Gothic Metallers MALACODA released their new EP Crawling Chaos on April 2nd, independently. Today the band has unleashed a bass playthrough for “Deadlights” performed by bassist Zak Stulla. The track is taken from the band’s new EP. Watch below.
Zak comments: “Filming this play through was a lot of fun as this song is one that I can’t wait to play live. The fast rhythms really drive the intensity of the song.“
Malacoda adds – “The song is based on the movie, It’s one of the better horror movie remakes that’s come out recently. We really tried to capture the emotion from the film with this one.” – Lucas Di Mascio
The first single “Crawling Chaos” was unleashed on all streaming services on February 5th. ‘Crawling Chaos’ is the band’s first new release since 2018’s ‘Restless Dreams’ and is a return to the band’s more cinematic and gothic roots as heard on Ritualis Aeterna (2016) as well as a deeper exploration of melodic vocal hooks as heard on their self-titled debut (2014). In the summer of 2019 the band formed a new live lineup and embarked on a small tour around Ontario, including a final show at Toronto’s legendary Rockpile venue before heading into the studio.
With music described as “dark, foreboding and with lyrics to enjoy as well as unsettle.” (Powerplay Mag UK) being a constant in the band’s sound, the next step would be to write a follow up to Restless Dreams. While looking for a drummer, the band recorded throughout the rest of 2019/2020 with friends behind the drum kit.
