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

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
