Malthusian - MMXIII - CD

  • Description

    We gave MMXIII a spin, and sure enough, it creeped us the fuck out with its insane overload of evil and uncontrollable rage. The cool thing about this band is that it couldn’t give a shit less about sounding like “trve” black metal, with a very raw, crappy and stripped down sound. Instead, Malthusian have opted for a production quality that yields enormous quantities of destruction and wrath and which derives much of its annihilating potency from the nearby realms of surreal and grotesque technical death metal. In fact, everything in this EP sounds beautifully layered and dense, almost labyrinth-like, and the sound comes out with the intensity and presence of a fucking cataclysm. If you liked the insanely complex and enveloping song structures of more evolved extreme metal bands like Ulcerate and Deathspell Omega, then you will love this shit, as Mathusian as well have opted for a formula that has at its core the primary urge to gobble the listener into an enormous embrace of blackened majesty and throw you into a labyrinth of complete sonic annihilation. This music is not only scary as fuck and extremely violent, but is it also permeated by a greatness and majesty almost impossible to behold. Of course shit gets even more scary and fucked up as the listener progresses, and by the time you reach the final rounds of the horrific opener Wraith///Plague Spore you will have realized that the band has by then mutated, towards the end of the song into a devastating and completely warped death metal band, mimicking the utter chaos and destruction of certain avant-garde death metal bands, especially the Australian ones like Portal, Grave Upheaval, Impetuous Ritual and so on. The ten and half minutes of complete destruction represented by The Mother’s Blade are enough to drive any human to madness; the track is so overbearingly loaded with hate and repulsion for mankind and injected into a completely annihilating super-structure of deformed and vile technical proficiency. By the time the final Hallucinogen comes around, you are on your knees, begging for mercy and crying like a baby. A mercy of course that Malthusian does’t even know what it is, which obviously means that it is not only the EP’s end but also your end. Enjoy and try to survive this thing if you will.
