Czort - _Waiting For_
by: Alvin Wee (5 out of 5)
Proving that Poland isn't just about deluded pagan warriors and unlistenable NS black metal projects, Czort play a bold mix of brutal thrash and traditional heavy metal on their second demo tape. Opening with the infectious metal anthem "This What Is the Best", the band then charges into all-out assault mode on "Stony Joke". Musicianship is impressively tight for a demo band, and the blazing solos littering the songs prove the band's musicianship isn't something to laugh about. The outstanding "Magic Embrace" is remarkably atmospheric and intense at the same time, having got the old German technique down pat, and I'm not exaggerating when I say it stands alongside the work of old heroes like Deathrow or Necronomicon. Almost every track is unique and exciting, and by the end of the tape, I'm thoroughly convinced of the band's competence. Good thrash like this doesn't turn up everyday, and with jokes like Machine Head tarnishing the once-formidable Bay Area, Czort certainly deserve a shove in the right direction in the form of a label deal. The band, now called Chort, is currently working on a new demo, so drop them a line at -- you won't regret it.
