On the night of All Saint's Day, when the veil between this world and the land of the dead is at its thinnest, In Twilight's Embrace release their second album Lawa. Sung entirely in Polish the album embraces the Polish beliefs in the supernatural and the spirit realm. Inspired by the poem Dziady” ("Forefathers' Eve") by Adam Mickiewicz and its psychedelic movie rendition, In Twilight's Embrace embrace the traditions and beliefs of their culture.

"Our nation is like lava. On the top it is hard and hideous, but its
internal fire cannot be extinguished even in one hundred years of
coldness. So let's spit on the crust and go down, to the
profundity!"
(taken from "Dziady" by Adam Mickiewicz)

 

As I am not well versed in the Polish dialect I review this album based on the feeling it fosters. I could describe it as a mix of black metal and speed metal and what I picture is a group of people gathered in the cemetery of their dead loved ones, perhaps beseeching them for advice, answers and closures. Communication with the dead is as ancient a tradition as any and when it is set to music, it becomes all that more universal, even across language barriers. Perhaps the music hints that the world of the living is even more tortuous than that of the deceased. A great addition to an ever growing black metal collection.
