Hot on the trails of their other Polish black metal attempt Vim Patior, Blackend signs Eclipse (formed 1997) and releases the Dorsacharms Venomous Colours EP.
ECLIPSE - DORSACHARMS VENOMOUS COLOURS - BLACKEND
The Blackend coin has two sides: on the one side is the positive. This must be one of the last remaining labels signing fresh demo bands. Nowadays most labels (ie Century bandwagon, Nukie Blast, etc) are content with stealing away already successful bands. On the other hand, this Polish bunch are a waste of The Metallian's precious time. I could be tending to the serfs or attending councils in my Towers' chambers; yet am hindered by this CD which under the false pretense of being metal has found its way into the music box. Yes, the guitars might be smooth and flowing on this epic dark band's debut, but the combination of drum machines, female belchers and synthesizers make for a heaven of a stew too weak for a master of metal.
