Bands guitar player, Huzar, comments on the content of new release: Our new album is quite diverse. We tried to combine technically advanced parts with some kind of simplicity and directness to get better contrast and avoid being monotonous. There are also some solutions that put more space into music just to step aside for a moment from death metal standards. There is also lots of melodies , but the album is still uncompromising. Sacrilege Of Humanity doesnt promote hate, but is rather cumulating some form of cosmic energy flowing from minds of five people. We are aware that everything surrounding us is cosmic, and were just a small part of it
Sacrilege Of Humanity is technical, brutal death metal inspired by such genre leaders as Nile, Morbid Angel, Decapitated or Immolation. Flawless sound of second Calm Hatchery is guaranteed by Hertz Studio, Bialystok where the album was recorded and supervised by Wiesławscy Bros (Behemoth, Vader, Hate).
