Gruzja are a band from Poland that plays black metal with elements of post punk and crust and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Pierwszy koncert w miescie" which will be released on April 30th by Devoted Art Propaganda.
Spoken word and music samples start off the ep before going into a heavier direction while the vocals are mostly angry sounding black metal screams. Clean singing can also be heard briefly while elements of crust and post punk can also be heard in some parts of the recording.
All of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction while female vocals are also added onto the second track and the whole ep starts to a heavier section as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody.
Gruzja plays a style of black metal that is very slow and mid tempo as well as mixing in some elements of post punk and crust. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover nihilistic themes.
In my opinion Gruzja are a very great sounding black metal band with elements of post punk and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Moja Ratyzbona". 8 out of 10.
