Not the first time we reviewed the progressive Black Metal act Misanthropic Rage from Poland, but this time we go back to their first release, the EP “Qualia” which was self-released by the band back in 2016.
Call it progressive, call it avant-garde, you’re getting a trip through pace changes (from fast to sinister atmosphere with leads only), strange clinical drum-(computer?)-patterns, a bit of dissonance, clean vocal passages, twists and what not. Everything combined this not an easy step-in if you are a second wave Black Metal enthusiast, but feel free to try the track title which has a duration of 17 minutes and beholds everything I just mentioned. With the 2nd track “Katharsis” it has hints of a more progressive yet less bombastic Limbonic Art approach. To top it off, they have also covered Satyricon’s “K.I.N.G.”.
For the adventurous among us only, but I think that advise will cover for all their releases. (Ricardo)
