Poccolus

Ahoy.

Since the forum been quiet lately, figured it's about time to inject some new blood into it.

So, let me introduce

Poccolus
(track 3)
(full album)

An on-again, off-again band from Lithuania who's pedigree is about equally as mismatched as its career, which produced only one full-length among a small string of demos. The tone palette is apt for its time - 90's Enslaved-esque riffs and a cold sound. It feels rather familiar to most who heard a good share of 90's black metal. Yet despite this familiarity, the album has its own life and charm, with interesting and captivating progressions...

I like it. It has a very "big" sound and I like the keys. Overall it's sounding pretty great.

Cool greater than the sum of its parts, for sure! The third track, that I posted at the beginning, has a particularly enchanting, forest-like atmosphere. Really tasteful, atmospheric album. Glad you like it

I've heard them before and I shrugged them off as another act from the 90s. Which they are, obviously, but nothing really struck me as warranting another listen.

Then you made this this thread and I'm listening, and I like it, but it's just going to be the same thing. Good though, definitely good. The keys play so nicely into it. Gotta give credit there.

hahah I guess I'm just a sucker for that 90's sound in general, when it's done properly and not just aping established templates. This album keeps drawing me in and painting forest images in my head, - evoking something that goes beyond the relatively simple compositions. But of course I can't speak for others

It stands out to me more than some other stuff I've heard of the same style/decade, for some reason. I think even though it's similar structurally, it gets the atmosphere spot on. It's done pretty tastefully actually.

From the samples anyway this sounds very good.

In a way it reminds me of Kvist - more than the sum of its parts, even if those parts arent always the most original. [and reminding me of Kvist is only ever a great thing - I love that band]
