Malphas are a band from Switzerland that plays a very raw form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Occult Propaganda" which was released by BMTC Records.
Ritualistic sounds and demonic chanting starts off the ep bringing in an evil atmosphere and after a couple of minutes the music gores into a very fast, raw and melodic black metal direction as well as introducing high pitched screams and blast beats to the recording and the music also brings in a very heavy musical style.
Throughout the 3 songs you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along wit h a lot of the riffs bringing in a 90's Swedish influenced black metal sound at times and you can also hear a small amount of clean playing in one of the tracks and the solos and leads also stick to a very melodic musical direction.\ along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of growls and you can also hear a small amount of clean playing on the last track.
Malphas plays a style of black metal that is very raw and melodic and brings in a 90's Swedish feeling quite a bit while also being a bit different than that style, the production sounds very raw yet heavy and powerful at the same time while the lyrics cover left hand path and occultism themes.
In my opinion Malphas are a very great sounding raw and melodic occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Occult Propaganda". 8 out of 10.
