist, had it not been for Mgla. Nothing wrong with Uada (apart from the fact that they are hipster wimps), but it's like saying that Barren Earth exists, so Opeth might as well not.

Seen Uada a couple of times live, and my God are they boring and like Nikarg said "hipster wimps" Mgla is so much more riveting both live and on album.

The important thing is Mgla doesn't need to exist because UADA are better, folks. With it, you need to deal.

Somehow later generation Polish BM bands as this, Babuska, Arkona , Cultes Des Ghoules, Plagla and Furuia never cached me. I prefer Iceland in that case
Lux Occulta, Vesania, Blaze Of Perdition, Thy Worshiper, Slavland are diferent story, I prefer Polish BM from mid and late 90's even I hate behemoth whit big passion, but respect narger work and attitude, but love his solo project
