Every week in Unearthing the Metal Underground, we take a look at three quality bands that haven't gotten as much exposure yet as they should. This week we'll dig into three rocking outfits all hailing from Croatia.
Croatia isn't typically the first band one thinks of when looking for new bands, but metal is famous for being an international phenomena with amazing groups coming from the least well known places. We'll start off our look at Croatian extreme metal acts with two bands heavily influenced by black metal and one that heads into much more groovy territory.
J.W. Pozoj is an act that mixes the old school black metal vibe with a series of avant-garde and artsy song arrangements.

"It is also a privilege to be a part of code666’s roster that has over time included great names such as Negura Bunget, Ephel Duath, The Axis of Perdition, Fen, Amesoeurs and other bands well respected within the metal community. We hope this will shed new light on the Croatian metal scene and bands that work hard on their music but go by unnoticed by indie or major labels.
"We would also like to take this opportunity to thank both our loyal fans for showing us support throughout the years, and Emiliano Lanzoni from code666 who contacted us and offered us this record deal. More...
