XUL- Malignance review


By Philip Coon

Looking to breakout in Canada, local black metal band XUL have released their first full-length album Malignance upon the masses, released June 2012.

XUL have a decent sound that will appeal to fans of black/death metal.  Hard-hitting and brutal, Malignance is intense and that intensity does not let up until the very last song.

The two best songs on the album are “Battlestorm” which has a skull crushing sound, with awesome guitar riffs. The other, “Winter’s Reign” has no lyrics, but a chilling gothic sound.

Rating: 7/10
