Neolith is a Death/Black metal band from Poland. Neolith’s music could originally be characterized as Death/Doom metal, and later evolved into brutal and dark Death/Black metal with some Thrash metal elements.
Neolith’s beginnings date back to 1991. Their debut album "Igne Natura Renovabitur Integra" (“INRI”) was recorded in 1998 in the Manek Studio (produced by Arek "Malta" Malczewski; Behemoth, Decapitated, Azarath), and was released by Dogma Rec. “INRI” received enthusiastic reviews in the press worldwide, and Neolith subsequently played several concerts in Poland and abroad. The readers of Horna magazine voted the album one of the most important albums in the history of the Polish metal.
Following the release, Neolith’s line up changed and the band started working on the next album, “Immortal“, which was also recorded at the Manek Studio. The material on “Immortal” differed significantly from earlier recordings – it was more brutal and darker, with highly noticeable progressive and technical elements. Following the release of “Immortal” by Flaming Arts Rec. in 2004, Neolith played, among others, tours with Behemoth, Devilyn, Diamanthian, and Maple Cross (Finland), and played on festivals such as Metalmania, Metal Head's Mission (Crimea/Ukraine), Jalometalli (Finland), and Merciless East.
On February 18, 2008, the band’s drummer Fil tragically died. Shortly thereafter, Neolith returned to the studio (Screw Factory) to record “Individual Infernal Idimmu“ with producer Jan Bryt (Vader, Destruction). This new album was released by Psycho Rec. in 2010, and again received very positive reviews. Following the release, the band played a number of concerts, including a tour with Svart Crown (France).
In 2013/2014 Neolith recorded the new album “IZI.IM.KURNU-KI“ (English: “Fire. Wind. Hell“). The album was recorded in three studios and mastered in the Zed Studio by Tomasz Zalewski. The new album will be released by Non Serviam Records in early 2015.
Neolith has a lot of experience playing live, and has played, among others, with bands such as Morbid Angel, Krisiun, Vader, Behemoth, Kat, Lux Occulta, TSA, Moonspell, Hate, Devilyn, Svart Crown, Corruption, Krabathor, Christ Agony, Azarath, Decapitated, Trauma, Disastrous Murmur, Dead Infection, and Pungent Stench.
