Malokarpatan - Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada (2019)


Hailing from Slovakia, Malokarpatan delivers a re-issue of their 2018 EP via Sun & Moon Records. While we don’t really subscribe to the hype behind the band, this 7” presents us two conceptually related tracks that continue to push the boundaries of the genre, as the band has set to do since their origins a few years ago.

The release opens with an instrumental/atmospheric side A track that sets a very sinister and engaging mood. Not too much else to talk about here. Side B gives us a proper old-school Black Metal piece, sounding like Master’s Hammer and Tormentor, but with thicker and more punishing atmosphere. The riffing and vocal’s give this track a very raw and punishing vibe, thanks to the contrasting underlying melodic nature of the track.

As a whole this 7” is an good insight into the band’s unique and engaging sound, and a definite must-have for music collectors. For old-school BM bands this band might be great, but for people that like stuff a bit craftier and more complex, this is definitely the wrong release.
