Malum In Se is a new black metal band from Poland. They formed and released their first demo ...of Death ...of Lurid Soul... last year. If you're a fan of Behemoth then I'm sure you'll love what Malum In Se has to offer.
Even though this is a black metal demo, the production is pretty good. The instruments can be heard clearly but it still has a grim cold touch. The music is spectacularly violent. The blast beats are rampaging. Although they're not as awe-inspiring as those performed by Behemoth drummer Inferno, they're still really impressive. They also make sure to break up the pace by playing some mid-paced rhythms that feature rumbling double bass.
The vocals sound almost exactly like Nergal. They consist of a hoarse growl that exudes absolute hatred. I'm starting to think there's something in Poland's water supply that makes all of their death metal vocalists sound like demented hellspawn. This would also explain why the country produces so much death metal. The guitars are a mix of black metal and death metal. They mainly play tremolo riffs that sound thick and crushing. They're nothing original but the performance is devastating.
This demo might only be two tracks long, but the music is fantastically violent. These guys play some awesome Behemoth worship.
