Noc Lekkich Obyczajów is the title of the debut full length from Polish blackened death metal act Biesy. Noc Lekkich Obyczajów is a concept album about how urban life can isolate and separate you from reality and how it can also permit you to be free and roam wherever you please. Through six tracks, Biesy provides you with an intense, unsettling and dismal sound that is sure to latch on to you from the very beginning. Noc Lekkich Obyczajów is quite a commanding and demanding record for being Biesy’s debut full length, and with that being said, it is nice to see that right from the very beginning they pull out all the stops and pull no punches to present to you a raw and unfiltered release.
Noc Lekkich Obyczajów is a gigantic record, and it doesn’t seem as though Biesy is afraid what so ever to go for broke and lay it all out on the table. These heathens seem to take no shortcuts with this record, and what you hear seems to be Biesy giving it their all, emptying the tank to provide you with an overall captivating and harrowing listen. According to Third Eye Temple, it doesn’t seem as though Biesy even left the room to take breaks from recording, and that certainly shows.
This entire record is filled with harsh, terrorizing and blasting tunes that get your neck snapping in a heart beat. The riffs are sinister and razor sharp and they are only supplemented by hammering drums and throat tearing vocals to create a bleak and bitter sound for you to soak up. However, Biesy doesn’t just provide you with nothing but blasting and tumultuous tunes as they present to you a slower tempo as well that is eerie and just as sinister. Biesy utilizes both the up tempo blastings as well as the haunting down tempo in cohesion to provide you with a unique and completely dismal listen. Never does it seem as though Biesy lurches from their up tempo style to their down tempo style as they sew both together seamlessly creating an unholy and soul sucking sound.
More than just the metallic onslaught though is the poisonous atmosphere that they provide all throughout the record as well. The atmosphere is mystifying, blackened and harsh, surrounding you the very minute that you press play. Noc Lekkich Obyczajów as a whole would be bleak and sinister without the use of such a detrimental atmosphere, but with it, Noc Lekkich Obyczajów is just that much darker and that much more potent.
Overall, Noc Lekkich Obyczajów is an interesting record, one that sucks you in and captivates you. For this being Biesy’s debut it certainly is one hell of a solid record.
Noc Lekkich Obyczajów will be out through Third Eye Temple September 9, 2017.
