PANDEMONIUM “The Ancient Catatonia”

“The Ancient Catatonia”
(Old Temple)
I need to check my fanzine collection but every time I see this band’s logo I’m reminded of an old Polish fanzine that I think was called just PANDEMONIUM. I can’t remember if I’ve ever heard a single track by this Polish band but as they say better late than never. I am not saying that all Polish death metal bands sound like Behemoth because that is not true. PANDEMONIUM remind me instead of the Mexican band Argentum (who happens to be one of my all time faves). This is slow and very atmospheric death metal, the kind you gotta have patience for to fully appreciate it. As I think this is my first encounter with PANDEMONIUM I gotta say that I’m pretty impressed by this album even if it is somewhat old. I was kind expecting another Morbid Angel/Behemoth induced death metal album. Instead I got an album that reminded me of one of my all time fave bands. Anders Ekdahl
