Malämmar* has created a sonic monument, primitive and sulfurous. Six instrumental tracks where an epic and old picture, laden with iron and copper, myths and walls, battles and prisoners prevails. A heavy cadence, overwhelming, unsettling and war traverses the howl LP. There are no hymns because there are no celebrations. The themes are litanies that offer landscapes where the ruins of fortresses appears in the distance. Only ruins.
The tracks are untitled because they are part of a single piece, an absolute statement of musical rawness and aesthetics. There is no place for anything beautiful, nothing hopeful, a few sunrises and almost no sunset. Only echoes of footsteps on the land that have left behind an empire and desires to conquer another. Hunger and thirst. Malämmar is the music that Hannibal would have chosen for the campaign against Rome in which crossed the Pyrenees and the Alps with fifty thousand soldiers and forty elephants. Carthaginian relentless revenge.
Malämmar is an instrumental trio and post-metal sludge born in Barcelona Xavi formed by guitar, bass
and Victor Guillem on drums (also author of the cover). Their influences come from bands like Conan, Cough, Black Pyramid, Bongriper or Russian Circles. Debuting with this LP released by the Belgian label

The origins date back to 2011, but it was not until 2015 when the project became a reality.
