Polish based progressive melodic metal band Malchus just checked in with the following:

‘Say what you think, not what they want to hear’ – our brand new track is for all the ‘incorrect’ ones. We’re delighted to announce that “Ur” will be released on October 2. In the next few days we’ll start taking pre-orders for the album, as well as our new T-shirts, at. Turn it up and enjoy!

“The author of the design is Jakub Jas, who has been collaborating with us for many years. He worked with us on the graphic design of the English edition of “Caput Mundi.” This time the “foundation” of the cover is a painting by Lucjan Wędrychowski entitled “Temptation of St. Anthony” (the original is located in the Gallery of 19th Century Polish Art in Sukiennice, Cracow). We are convinced that the work of this outstanding Polish painter perfectly reflects musical content of the album. Desert landscape and climate refer to the theme – leaving Ur towards the spiritual desert in order to deeply get to know ourselves.

The album’s publisher is Nasz Sklep – a company that supports Malchus and works with us since the release of “The Evil House”. “Ur” contains 13 tracks with a total duration of 52:54 min. Full tracklist is given below.

Malchus 2014Roxx Records is very excited to announce their latest release, which we bring to you all the way from Poland. Please join them as we welcome Polish heavy metal band Malchus to the Roxx Records roster. Never ones to be confined to a traditional framework of heavy metal music, Malchus is an action movie for your ears! Hardcore-metal riffs interwoven with melodic transitions, light and dark themes blended together effortlessly across all of the tracks on their brand new Roxx Records debut entitled “The Evil House”. This brand new release brings big drums, big riffs, big hooks and some very catchy metal anthems, with each release this band just gets better and better!

“The Evil House” is a concept album which documents the dark descent of a young frustrated Pole’s soul, and the lyrics relate to his spiritual journey, while focusing on his everyday struggles against adversity. Malchus have been torch bearers for the Polish heavy metal music scene for the last 11 years, but on this, their latest and 4th full length release, we get the band’s first album recorded completely in the English language.  Continue reading »

Malchus Evil HousePolish based progressive melodic metal band Malchus have released a promo video for their upcoming album, “The Evil House”, an English version of “Dom zły”. (They are looking for a label). The Polish version of “Dom Zły” has been released on Dec. 15th. 2014. The song ‘Creed’ can be streamed below.

The new album of Malchus is full of powerful sounds with no less powerful lyrics. ‘I tried to reflect that heavy sound and band’s message graphically. Due to Radosław‘s suggestion the foreground figure on the cover is a XVI-th century physician dressed up in a protective gown worn during the times of plague, also known as ‘black death’. The theme of long-forgotten epidemics had been repeatedly used by metal musicians through lyrics or graphics. As for Malchus, we have decided to use this theme as a metaphore for modern times, modern world. This time the plague that’s eating our earthly tabernacle is not the ‘black death’ itself but an almost omnipresent evil. The seven deadly sins have been written on “The Evil House‘s” floor in latin – superbia, avaritia, luxuries, invidia, gula, ira and acedia, as they are the basis for all that’s evil. The physician trying to fight off the plague spread by rats is an allegory of a man who opposes the pressure of modern world propaganda, mass-media – ‘how to live, what’s good and what’s evil, what’s true and what’s a lie.
