Marcel H. : Hey, already a new album by Poland's black/death combo Pandemonium? Did we first have to wait five years for 'Misanthropy' they now deliver a new one within the year? Oh, wait, it's a re-release of their debut album 'The ancient Catatonia' from 1994. What is different about this version? Actually not much. The sound is the same and it contains exactly the same songs. Only difference being that scans of old interviews from Polish fanzines have now been included in the booklet. All nice and dandy for Polish metallers, but I as a non-Polish speaker/reader but interested party cannot make heads or toes of it. A shame, for it seemed interesting to read those old interviews. Anyone familiar with Pandemonium knows what to expect. Through and through black/death. Given the fact that the debut was released nineteen years ago it was a good idea to re-release it because it is hard to get hold of an original copy nowadays.
