With solid, powerful and consistent rhythms, that maintains itself in a very cohesive pattern all the way through, despite 40 nocy grudnia explicitly displaying an absence of new elements, the record is abundant in unique features, with harmonies filled with beauty, delicacy and sensibility. Way more poetic than brutal, and amazingly painstaking, more receptive than aggressive, on this album we see a different side of the genre, that dwells in the principles of melancholy, as a primal element for the melodies, that seems to be a crying anthem to the suffering that affects us, directly and indirectly, all the way through, across the universe, in a marvelously understood embracing form.
A beautiful and captivating album, that appeals to the most sympathetic and colorful side of human nature, 40 nocy grudnia is a great work on the genre. With a unique style, punctuated by an intriguing degree of originality, the record relies primarily in the unraveling of soft, but latent and poetic melodies, that sounds to the ears as a catatonic whimpering, becoming liberated by the strength of a faith that challenges all the struggles that impairs the evolution of one’s soul. Such marvelous hymns that evokes power in the defeated abysses of the human spirit becomes a dignifying point of victory, for each and every person, that clearly sees the meaning in the melodies of the album.
A pleasant and enjoyable piece, 40 nocy grudnia is a very good work. Although I will not qualify the record as a masterpiece, given the fact that the sound is too uniform throughout the whole album, with little variations, it certainly almost gets there. With strength, vigor and a pulsating inclination towards a poetic redemption, 40 nocy grudnia is a majestic work. Lucid, consistent, melancholic, sincere and serene, this is an album exceedingly well developed for each and every fan of melodic black metal. Impeccable – although in its own terms –, definitely it is worthwhile checking it out.
