ATMOSFEAR 24 Front Cover   

Ого, а я думал, что знаю этих ирландских поляков или польских ирландцев. Я ошибся, но ведь ничего не предвещало такого поворота событий. Четыре года назад, когда парни выпустили свой дебютный альбом я общался с ними и тогда это был дэз металл без претензий на какие-то высоты, но добротный. Включаю новый альбом и офигеваю. Что это? Не знаю. Но мне это нравится. Основа осталась дэзовая, но в остальном это авангард. Что-то по типу того скандального альбома Морбидов выпущенного в 2011 году. Т. е. столь же необычно и не ожидаемо. А что теперь случилось с вокалами, просто красота. Это действительно что-то новое. Это не имеет смысла описывать, это нужно слушать. Так держать.

PEDOPHILE PRIESTS is a duo of Poles living in Dublin. The leader is Piotr Niemczewski, a former member of the Polish-Irish THY WORSHIPER.The line-up from the debut “Dark Transgression of the Soul” was also with two persons, only with another drummer. Here is the link to the review of that release of my authorship: http://www.metalcentre.pl/2016/04/pedophile-priests-dark-transgression-of-the-soul/
Four years later, the successor to the debut entitled “Cancer” came. It contains mainly brutal, very technical, full of death-metal twisted riffss. Sometimes the music is dark and haunted, psychedelic, reminiscent of NILE. There are also sad moments.
The vocals on the album are very diverse: growls, strong singing through a constricted throat, typical for HC, clean, desperate, squeak, spoken, strangely modulated. Often, two different vocals are used simultaneously, which gives an interesting effect. The guitar is not inferior to the vocals. The guitars are complicated, difficult and full of creativity. The guitarist is characterized by high musicality, the ability to create interesting melodies, solos, licks. The drummer is adapted to the level of play with the other instruments. The electronics were used very sparingly but interestingly in these compositions.
The final song “Zejście w zaświaty” is an instrumental track based on an acoustic guitar, full of melancholy. It has captivating drama. This is an intriguing, thoughtful outro.
The music on “Cancer” is rich, full of ideas and imagination, requiring focus on its reception. You have to listen to the disc many times to get to know it well. For me, the latest opus of PEDOPHILE PRIESTS is breathtaking and is cool!

Rockcor 12020Чем меньше участников, тем сложнее и заковыристей музыка группы. Так и двое музыкантов из ирландского коллектива (обратите внимание на замечательное имя группы), видимо, не нашли себе равных по уровню игры и решили взвалить эту тяжкую ношу на свои мужественные плечи. Играют они действительно технично – я бы назва ла стиль второго альбома прогрессивным дэт-металлом, так как треки отличаются сложной структурой и большим количеством переходов. Особенно удивителен здесь вокал, зачастую переходящий в «волчий вой», и это, пожалуй, является наиболее яркой отличительной чертой группы. У брутального ирландского дуэта, конечно, много собственных фишек, но эта, что называется, лежит на поверхности – вряд ли группу можно спутать с кем-то, благодаря завываниям вокалиста. Он, кстати, мастер на все техники: и к чистому вокалу приближается, и гроулит, и скримит в паре моментов. Что касается инструментальной части, то она в какой-то мере контрастирует с вокалом, являющимся более олдовым и сырым. Инструментал тут отшлифованный и напичканный сэмплами, что особенно легко прослеживается в последнем треке без вокала. Итак, альбом крайне специфичен, но чем-то всё равно понравился, хотя обычно ваш покорный рецензент предпочитает этакий «дэтовый дэт» без всяких там экспериментов. То ли сказался профессионализм музыкантов, которые в любом случае сыграют круто, то ли атмосфера безумия, царящая на альбоме, так цепляет. Исходя из всего вышесказанного, смело рекомендую альбом всем любителям экстремальной музыки – уверена, вам придётся по вкусу.

I reviewed Anti-Catholic avant-garde/progressive death metal band Pedophile Priest’s excellent debut Dark Transgression Of The Soul back in 2016 and have been kind of in love with them ever since. I feel like back then my review didn’t do this band proper justice. I wholeheartedly believe Pedophile Priests are one of the best, most important bands in the modern death metal landscape. Their combination of every style of death metal mixed with black metal mixed with a unique vocal style and the particular things they do with their genre bents results in a band I can 100% safely say NOBODY sounds like. Nobody else even comes close as far as I’m aware (and I listen to a lot of fucking music).
I’ve been eagerly awaiting todays subject of review, Cancer, for some time, wondering if Pedophile Priests would continue on the path they forged on their debut or immediately take a sharp turn to avoid falling into some kind of trap. Dark Transgression… was an album that was almost like listening to lo-fi early ’90s black metal that was covered in old school death and other black metal traditions. I was happy to find that Cancer reveals a band this creative immediately veering in another direction, not content to merely produce a better version of their debut.
Cancer is as avant-grade and progressive as the album before it. The riffs and melodies are just fucking alien, and the drums are consistently not quite in sync or are purposefully disjointed from the riffs to create a sound you can never become comfortable with, and the vomitous demon spew of vocalist Piotr Niemczewski is a vocal tonality you also just won’t hear anywhere else. It hits even harder this time thanks to a much better mix.
Cancer finds itself aiming toward a more chaotic, disjointed sensation that aims to do nothing but disturb, brutalize, and compel to violence and acts of desecration. You can really feel the venom and hatred for religion as well as a proper musical encapsulation of how organized religion in general, in reality, is as horrifying if not more so than any accusations ever leveraged at pagans, atheists, or Satanists.
This album does hit a much groovier tone than its predecessor. The riffing, no less technical than before, has been rearranged to fit a new sonic aesthetic of something that’s mammoth, liturgical almost, and oppressively brutal and unnerving thanks to the band’s love of lo-fi early ’90s black metal synth touches, which add an interesting idiosyncrasy backdropped against the more modern mix and death metal portion of their sound. The introduction of European-style liturgical clean vocals adds a whole new dimension to the band’s sound as well.
I don’t know if I can say much more because you really have to hear this music to believe it. Songs on this record that really embody a feeling of “what the fuck am I listening to and why do I feel the need to beat people to death?” are “Dublin Walking Dead”, “Pedophile Priests”, and “Entropy Of Creatures On Earth” — but honestly the whole album is just a swelling mass of distorted sonic anti-life.
For me, as someone who likes riffy but weird-as-fuck metal, Cancer is one of the best death metal albums of this year, one of the best albums of the year period, and one you owe it to yourself to listen to, if you like unconventionally off-putting metl that’s still brutal as fuck. This band is Pestilence and Akercocke levels of strange and masterful, and one of death metal’s most important newcomers in the current era.
