Johan Z. : Adhuk is a Polish band who has risen from the ashes of Algor, after a short introduction which is suitably named ‘Calm Is The Beginning’ they set off with decent mid-paced black. It reminds a bit of the early Immortal, rasping vocals, icy ambiance. Every now and then they pick up the pace but they also slow down to keep the atmosphere up. The performance is tight and smooth, the production is raw but clearly audible. I occasionally found myself in the mood to give the muscles in my neck some exercise. They do not do anything new here, but what they do is done very well. Absolutely worth the effort.
