Krzak Experience is a musical summit meeting of members of two renowned Polish bands: the blues/jazz group Krzak and the metal formation Sepsis. Krzak violinist Jan Bledowski already had the idea for such a project ten years ago - so the suggestion of the label Metal Mind Productions to try it with the compatriots of Sepsis, who brought the necessary stylistic openness and whose guitarist Dominik Durlik took over the new arrangements of the ten Krzak songs, came just in time. Although "Krzak Experience" promises an exciting fusion of two worlds, some weaknesses can be detected in the implementation. After the courageously performed classic "Krzak" (a Silesian folk tune), it quickly becomes apparent that the musical concept is somewhat monotonous: the ultra-deep riffs in drop-A tuning ("Oriental Xes", "Blue Thunder") wear out after a short time and the two-part themes and solos are constructed according to the same principle. In "Czakus" and "Existence In Possession", on the other hand, softer tones are sometimes used. Why not more often like this?
