Furia are a band from Poland that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording they talk their raw and atmospheric style of black metal and mix it with folk music with a style they refer to as 'Nekrofolk' and this is a review of their 2016 album "Ksiezyc Milczy Luty" which will be released in November by Pagan Records.
Militant drum beats and clean guitars start off the album along with a great amount of full chords and after awhile the music starts getting heavier and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and spoken word parts are also added into some of the songs.
When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion and clean singing vocals can also be heard at times while also using a great amount of black metal screams and all of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and after awhile the vocals also bring in a more angry shouting style.
You can also hear a decent amount of melody in the heavier riffing and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while also alternating between both metal and folk sections.
Furia plays a musical style on this recording that takes a very raw and atmospheric style of black metal and mixes it with folk music which is all done on clean yet distorted guitars and avoids the acoustic guitar approach most bands use when they mix this genre with metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover poetic themes that are influenced by the beauty of their home land Silesia.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Furia and if you are a fan of r aw and atmospheric black metal with a touch of folk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cialo" and "Grzej". 8 out of 10.
