THY WORSHIPER’s “Bajki o Staruchu” Streaming Ahead of Release

Available for pre-order now

Originating from Poland, Dublin-based pagan black folk metal act Thy Worshiper are streaming their upcoming fifth studio album “Bajki o Staruchu” (translates to “Fairytales about an old man” from Polish) ahead of its release via Pagan Records on 17 November 2021. 

Listen to the album via Folk n Metal: https://folknrock.com/exclusive/album-premiere-thy-worshiper-bajki-o-staruchu

Coming six years after the release of “Klechdy”, “Bajki o Staruchu” is a concept with eight new tracks based on fairy tales that are held together by the main character of the album title, the Old Man. 

Musically, “Bajki o Staruchu” is a continuation of the path the band carved out on “Czarna dzika czerwień” and “Klechdy”, a mixture of non-obvious ethno-folk and pagan black metal, with a large dose of individuality.

It’s that individuality that led Thy Worshiper to be included in Metal Hammer UK’s list of eleven bands that redefined the concept of folk metal. The band is described as having an “impressively menacing atmosphere, expressed through chanting and hypnotic guitar riffs. This isn’t music for the faint of heart, but it’s a dark journey that rewards as well as challenges.

Two new musicians make their debut on “Bajki o Staruchu”: Jarun’s Marcin Pazera on drums and Monika Lubas on vocals.

GRAMMA VEDETTA – Announce New Album Release Date

Posted in Heavy Metal with tags , , , , on November 10, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

GRAMMA VEDETTA’s new album The Hum of The Machine will be released on May 27, 2022. The London-based dynamic duo draw inspiration from vintage sci-fi of the late 70s and early 80s. Heavily distorted guitars, soaring melodies and driving rhythms create a huge progressive sound that transcends this dimension.

“We’re stoked by what we achieved with The Hum Of The Machine. This album is a complete audio and visual experience – we can’t stop listening to it. Each song has been crafted with great attention to detail and top-notch production. Talented illustrators helped us to translate our sounds to images and we can’t stop exploring it. With this album we have definitely reached a higher level, with our own sound, different from everything you ever heard before.”

Forming in 2017, GRAMMA VEDETTA released their debut EP Proof of Concept in 2018 with a grunge focus, followed by the 2020 EP A.C.I.D Compliant that leaned into stoner rock. The new album delves further into the progressive world. The Hum of The Machine is a collection of nine scenes that tell the story of a man who seeks to remain unique in a world where compliance ensures you a place in the upper echelons of society. “A Chance To Win The Orb” delivers an explosive opening to the album producing a wall of sound. Throughout the album the duo unleashes their creativity through different styles. The fuzz-driven banger “Robots For Wars” precedes a darker, haunting atmosphere unveiled in “A Broken Time Machine”, while “The Future Of The Past” brings immense impact through the guitars and an incredibly catchy vocal hook.

Characterised by immense sounding riffs, down-tuned instruments and their passion for science fiction. Aptly portraying themes explored in Sci-Fi literature and films with their own distinctive vision, GRAMMA VEDETTA have designed a thrilling album. The Hum of The Machine is an exploration into the unknown that is not to be missed.

Daniele: Guitar, Vocals, Synth
Marco: Bass, Backing Vocals, Synth
