RockmusicRaider - Malice Divine - Self-Titled - Album Cover

Yet another one-man show. Right? Usually, those jacks of all trades risk ending up in a mess of tinny guitars and moldy vocals. It is a fucking revelation that some of them actually cut it, and with kudos to boot. But often you get that quagmire of one who wants to nail it by himself, but it never quite sounds right.

Malice Divine hovered around our radar for a long time, and way beyond the self-titled album’s release date. That’s one of those records of the ‘me-too’ kind. It constantly pops up … [...] Click to raid more!

This ain’t no wine that somehow changes. So, let’s call it reviewer’s delusion for all it’s worth.

Yeeha! Here we go again.

It feels like we just covered the newest piece of Bewitcher with their idea of Speed Metal1) a few minutes ago. And now we are at it again. Only this time, all this metal goodness more feels like some rough-hewn crazy mix of overheated Power Metal and the speedier realms of Heavy Metal.

A piece that makes you want to strap on some body armor. Or – at least – makes you leap for that war axe that rusted away in the corner. Because goblins and monsters … [...] Click to raid more!
