If you're looking for an example of how Polish death metal continues to evolve, I submit Krakow's Dormant Ordeal. The long-running trio don't scrimp on the speed or blastbeats that their scene is known for, but include plenty of discordance and eerie riffing that plants their sound in the new millenium.

I spoke with Dormant Ordeal guitarist/bassist/lyricist Maciek Nieścioruk about how the band went from drummer Radek's bedroom project to a full band, and how classical music informs his musical arrangements. We also talked about the writing and recording of Dormant Ordeal's latest album, The Grand Scheme Of Things, and the stories behind some of their enigmatic song titles.

My thanks to Maciek for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
