Metal Mind Productions released in late March the debut album by the Polish outfit Krzak Experience. Heavy riffs, brilliant violin parts and guitar solos make their self-titled album a must-have for all fans of music in the vein of Apocalyptica. The first track promoting the album, “Kattowitz” is still available to stream on Metal Mind Productions’ official channel on YouTube in THIS location.
Two musicians from the Polish band Krzak – Jan Błędowski and Leszek Winder, previously associated only with blues music – joined forces with Rafał Cioroń, Dominik Durlik and Piotr Wierzba from the metal band Sepsis and, under the name of Krzak Experience, created a new quality in music. Their self-titled debut album is heavy, intriguing and full of mutual inspirations. As Błędowski and Winder say, they are not afraid to abandon the safe musical paths they usually follow.
Leszek Winder: “I was very skeptic until the first rehearsal. I wasn’t so sure until I’ve heard these young guys play, and the music that was to become Krzak Experience. Once that happened, I put my worries away, and quickly realized that something very special was unfolding in front of me. The meeting between a blues-rock guitar player and a violin player, with a metal band was a risky thing at first, but it turned into something very artistic.”

“Krzak Experience” includes 10 tracks, some of them constituting new, completely re-arranged versions of songs taken from Krzak’s discography. It’s an album that will appeal to fans of such bands as Fear Factory and Testament, but also to those of blues music.
