Ghost Chants is a twisted beast of an album. The first full-length from Poland’s Outre, its thirty-five-minute duration is a mindtrip of the highest order and a surefire highlight in Poland’s black metal of this decade so far.

The work of drummer Maciej Pelczar is simply stellar, whether in relentless double-bass or rumbling grooves of “Lament”.
