0.0 Thy Supreme Vomit Kommander, Nicholas von Nuclearpiss | June 22nd 16

Malthusian are a unique band. fresh and yet familiar. theyre not extremely weird or experimental.
their music is cavernous, dragging you into an ancient crypt, an atmosphere similar to many of the
old school death metal bands from the 90's . theyve just found new ways to summon that atmosphere.
their riffs are inventive and original. they pack a lot of creative ideas into their music, and
even the more "normal" moments feel inspired. these "normal" moments are fewer and farther in
between compared to MMXIII, which felt a bit more grounded. both are amazing in their own right.
highly recommended.

3.5 greatAlabaster Jones | July 15th 15

Sounding like an impenetrable cavern with magma oozing from the walls, this Dublin quartet plays some very solid death/doom metal, but with a wonderful black metal aesthetic and atmosphere to it. This EP of theirs may only be three tracks, but they have an average length of about eight minutes, so there's a lot of material to digest here. The whole thing is very consistent, and while there aren't exactly any moments that truly floor the listener, it's still a good listen in and of itself. The production here is the main selling point, as it takes the riffs and turns them into some ugly death/doom trudging. At the very least, this EP makes me interested in what they could do on a full-length, which I'm certainly anticipating.
