A blues album with an alternative twist. Lyrically inspired by life, failure and celtic mythology.
»Jaded Bored Wasted And Sick« opens with a Nick Cave style dirge about apathy leading to a psych rock jam. Out of this moves to »Headhunter«, a swampy juke joint jam with allusions to Braveheart style story of invaders and protecting ones space and home. »Macabre Times« is a report on the way the world around me seems. »Witch Is The Whip«, a story of revenge, empowerment and taking back what was stolen. »Angel Of Death«, a cover of the Hank Williams classic is a theatrical take on a traditional song about living with yourself and the inevitable. »HGWK« is a story that again alludes to Celtic Mythology. A story about a witch looking to bring hell to earth and an individuals unfortunate encounter with the “hell spawn”. If you find human remains without its jaw bone, it was removed to prevent them from hexing from the grave. »Celise« is a moody track about yearning and unrequited love.
Malkasian is a dark, moody, rock and roll ensemble from Denver,Colorado. Compelled by the energy and subversive nature of heavier andalternative music like The Smashing Pumpkins, Danzig as well as alternative blues like The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Captain Beefheart and Morphine their self-titled debut was released through Dead Industry Records in 2014 and has since released one full-length and two EPs. Themes like expectations, depression, fear, yearning, love and frustration define these records and sound that channel their uniqueblend of heavy blues and dark alternative music.
