Existing at the forefront of the Polish black metal movement, Blaze Of Perdition return in 2024 with their sixth full-length, Upharsin – a product of the band members environments and is somehow a step back to a more orthodox approach of black metal.

Having their previous album The Harrowing Of Hearts released right before the beginning of a global pandemic was a setback for Blaze Of Perdition since all touring plans on both sides of the pond were reduced to ash and the band consquently went on some sort of hiatus. Blaze Of Perdition still played a handful of shows from time to time but mainmen S. and XCIII decided to mainly focus on their other bands Mānbryne and Piołun respectively for a while.

Musically, Upharsin is a step back from the somewhat unusual direction the band followed on The Harrowing of Hearts. A rather dark and pessimistic tone is reflected by appropriately opressive music. Haunting and melancholic melodies rooted in traditional black metal meet unforgiving blastbeats and solemn marches, while emotional yet feral vocals aim to bring a proper sense of rage and disgust.
