Calm Hatchery

Sacrilege of Humanity

The Polish death metal scene strikes again with another thoroughly interesting and quality release. It's incredible how many awesome acts the country has in that particular scene. This one is presented by a quintet called Calm Hatchery from the northern part of the country, featuring members of Dead Infection and Tehace. Not bands I'm familiar with, but what the heck, here's a review of their sophomore album "Sacrilege Of Humanity".

With death metal, it's relatively easy to distinguish between a generic release and a solid one. The former lacks all the slaying serpentine riffs of the latter, or it may have them but they don't appear as striking and powerful. And riffs, my friends, are in abundance on this record. They are brutal, but varied. Faithful to the genre, but yet oddly convincing and memorable, not to mention the modern flavor rippled by the crisp production values. There are intermittent pieces of melody scattered on the album, most notably in "Messerschmitt" and "We Are The Universe", where the band combines Morbid Angel influence with the precision of mighty Polish legends Decapitated. Technically advanced solos are also found as purveyors of pure awesome on more or less every track on the record.

Some may argue "Sacrilege Of Humanity" to be a rather unoriginal album, and that is true. But I ask thee: what matters unoriginality if the riffs are sublime track in and track out? To this scribe, not much, and given the thick and voluminous growling laid on top of the brutal instrumentation, I think it's safe to say that the Polish death metal scene has released yet another noteworthy album in the genre.
