Italy's Malauriu have returned with a new recording which continues their raw and old school style of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Morte" which was released by Southern Hell Records.
A very dark, psychedelic and ritualistic intro starts off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are grim yet high pitched black metal s creams along with the music being heavily rooted in the 90's.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody on some of the tracks as well as the songs sounding like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 20 years ago.
Malauriu creates another recording that remains true to their raw and old school style of black metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover Occultism, Death and Human Misery themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Malauriu and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Revenge of The Shadows". 8 out of 10.
