Artrosis

Arguably Poland's best gothic metal band, Artrosis released a string of solid albums starting in 1997 highlighted by strong melodies, original songwriting, and Medeah's enchanting vocals. Essentially their career can be thought of in two halves, the first half consisting of the albums released before 2001's Fetish and the second half consisting of Fetish and the succeeding albums. During the early half their style was rooted in gothic metal, somewhat more upbeat than others in the field, and startingly unique for gothic metal. Starting with Fetish, though, the band took a turn toward electronica, with songs both simpler and more experimental, though Medeah's vocals were still the highlight of the band. They were silent for some time following 2002's Melange, but a new lineup surrounding Medeah emerged, with a new album Con Trust released in 2006. The early albums were sung in Polish, but English versions exist in one form or another, entitled Hidden Dimension, In Nomine Noctis, and In The Flower's Shade (corresponding to their first three albums).
