Malacath are a 1 man band from New Hampshire that plays an atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2013 ep "Songs For The Destitute".
"The Other" begins with some soft acoustic guitar playing that utilizes both finger picking and full chords and spoken word parts as well as serving as an intro for the ep.
"A Song For The Destitute (Solace II)" begins with some heavy atmospheric guitar riffs, background keyboards, drum beats and high pitched black metal screams that utilize some depressive elements and after awhile the synths start taking over the song along with some thunder sounds and also brings in some acoustic guitars and clean singing and a couple of minutes alter the music gets heavy again and also brings in some melodic guitar riffing as well as some deep demonic growls while mostly focusing more on black metal vocals.
"A Cold And Unyielding Surface Of Polished Glass" begins with some acoustic guitar playing and the sounds of rain and thunder and after awhile the spoken word parts make their presence known in the song
Song lyrics cover dark, depressive and H.P Lovecraft themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the main song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Malacath are a very great sounding depressive and atmospheric black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Song For The Destitute (Solace II)". RECOMMENDED BUY.
