Jesus Ain't In Poland - No Man's Land (2018)

Jesus Ain't In Poland name may seem a little peculiar, but don't let that get in the way of their crushing sound, because they are the shit! JAIP combine elements of Grind, OSDM, and Sludge/Doom to craft the epic dirge "No Man's Land". You might want to make some time for this one, since it clocks in at over an hour in length, but it's certainly something you won't regret. The music is definitely heavy as fuck, but as you progress through the album, you'll realize there are many peaks and valleys, as well as highs and lows. I don't mean this in an atmospheric way either (well maybe slightly towards the end it gets that way). This is pretty much a fucking steamrolling that either goes flying down a hill crushing humans, and pets and what not, or they slow down and maybe play something that slays in a totally death/doom sludgy way, or they play something a little more melodic while maintaining a certain level of intensity and brutality.
As far as production goes this is pretty slick but in an Extreme Metal kind of way. The strings are deep, with a nice thick detuned sound. The drums on this are pretty fucking heavy, especially on the kick and toms. Nice use of blasts and double kick on this as well. It's not over done, and seems to be used for the right amount of time to not get in the way of a nice groove when it's presented. The vocals are spot on. It's like a pitch perfect death growl that really sounds great over this assortment of tunes. Overall, this is really good, and definitely worth your time. Highly Recommended! Cheers! -Samir
