Distorted Sound Mag: It’s a brilliant opener that, with it’s sudden tempo changes and varied guitar work makes for a genuinely intense and unpredictable piece of music. The songs closing, ethereal moments bleed seamlessly into Cotard Delusion, another visceral and cacophonous slab of abrasive death metal.
The Metal Wanderlust: Neither Krallice or Cosmic Putrefaction are ‘easily’ definable, so it stands to reason that a collaboration between the two would be a little outside the box as well. And though some comparison is unavoidable, McMaster and Gramaglia as a unit are more straightforwardly Death Metal than Krallice, more Avant-garde than Cosmic Putrefaction, and still manage to be enough of both to please fans of either. To put it another way, if you took both bands and mixed them all up with the likes of Gorguts, Blood Incantation, and Deathspell Omega, you would be on the right track. “Twisting and mind warping,” indeed!
As is too often the case, I discover my all-time favourite [insert genre] band only to find they’ve broken up. And so it is with Malignant Altar, imho the finest osdm act of its kind. Even better than the demo. 10/10. MJ
