PAGAN RECORDS TO RELEASE DOUBLE-GATEFOLD LP OF FURIA’S ‘NOCEL’

To anyone who dares claim black metal has lost its charm of originality, show them Furia’s Nocel. The Polish band, masterminded by Nihil from the famous Massemord and Morowe, have succeeded in blending many disparate styles and influences under one banner. After the success of the CD release last year, Pagan Records are releasing a double-gatefold vinyl version, with stunning sleeve artwork. 

Furia

 

Despite the diversity, Nocel certainly feels like it’s from one band. It feels like one band cooking up incredible melodies and singing vocals on “Zamawianie Drugie”, then throwing in blistering blast beats, or spoken word in the central 13-minute “Niezwykla Nieludzka Nieprzyzwoitosc”, or psychedelic guitar offshoots. The songs go in any number of different directions, leaving the music still feeling fresh after multiple spins. Nihil’s vocals are incredible throughout, whether as a whisper or a roar, although the musicianship matches the high caliber with ease, particularly the off-kilter guitar work. Nocel is sure to rock the boat in the Polish black metal scene, and anyone with even a passing interest must check this record out.
