Devilish Impressions - Postmortem Whispering Crows (2019)


The amount of quality Polish bands breaking into the Metal scene in the last few years has been outstanding. Today we have Devilish Impressions and their uniquely Melodic/Symphonic Blackened Metal style. Featuring all new members other than founder Quazarre, the band delivers a very promising and short EP, demonstrating their excellent craftsmanship and promise of what is to come.

Starting with the bleak “Dvma”, the band sets a very enigmatic and oppressive mood. The catchy guitar work is perfectly contrasted by a nice variety of vocal styles and tight drumming. We particularly enjoy the creepy mournful slower sections that are highly atmospheric and pretty eerie. The meaty hooks of “Cingvlvm Diaboli”, give a certain Death Metal vibe to this more intense track, filled with Satyricon-esque guitars and solid headbanging passages.

Saving the most hellish track for last, “Interregnvm” pounces at the listener with intense drumming and hellish shrieks. Overall, this EP shows a glimpse into the band’s current and future musical evolution and it is quite promising and engaging. With tons of bands trying to all sound the same, it is refreshing to hear Devilish Impressions forging a path on their own while keeping familiar elements in their craft.
