Abstrakt is a band from Poland. At New Year Day 2015, Abstrakt released their debut album (cd) Limbosis.

 

 

"What’s the risk of creating demanding and specific music? You should be aware there are some limitations and hidden dangers involved in the process. After listening 26 seconds of “that kind of music”, statistical person either bursts into laughter, bursts into tears, faints or becomes deaf and toughest local pigeons fly in panic. After one month, the area around rehearsal room resembles Chernobyl. Imagine then the damage done to your brain….

But still, people create “this kind of music”. What’s the reason behind it, what for? The answer is simple – for those people who after listening to the album, will groan with delight, their bodies will be attacked with goosebumps all over again and neurons will work at top gear. Ladies and gentlemen – LIMBOSIS received the highest note from Półka z Winylami! And the review saying “THE BEST PROGRESSIVE, DEBUT CONCEPT ALBUM OF THE LAST YEARS”! And yes, we live for moments like these! Grzegorz Bryk – thanks a million!
You can read the whole review “here”, however it’s in Polish only, so if you feel like learning this fantastic language or want to give Google Translate a try, please do so :)"

Yes, and cleared. You could write a bio for the band since you are so keen in their addition - this would speed up the addition process Thumbs Up

Here you are:

Abstrakt was formed in August, 2010 in Poznan (Poland) by students Łukasz Simiński (drumms), Michał Fiałka (guitar) and Jakub Puszyński (bass). The core trio cooperated with Radek Dominiak (keyboard), Dominik Kliche (vocal) and Maciej Dados (keyboard).

Few months of collaboration resulted with over 40 minutes of music. The band released its first demo "“Virtual Extended Play"” in July, 2011. It was also the time of their first live performances and even more intensified work on the second mini-album "“Virtual Extended Play II"”, which was released in 2012.

Another important chapter in band’s life commenced in January, 2013 when Krzysztof Podsiadło – new vocalist - joined Abstrakt and the core team became a quartet. Despite of the band’s instrumental roots and attitude towards music, with this decision they hit a bull’s eye. Krzysztof’s distinctive and unique singing style highlighted Abstrakt’s uncommon compositions and armed the music with the content and storyline.

At the beginning of 2015 the band released debut concept album "“Limbosis"”. The album got a very positive response, earned high notes and good reviews from polish and foreign music portals, communities and magazines. The band also appeared in numerous radio broadcasts around Europe & Canada. “Limbosis” got the status of the album of the week from Afera radio, appeared on Top 12 Posen Dozen hit chart and was recognized as “the best debut album of recent years” (G. Bryk, “ Guitarist Magazine”, note 10/10)

Also, in 2015 Maciej Dados – outstanding keyboardist, who appeared in “"Limbosis"” as a guest – re-joined the band and became the fifth member.
