I have said it many times, I will say it once more: Poland is one of my favourite extreme metal scenes and after all these years I find it hard to not to be excited with a Polish release. This time we’ll be dealing with Anima Damnata’s third full – length record, who maintaining their Inquisition profile, released “Nefarious Seed Grows to Bring Forth Supremacy of the Beast” via Godz Ov War Productions and Malignant Voices in October 2017; an album that carries their smallest title so far.

But seriously, Anima Damnata don’t deviate from their character, with their new album going back to the Brutal Death Metal paths they’ve so long paved, with compositions grafted with traditional Black Metal structures. Ten tracks is everything we have, with a total duration of 42 minutes. Anima Damnata guitars balance between simple, classical passages with fast frets – without special techniques, just pure rawness and in passages where chaos is perhaps the best concept word to characterize what’s going on. Continuous is the pummeling of the drums, whose incredible precision I would say basically functions as the backbone on which the rest of this musical creation rests. Excellent work and endurance. Together with the demonic, nihilistic and theatrical atmosphere that is created, it will surely attract the devotees of the extreme sound. Extremely recommended for fans of Deicide, Sarcofago and Morbid Angel.

The album was released in October 2017 in digital format and CD, and in May 2018 it was released on 12 “vinyl. According to the band, music and lyrics were written between 2009 and 2015, while the production was handled by M. (Mgla)
