The "Let the World Burn" collective has been a unique anomaly in Poland's black and extreme metal history. Featuring Odraza's thick, grooving sadness, Morowe's avant-garde escapades, MasseMord's rage and the gothic abstraction of both Duszę Wypuścił and Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi, this interconnected group of musicians follow a much different path than Poland's history scrawled in harsh, brackish distortion. Of course, no mention of this collective can be valid without referencing their central and most successful figure, Furia. Having honed their specific vision of black metal, something they call Nekrofolk, for thirteen years, Furia continues to be a punctuated force to be reckoned with.

Returning with Księżyc milczy luty (Moon Silent Severe), Furia's melodic, emotive "Nekrofolk" beautifully melds subtle, folky melodies with dense, rocking might. Though this five piece thematically centers around a more traditional sense of misanthropic hatred, this latest effort concentrates more on the despondent side of misanthropy. Echoes of bassist Sars's bass-performance-heavy efforts in Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi's Światu jest wszystko jedno give Furia's newest incarnation much more rounded edges than their previous, sharper performances, but with bottom-heavy, rounded edges comes weight. Księżyc milczy luty is heavy, both sonically and emotionally; even at their most aggressive, Furia in 2016 gazes downward and fills speakers with gloom.

Furia's Księżyc milczy luty will be released on CD by Polish metal purveyors Pagan Records on November 14th. See below for an exclusive first listen to the entire first album.
