Today, Harvest of Death - a division of Signal Rex - sets January 31st as the international release date for a new mini-album from Poland's fast-rising Krypta Nicestwa, Sarkofagi nocnych zjaw, on single-sided 12" vinyl format.
Although a relatively new entity, forming in 2018, Krypta Nicestwa have feverishly built a considerable canon across two demos and two splits. Across those short-lengths, the duo have duly displayed their geographical constitution, honoring their noble roots with a grim 'n' mystical sound that's poignantly Polish in a most mid-'90s manner.
Now, with the four-song/21-minute mini-album Sarkofagi nocnych zjaw, Krypta Nicestwa transcend their prior work and strike upon a new sort of mastery. Still grim as ever, the duo's ruminations here are more restless and definitely more haunting, suggesting ghostly expanses in between their reverberating-through-the- night notes. Their black metal is melodic yet miserablist, devilish and delirium-inducing, hitting an absolute peak with the medieval, synth-led swell of "W sferze pzoagrobowego trwania," suggesting cobwebbed corridors they'll explore in the future.
