Purity Through Fire sets October 30th as the international release date for a brand-new demo from Germany’s SLAGMARK, Radical Malice, on digipack CD format. It shall be sold at a special price of 6.66 Euros.
Already this past April, SLAGMARK made their bolt-from-the-blue debut with the full-length Purging Sacred Soils via Purity Through Fire. Although a brand-new entity, SLAGMARK feature members of Sarkrista and Totenwache. As such, the brand play pure and proud BLACK METAL of the old ‘n’ cold variety. Trace elements of classic Finnish-style black metal ran rampant across Purging Sacred Soils – a cryogenic fire, steeped in filth and fury as it is hateful – which is not surprising given the Sarkrista connection, they a band of transplanted Finns. And now they carry that fire forward with a swift ‘n’ decisive demo aptly titled Radical Malice. No changes nor compromises have been made here: this is 100% black metalled classicism steeped in the spirit of the 1990s, no more but definitely no less! The results are rawer but refined, and yet more new fuel to the fire that stokes the classic Finnish/German alliance has been added by SLAGMARK, who are likely working in their armory on more weapons of righteous destruction & raging darkness. But only time shall tell…until then, face their Radical Malice!
