Poland's Furia have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for less of a black metal direction than previous releases and into more of an avant garde and experimental style of metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "W snialni" which was released by Pagan Records.
A very dark and experimental sound starts off the album along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later while both of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. Psychedelic sounds can also be heard in the background briefly as well as some filed recordings also being mixed into the songs.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the heavier guitars bring an influence of black metal into the music. The album also has its avant garde moments along with some evil sounding laughter also being utilized briefly and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction, melodic guitar leads can also be heard briefly and towards the end a small amount of blast beats can also be heard.
On this album Furia moves away from the harsher vocals and black metal elements of previous releases and goes into more of an avant garde experimental direction. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover depression, misanthropy and hatred themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Furia and while some black metal fans might not like the new direction, I can see this recording appealing more to fans of avant garde and experimental metal. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Wesele w snialni". 8 out of 10.
