Nocturnal Mass* is pleased to announce their very first release – a split CD featuring Polish bands MALCHUS and POSPOLITE RUSZENIE.
Melodic/progressive death metal band Malchus, formed in 2004, give us “Caput Mundi” – their 2nd studio album. 7 songs (30 minutes) of hard-to-label metal – compositions characterized by their interesting structure and form. Imagine melding Opeth and Dream Theater, with guest vocals from outstanding ILLUMINANDI/POSPOLITE RUSZENIE vocalist Jan Trebacz.
Pospolite Ruszenie have brought together musicians from two completely different musical worlds for their debut recording “Swiebodnosc” – the band’s line-up comprises members of OPEN FOLK, a band who performs early/Celtic folk music, and ILLUMINANDI, known for their fantastic folk/gothic metal. Their 3 songs (15 minutes) fuse hard music with mediaeval, renaissance and baroque music and original Old Polish poetry and Bible passages for lyrics – a classic rock line-up accompanied by musicians on period instruments. Pospolite Ruszenie bring a truly unique flavour to the folk metal scene.
