Soundmass is pleased to announce the signing of melodic/progressive metal band Malchus.

Formed in May 2004 and hailing from Przeworsk, Poland, Malchus was founded by Radoslaw Solek (Radii), who also shares vocal duties with Illluminandi. Having recorded 4 demos and played a lot of local shows over the years, the band decided it was finally time to enter the studio to record and “Didymos” is the result.

It is hard to label the style of Malchus. Their music is a union of heavy guitar sounds and technical keyboard play. Their compositions are characterized by their interesting structure and form. For an idea of what to expect from Malchus, imagine melding Opeth and Dream Theater.

With vocal help from Illuminandi vocalist/guitarist Jan Trębacz, be on the lookout for “Didymos” to hit around the end of the year. In the meantime, visit the Malchus MySpace and check out “All The Glory (Wszelka Chwata)” and “Resurrection”: www.myspace.com/malchus777

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
