Malakhim are a band from Sweden that plays an orthodox form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 demo which was re-issued on 12 inch mlp, and mcd by Iron Bonehead Productions.
Tremolo picking and melodic riffing starts off the demo along with the music speeding up and adding in blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and a few seconds later while the vocals are mostly angry black metal screams as well as the music being heavily rooted in the 90's.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the vocals also mixing in a grim yet semi melodic tone at times and you can also h ear some elements of death metal in the guitar riffing and as the demo progresses a more modern style of orthodox black metal can be heard.
Malakhim plays a style of orthodox black metal that is very raw, dark and traditional sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover the powers of The Beyond.
In my opinion Malakhim are a very great sounding orthodox black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Mass Of Flesh". 8 out of 10.
