This week is Polish metal week at Invisible Oranges! It’s not intended as a definitive guide, as Encyclopaedia Metallum currently lists 1788 Polish metal bands (theoretically, a productive blog could focus on Polish metal alone). Instead, it’s more a result of noticing that many albums on my desk happened to be from Polish bands.

The best initial resource for Polish metal is Justin’s Polish Metal Page. While passionate and informative, it hasn’t been updated since October ’06, and even a basic MySpace perusal shows many good bands he doesn’t mention. Thus, as with any thriving scene, Polish metal offers continuous exploration. I present some finds from mine this week, arranged by genre. Enjoy!
