TURIN TURAMBAR “Rzeczpospolita Czartowska”

“Rzeczpospolita Czartowska”
This is one of those band’s whose name I’ll have to really rub in just to remember it for a short while, let alone for the rest of my life. I hope the music will be easier to remember. I really like the way this album came packaged, in a cardboard cover with a little booklet. It looks so nice. It would be a shame if it turns out to be total shite musically. I’m not gonna attempt trying to pronounce the album title. That is a tongue breaker if you’re not Polish. The sound of this album is very old sounding. Like when you got a demo in your hand in the 80s and it was recorded on a porta studio. But there is a charm to that too. No, I’m not gonna go all nostalgic now. To be honest I didn’t expect TURIN TURAMBAR to be this death metal-ish that they are. I had kinda expected something more along the line of an avant-garde Celtic Frost. But I like the deathrash sound that this lot got going for themselves. Anders Ekdahl
