Black metal folk band Varmia release their second album W Ciele Nie on 20th April through Pagan Records.
The band’s name is taken from the historical region of Warmia in Poland, their lyrical content inspired by the area’s pre-Slavic heritage while also using Slavic instruments recorded live.
W Ciele Nie was recorded in a makeshift studio in an old barn, while the vocals and ethnic instruments were recorded live in the forests of Warmia, as this brief video featured here at Ramzine shows.
Varmia were formed in Olsztyn, Poland two years ago by guitarist and vocalist Lasota, and debuted with Z Mar Twych. Alongside Lasota on electric and classical guitar are Ćwiara on bass, backing vocals and classic guitar, Emil on drums and mutli-intrumentalist Piotr on tagelharpa, goat horn, wooden tube, krivula, percussions, backing vocals.
W Ciele Nie features the tracks ‘TAWE’, ‘Biesowisko’, ‘Pokarvis’, ‘Stygma Ziemi’, ‘Ni Ya’, ‘Czeremcha’, ‘Now Sie Rodzi’, ‘Skvarc’ and ‘Bez Pozegnania’.
