Malchus – “Caput Mundi”

Malchus – “Caput Mundi” (Soundmass Records)

Named after the servant who spied on Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane (and got his ear cut off for it lol – Ed), this Polish band play an equally dark yet progressive brand of metal! Taking from the full range of sounds from death like drawls to wailing prog vocals amidst choral harmonies, Malchus brilliantly weave them into powerful dark riffing, flowing folk melodies and technical power drumming on epic songs like ‘My Hypocrisy’, ‘Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam’ and ‘Stripped Of The World’. Besides the excellent mix of brutality and melody, Malchus manage to create a spiritually charged atmosphere with their material that’s hard to ignore, such is the passion in it! I can’t seem to find too much on them (that isn’t in their native Polish) which is a pity cos they are one talented band who are definitely worth checking out!
