Full Length Review: Gurthang "Martyrium" (Immortal Frost Productions) by Brynn Kali StarDew

Band: Gurthang
Country: Poland
Genre: Black/funeral doom metal
Full length: Martyrium
Format: Digital album, jewel case CD, standard black vinyl, opaque mustard/black swirl vinyl
Label: Immortal Frost Productions
Release date: May 31, 2024
I don't really see a lot of METAL bands nowadays where I am like “WOW that was truly original”, but I definitely felt that listening to Gurthang’s “Martyrium”. The lyrics were really interesting and I liked the part in “Aestherics of Solitude” at the end where he says “there are no gods in me” I can really relate to this as a Satanist. The ambient effects are excellent as well as the Musicianship/vocals. The transitions from slow, slow ambient sounds to fast guitar and drums are nicely done as well. This is definitely demonstrated on “Antithesis of Creation” and I think the ambient sounds are really nicely incorporated into the music in “Discernment”. However all the tracks have a good touch of it as well that brings out the real magic of the genre. -Brynn Kali StarDew
