Movie Reviews

Great goth metal!!
Steven Scharmer | Clearwater, FL United States | 01/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Artrosis is/was an outstanding goth metal band from Poland. This 2002 concert was recorded at the height of their career.

Heavenly female vocals by the pretty Medeah. Her delivery is not operatic, instead using some "chanting" to add to her alto-pitched singing. Heavy duty guitars mix with moody synths. Songs are very interesting. Progressive without being technical. Artrosis sounds like no one else, very fresh. More uptempo than most goth metal. No male vocals. Drumming is programmed, but that sounds much more boring than it really is, thanks to the genius of synth player/songwriter Maciej.

I think the no drummer thing always held Artrosis back as far as popularity. Also, their English is limited. They write in Polish. Each album has 2 releases, one Polish, one English. Someone else always translates, and Medeah doesn't have the confident delivery as when singing in her native tongue. Artrosis also never got any promotion outside of Poland.

This release has songs sung in Polish.

There are loads of great extras on this well-produced DVD.

I highly recommend their first 3 albums, Hidden Dimension, In Nomine Noctis, and In The Flowers' Shade. Go to soniccathedral dot com, lasercd dot com, or gemm dot com for those."
