MAJALIS “Cathodic Black”

”Cathodic Black”
I don’t know why but for some reason the first thing I thought of when I saw this band’s name was the Swedish armed forces. How strange one’s mind can work. And as always I know next to nothing about this band. And as always that is part of the charm of doing this. Getting to know stuff that you didn’t know before. The promo shots that came with this digital file have the band standing in the shadow looking very mysterious. Sound wise this makes me lean towards the Cult Of Luna side of things mixed with a touch of funeral doom. You know the sound I’m after? The really dark, sad one that is almost suicidal in its nature. This isn’t the kind of album you put on at a party, unless you have a doomsday cult and you are about to commit collective suicide (not recommended by the way). This is some seriously heavy stuff. I like it. Anders Ekdahl
