Palubicki explained the genesis of the band as follows: “MALEFIC THRONE was conceived over conversations and shared ideas among the three of us since around summer of 2020, deep in the early pandemic upheaval, while everyone was – and has been – in limbo for live shows / tours etc. We hit on the idea of just going for it, writing some furious Death Metal material with the three of us, and seeing what would happen. Given who the band members are, it is surely clear the nature of what this is all about. We originally considered just doing an independently released demo, but we approached Hells Headbangers to see if they were interested in handling the debut EP release. They agreed, and onward it goes!” For regular updates make sure to follow MALEFIC THRONE at www.facebook.com/maleficthrone
