Malchus hails from Poland and they have prior to this release done four
demos and played a lot of local shows. "Didymos" shows a band that tries to
unite heavy guitar sounds with technical keyboard playing, sort of combining
Dream Theater with Opeth, and only with some success.
writing and technical level is not quite where you would expect a new, recording
band to be and they do try to bring something unexpected to the platter without
much success. But in their defence everything is totally ruined by a horrible
and poor production, which makes it very hard for the listener to pick things
Malchus has a long way to go, everything needs to take a step or two up,
beginning with a better production and better vocals, which sound forced and
uneven. I am pretty convinced the picky metal community won't take notice of
them until that happens...
