This is one of those CD’s that stays in your player a month after getting it in the mail. The first thing that blew me away about this CD was the drummer’s double bass: this guy makes his double bass parts sound like fifty machine guns going off at the same time. The overall sound on this one is also five star material all the way. You can hear everything, the way it was meant to be. I don’t care how many people say that bands that are more raw sounding are better. If you want to be able to hear everything going on then grab this. Goatwhore’s, Haunting Curse, is another example of that. The vocals here can match intensity with all the other instruments. On Bloodlust these guys were finding their sound; on Malice they found it and it’s kicking a** and taking names. If this isn’t in your metal collection, you’re missing out big time.
