Quote from label: "Mallorcan post-sludge demolition corp MARASME present their most recent album 'Malsons'. Their Mediterranean roots give an interesting skew to their Cult Of Luna vocal worship and Year Of No Light inflected riffing, music in this genre tends to feel cold, MARASME show that it is possible to feel isolated even under the blazing sun!
'Malsons' in Catalan means 'Nightmare', and this is explored thoroughly by the band on this release, though the dynamics of the record may shift, the tone remains heavy throughout and what clean interludes that exist are there only to underline the next crashing chunk of riff, like the pattering of rain just before the thunderclap.
The album ends on a high, almost uplifting riff on the track 'Ruines', presumably signalling the glimmer of hope on waking from the darkness.
A churning riff nightmare, this one will have post-whatever, sludge and even metal and crust fans nodding their heads".
