Oh boy, Friday night with Polish vodka and Polish black metal blazing in the speakers made me feel like posting something of the sort here. As no-one cares to look at pictures of vodka bottles and the content can't (yet) be ripped to digital form I guess I'm stuck with music. Unfortunately I don't have that many rips of exciting Polish material at hand and I don't post new stuff like Plaga, Cultes Des Ghoules or Mgła so I suppose we'll settle for this cassette EP from Immanis who were one of the lesser known 90's bands and not exactly a TTF favourite if I recall right. Tape trader stuff, so no covers. One image is from M.A. and the one below elsewhere, don't remember where.
Seven tracks might seem like a lot but there's "only" a bit over 18 minutes of music here as three of them are intros/interludes and the rest vary between 02:37 to 05:01 in duration. The second image displays a pretty professional looking release but soundwise this is (like often is the case with tape EPs) close to a demo recording. Some of it probably has to do with the dub quality as well, unfortunately. All instruments are audible enough, including keyboards and bass but something annoys me. It's probably the drum sound. Vocalist does kind of shouty version of bm vocals and I'm not sure if I dislike it, seem to be bothered by him on some bits while elsewhere he sounds ok. The music is melodic, not overtly sugar-coated so and has some of that pagan black metal vibe to it too, the riff on the second track sounds similar to something from either an Ohtar or Selbstmord song, can't remember which one it was now. Might be the vodka screwing with me too. Better than I remembered and seems to improve as it plays on but you'd better listen for yourself as I'm not very trustworthy witness right now.
