Malphas is a fairly new band formed in 2012. They released a demo in 2013 and have now released a single to promote their upcoming album, The Conjuring, to be released in early 2015.
Shards of Truth is an interesting track that combines various styles, the main ones being death metal and black metal. Aside from those two well known genres Malphas takes symphonic elements and hints of power metal to define their style. It’s an interesting track that makes me do exactly what it’s supposed to do; grab my interest and make me want to hear more.
Unfortunately we shall have to wait to hear more. If all tracks on The Conjuring are going to have this style and amount of variation and technique in it, then it’s going to be a great listening experience.
