I was quite charmed by 2011’s Subliminal Visions, my first acquaintance with Polish band Deep Desolation, released via The End Of Time Records. So I was quite happy when the very same label, which has a very interesting roster lately, did send us the successor of Subliminal Visions, Rites Of Blasphemy.
The End Of Time Records
Polish one-man army Primal (run by a guy who calls himself PrimalOne; you might remember his name from his collaboration with Iugulatus and Deep Desolation) was formed in 2008, and as from the beginning of this decade, Primal have been pretty productive. With both bands mentioned above there was a split in 2011 (called Chapel Of Fear), and besides a couple of demonstrational recordings, Primal recorded and released several EP’s and full lengths in mean time.
A.O.D. is the abbreviation for Architects Of Disease. It’s a Polish act, formed in 2012 after the demise of Iugulatus. The question is whether A.O.D. can be considered a new band, or whether it is Iugulatus after a change of moniker. As a matter of fact, Iugulatus split up after the departure of singer Balrog; shortly before, also drummer Wojtass left. Both of them are now in Slain, but that’s another story.
From time to time, we do receive material ‘out of the black’, or ‘the blue’ if you want to, and such thing is this album, by a Polish act I had never heard of before. Apparently, Doomster Reich were formed at the end of 2011 in Lodz, and as a quartet (Rasz- v, d; Markiz-g; Voytek-g; and Radek-b) they recorded this album at the very end on 2012 at the (for me unknown) Pawel Drozd’s Studio.
