AUDIO: Maledictis – “Maledictis”
Symphonic metal group Maledictis have their debut EP out. The name means “doomed” in Latin, which is a keystone theme in their work. As you could imagine, their lyrics heavily touch on human greed and civilization’s gradual decay as a result. Wind instruments such as trumpet, French horn, tuba, clarinet, and flutes accompany cello and viola in addition to conventional metal instrumentation. Vocalists Mariangela Demurtas and J. Jacques make features; there’s a whole choir to carry gothic harmonies as well. As the late stages of capitalism have unfolded through society, Maledictis tell us exactly how things go from here. We hope to hear more from them in the future.
