Nocturnal Mass is a sub-label of Soundmass! This split CD features Polish bands Malchus and Pospolite Ruszenie (featuring members of Illuminandi!).
Melodic and progressive death metal band Malchus, formed in 2004, give us "Caput Mundi", their 2nd studio album. 7 songs of metal that is honestly hard to label, compositions characterized by their interesting structure and form. Imagine melding Opeth and Dream Theater, with guest vocals from outstanding Illuminandi/Pospolite Ruszenie vocalist Jan Trebacz.
Pospolite Ruszenie have brought together musicians from two completely different musical worlds for their debut recording "Swiebodnosc". The band's line-up comprises members of Open Folk, a band who performs early/Celtic folk music, and Illuminandi, known for their fantastic folk/gothic metal. Their 3 songs fuse hard music with mediaeval, renaissance and baroque music and original Old Polish poetry and Bible passages for lyrics, a classic rock line-up accompanied by musicians on period instruments. Pospolite Ruszenie bring a truly unique flavor to the folk metal scene! This is one of the most refreshing and uplifting death metal and folk metal releases we have heard in a long time! The music is unique, innovative, brutal, flavorful, and will sink deeply into your heart!
