Atrocious Filth

Atrocious FilthPolish act Atrocious Filth has announced that its second album OVV will be available in vinyl format via Moans Music and Fabryka Hałasu. This follows a limited local-only run of the LP in the band and label’s home country. 

While the band may be little known in the wider music world, Atrocious Filth’s history goes back to the early 90s and could be considered a hidden gem for aficionados of heavy, pummelling and experimental music. The band was founded in 1991 in Olsztyn, Poland by the late ex-Vader drummer Krzysztof ‘Docent’ Raczkowski, Sławomir ‘Małeg’ Jóźwiak on (bass) and guitarist Andrzej ‘Andzia’ Choromański. the band’s debut album, 100% Jesus, was released in 1994 on cassette and THEN 14 years later on CD. 

Following a nearly 20-year break, the band returned in 2016 with a fresh line-up and a new EP in Moans with a new present-day sound, but continuing the atmosphere created in the early 90s. It took the band another four years to enter the studio and record its second full length album, OVV.

Originally released digitally and on CD in January 2021, OVV has been described as “a powerful album with a pummelling, abrasive and groovy sound but not too intimidating or too abstract”. While comparisons could be made to a mix of genres or bands, Atrocious Filth are said to deliver something new and unique that it is impossible to pinpoint to a particular genre. 

You can listen to OVV via Bandcamp and Spotify, and you can check out the  music video for the track ‘L’, filmed at Olsztyn Puppet Theatre right here at RAMzine.
