Unio Mystica Maxima
Style: Black Metal
Release date: September 17th 2007

Italian Black Metallers MALFEITOR was born in hell in the unholy year of 2006 consisting of M:Fabban (Aborym) on vocals and bass guitar, Atum (ex Biastema - Kvntvr – Tundra) on drums, and Munholy on guitars. MALFEITOR is not a Fabban’s side project but a 100 % new Black Metal band and they are ready to conquer the world with their skull-crushing, faster than the speed of light Black Metal.


Their full length debut album “Unio Mystica Maxima” contains 9 tracks recorded at the Temple of Noise Studios in Rome. The production is crystal clear and powerful and MALFEITOR must be quite good friends with The Devil because their music could very well have been written by The Devil himself. The guitar runs are faster than the speed of light, and the drumming is so fucking fast that you almost lose your breath. The vocals are as Black as Black can be. Aggressive as hell.


Even though the music is fast and aggressive, MALFEITOR do know how to captivate you and

you can actually hear small pieces of melody once and a while. This brand new release is certainly one of the Blackest and grimmest albums I have stumbled over lately.

Just take a listen to tracks like; “Rex Bestia fera”, In This Place Forever”, the two last

tracks “Dungeon” and the excellent cover version of the MYSTICUM track “Black Magic Mushrooms” and you know what I fucking mean. 


I’m especially fond of track 8, “Dungeon”... this track rules! A monster of a Black Metal track...

Black, aggressive but “catchy” as hell. Among the best tracks you’ll ever hear in extreme Metal. This album is a huge surprise in my book and I’m sure that they have the potential to top this album on their next release.


So if you can’t get your Black Metal fast and aggressive enough go and get this album when it’s

released in September. Turn of the lights... light a few black candles and take a trip with MALFEITOR and The Devil down to the darkened depths of HELL!!!
