Malignant Altar – Retribution of Jealous Gods

Release date: 22 March, 2019

Label: Maggot Stomp

Release type: Demo

Best track: Nephilim Burial

On the surface, a straight Old School Death Metal release with simple meaty riffs reminiscent of Obituary and Incantation, at times almost akin to Caveman DM.

Malignant Altar hide a slithering, lovecraftian and “doomy” ethos that brings them closer to Blood Incantation and Vastum.
A skillful (and limited) use of synths really adds to the dimension of this release.

The result is a claustrophobic ritual sacrifice to the Ancients.
