Malleus - Storm of Witchcraft LP
Like a relic from a lost time, Storm of Witchcraft rages forward on a rusty 'n' crusty axis of Hellhammer, debut-era Bathory, and early Celtic Frost. However familiar it may sound on paper - and in execution, more so - MALLEUS nevertheless evince an engaging elan that's equal parts devilish fun and all-out evil, splitting the difference between alcoholocaustic gallop and dread-inducing downtempos. 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!
