influences from Massacre, Angel Dust, Sepultura, Testament, Dark Funeral, Heathen… They toured with the best, played numerous live shows, and will again in near future. Their evolution is interesting but doesn’t choke as it melts nicely. Whatever you like or not those growling voices, the melodies and catchy riffs from Heavy to Thrash will get you to love them. If you never heard of them it is time to get their previous efforts.
Downright Malice is here to stay and to kick your life with good vibes. An album that will mark the world, don’t understand this band is not signed yet. Ten tracks with emotions and power, some keyboards here and there to gently pass the tempos that shred your heart. A taint of rock sometimes, the changes of styles matches each as it is the normal music evolution.
A strong start that kicks the machine that takes you down to another dimension. A must-have, a masterpiece of the year 100/100.
