It's Mgła alright. Solid song, but more of the same. That is not a complain.

Bring it on. I'm always keen for some more Mgla.

The most consistent black metal band of the last decade, imo. I didn't really like "Groza" at the time, but I've come around. Everything is top notch.

Just another Mgla song. I'll listen to the full album but I have a feeling this just gonna be Exercises part 2. Easy listening black metal.

Mgla is awesome in small doses but to e they are one of those bands I get tired of listening to even just one album from start to end. It starts to feel repetitive fast. This new song seems to indicate this. Listening to it on its own and it sounds great. But we've heard it all before and unless they experiment some on the other tracks I don't think this album will be all that memorable to me either. I feel like the band needs that one member who also wants to push things. They are to comfortable. Like a black metal version of Amon Amarth.

except listening to a new amon amarth single on its own does not sound great. i think vader would be a better comparison, in that they keep releasing high quality easy listenin' stuff without much deviation from their formula

looking forward to the new album, tho' i did much prefer with hearts... over exercises

I like the track. Mgla are very capable musicians and both the songwriting and performance are good. It's a little too similar to Exercises in Futility, which was an amazing album, though. I would have liked them to take a little more risks, be a little more creative.

I'll still listen to the final product though, and well, if it's Exercises Part 2, I know I'll enjoy it anyway. But I hope they don't stale too long.

So I listened to that song and I realized that Misþyrming already released a far superior version of this earlier this year.

I love this, and I would be MORE than happy with Exercises Part 2. Possibly my favourite black metal record of all time. The lyrical themes are on point.

I never understood the obsession for Mgła. It's alright, slightly boring in some areas. Nothing too special or unique, and a lot of bands have done better

To the people are complaining that this is more of the same: did you really think Mgla was going to take the catchy, riffy BM formula that made them so popular and just completely fuck it up and put whatever dumbass progressive songwriting or keyboard wank you want in the mix?

Like most bands that establish their own style, they're slowly evolving and tweaking, which is evident in the new song and to anyone that has actually heard a Mgla album more than a couple of times on youtube. Sorry if that sounds pretentious but holy fucking shit this band is definitely not Amon Amarth. Even Amon Amarth is way less samey than everyone says!

Watch out, guys, you might cut yourself on Osore's edge.

Forum posturing aside, this song is rad. More of the same, but what it's more of is so great.

I love your responds! ;-) It is also amazing that black metal became so diverse, which means that people can easily find particular bands which suit their sensibilities.

As much as I love Mgła, and subjectively you can’t be wrong on your preference, objectively however Mgła hasn’t shaped the black metal genre like any of those albums of the first and second wave so no I’d say it’s not in league with genre defining albums like those listed.

You are right, in a 'genre defining category' they can't measure with now legendary bands, but they have alredy become influental, especially in Poland. (Some people confuse 'genre defining' with 'best/most enjoyable', and this is why they automatically voted for 'true'/raw/lo-fi etc.)
If you reinvent black metal, than what's left? Black steampunk?... 3rd wave BM still sticks to core ingredients that make them recognisably black.

Not all good music need to be genre defining. Mgla aren't even one of my favourite black metal bands, I'm not saying they are better than any of the bands of the list. My point is most classic black metal albums have long been surpassed in terms of quality and songwriting. They are just popular at this point because they were the first bands to do what they do.

This is why I was separating the subjective from the objective. I freaking love Mgła but those albums are ultimately genre defining classics and I don’t think Mgła will have that moment (I’d be happy for them to prove me wrong).

Me too. ;)
You probably can't have revolution in a single genre twice, although BM has very frutile 3rd wave. Mgła leads in melodic BM niche, and I can not ask for more (unless I get bored, which happened with clonal albums of An Autumn for Crippled Children).

Hmmm, I'm not qualified to verify the 1st sentence. I can only say that I prefer 2nd wave to 1st. If it hadn't been so scandalous, who knows what could've happened to Mayhem and black metal in general.

ehhhh i dunno a lot of the shittier "formative" bands back in the 80/90s (like iunno, Goatlord or something) have mostly been filtered out of public consciousness by the metal collective. I get what you're saying, when something created a new style it may be recognized for that as opposed to the actual quality of the music, but I was listening to the Yggdrasill demos by Enslaved the other day and the songwriting and riff quality is memorable for reasons beyond it being one of the first at what it did.

You can cultivate all the mystique and extramusical hype and "pioneers in x genre" hype all you want, but if your musical product doesn't back it up no one will give a shit. If Mayhem had released DMDS without any of the burny burns and stabby stabbys, I think it still would have been quite influential and still listened to to this day. Then again, it's pretty much impossible to imagine that album existing without the context surrounding it, so maybe that's not the best example...

TLDR: Classics are classics for reasons beyond being the first in their respective genre. People actually listen to those albums too, y'know. How else do you explain classic 90s albums having scores of young fans who were born well after their release?

I loved "Exercises in Futility", been one of my most played black metal album for the last year or so (even got a vocalist that sound simular to him for my Enigmatical project). Love the new singel too. What sold me on them is the conviction they deliver, the sometimes unusual drumming and lyrical content. Not suprised they got this big eventhough they are sorta "generic"...

You can cultivate all the mystique and extramusical hype and "pioneers in x genre" hype all you want, but if your musical product doesn't back it up no one will give a shit. If Mayhem had released DMDS without any of the burny burns and stabby stabbys, I think it still would have been quite influential and still listened to to this day. Then again, it's pretty much impossible to imagine that album existing without the context surrounding it, so maybe that's not the best example...

TLDR: Classics are classics for reasons beyond being the first in their respective genre. People actually listen to those albums too, y'know. How else do you explain classic 90s albums having scores of young fans who were born well after their release?

I'm not saying all classics are bad, just that they are blindly revered by some and not all o them are necessarily good. Claiming something isn't as good as those albums because it isn't "genre defining" is like saying a Ferrari isn't a good car because horse carriages exist.

I have no idea how these guys have a career after how close they are to Mikko Aspa came out. Then again, with the amount of people still giving that anti-Semitic whackjob money, this shouldn't surprise me.

It's pretty cool. Better than Groza and With Hearts Toward None, not as good as Exercises in Futility.

Yeah, I wish more bands did it like this.

On my first listen... sounds good so far.

VI is the strongest track by far.

Definitely. Less melodic and faster.

III stands out more to me after the first listen.
