The end of times. Kriegsmachine is calling it. Singing about it. Playing to it. In the utmost cold and lifeless manner, Enemy of Man is on full assault mode, relentlessly bringing the end of times throughout.

One cannot mention the immense Polish black metal scene without Kriegsmachine, sharing the drummer (Darkside) and the main man (M.) of Mgła, with the addition of constant band member Destroyer on vocals. However, it is quite different than Mgła and a fresh breath in black metal artistry. Their second full-length Enemy of Man is a quite different and progressive gem, anything but readily accessible, catchy or uplifting. The war machine hits you. Pounds you. On and on. And it takes more than a few listens to explore the magnitude of awesomeness under heavy battery.

The whole album is a gleaming pinnacle of black metal artistry in song writing and execution. The rather deep sound encourages you to turn the volume constantly up. Besides the intro of beautiful chanting in German, this is all drums, guitars, bass and vocals and a progressive masterpiece of black metal. Still, the “progressive” is not a separate part from the “black metal”, as it often is the case. In this sense of integration, Kriegsmachine may be accepted as successful as (the unavoidable comparison) Deathspell Omega. The album contains 6 attention demanding and lengthy songs of equal calibre but the opening track is legendary. Wow Poland, nice going. Keep it coming.
