Marcel H. : Malvento has been going at it for about twenty years now and has been releasing music, at quite a regular basis, for some eighteen years and yet I have never heard of the band and nothing of theirs has been reviewed by Lords Of Metal. There’s a first for everything and so ‘Pneuma’ is our first acquaintance with Malvento. What the Italian combo delivers is quite a quirky form of industrial black. The black is clearly the main part of the sound and the industrial is secondary. It is all quite mid-tempo to quite slow but because of the industrial influences it manages to captivate from start to finish. At the end of the journey you want to revisit it all and you’ll discover new elements in the music. All in all an interesting release.
