You like your music raw and in a big sludge pile of filth then Martyrdoom is the band for you! Heavy down-tempo riffs and death metal groove is what these Polish musicians gives you in a neat package. Poland as a country keeps on giving great metal. The amount of good bands I’ve discovered as of late that originate from there is really starting to stack up. Martyrdoom (fitting name) were formed in 2010 and has since then been working hard in order to finally release their full-length debut.
Their debut is a good one at that and been worth the wait. Already on the opener Betrayed Trust you get into this grime headbang friendly album that is Grievous Psychosis. The album keeps on spinning at a heavy brutal pace throughout it’s 37 minutes and you can’t help but to fall in love with yet another Polish band that knows how to present death through music. The slow doom passages that Martyrdoom uses is a perfect fit in their sound and Sociak’s voice. Mix Obituary, Triptykon, Grave and Autopsy in a blender and this would be the result basically. Menacing and vile stuff that’s sure to get most metalheads going.
I like the mix of death and doom Martyrdoom presents and Grievous Psychosis is a solid debut album, one of the better ones so far this year. A few tracks I wasn’t too keen on, such as Face Without a Person, but all in all a fine debut. Will be interesting to see how they follow this up and perfect their sound even more. My favorite tracks are Betrayed Trust, Lucifer Rise and Corpsefuck.
Martydoom’s debut album Grievous Psychosis is out now through Memento Mori.
