Malleus - Storm of Witchcraft
Like a relic from a lost time, Storm of Witchcraft rages forward on an axis of Hellhammer, debut-era Bathory, and early Celtic Frost. However familiar it may sound on paper and in execution, MALLEUS nevertheless evoke an atmosphere that's equal parts drivingly serious and all-out evil, splitting the difference between alcoholocaustic gallop and dread-inducing down tempos. And it's aptly titled, too: Storm of Witchcraft possesses that ancient, old-world aura that puts this safely beyond simple “party music.” No matter how you choose to process it, Storm of Witchcraft is a poisonous first strike for MALLEUS!"
