On January 28, 2022 Hells Headbangers will release the self-titled debut EP from Death Metal three piece MALEFIC THRONE on CD and cassette tape formats. The 12″ vinyl version will follow later in that year. “Malefic Throne” will feature the following tracks: ‘Deciding The Hierarchy’, ‘The Dawn Of The Truth’, ‘A New Hand Upon The Blade’ and ‘Nuclear Winter’ (SODOM cover). You can already check out ‘A New Hand Upon The Blade’ at this location. The previously revealed ‘Deciding The Hierarchy’ can still be streamed over here. MALEFIC THRONE consists of guitarist Gene Palubicki (PERDITION TEMPLE, ANGELCORPSE, BLASPHEMIC CRUELTY), vocalist / bassist Steve Tucker (MORBID ANGEL, WARFATHER) and drummer John Longstreth (ORIGIN, HATE ETERNAL, ex – ANGELCORPSE). Palubicki explains 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 all additional MALEFIC THRONE information please visit www.facebook.com/maleficthrone
