Poland's Malchus set to release black death-themed album

THE POLISH metal band Malchus will soon be releasing their new album 'The Evil House'. Said the band's Pawel Walkowiak, "Due to Radosław's suggestion, the foreground figure on the cover is a 16th century physician dressed up in a protective gown worn during the times of plague, also known as the black death. The theme of long-forgotten epidemics had been repeatedly used by metal musicians through lyrics or graphics. As for Malchus, we have decided to use this theme as a metaphore for modern times, modern world. This time the plague that's eating our earthly tabernacle is not the black death itself but an almost omnipresent evil. The seven deadly sins have been written on 'The Evil House's' floor in Latin - superbia, avaritia, luxuries, invidia, gula, ira and acedia, as they are the basis for all that's evil." CR
