GURTHANG (Poland) – ‘Shattered Echoes’

Genre – Dark Black/Death Metal
Release Date – January 20th, 2017
Record Label – Cimmerian Shade Recordings (US)

GURTHANG from Poland have crafted a stellar album which traverses multiple genres but maintains a sound of their own. Cimmerian Shade Recordings has found yet another brilliant genre-bending band after PLASMODIUM. GURTHANG play what can be called an epic elaboration of the black and death metal styles and exude a melancholic ambience that nods towards the genre of doom. The album is masterfully executed with extra drive especially in the drumming department so that a certain level of intensity and grip is maintained throughout. This ambitious album will go down as one of the finest in the style this year. Don’t miss out.
