(factory delay new release date 6/18)
NoLifeTilMetal Records is very excited to be unveiling the debut release from Southern California’s very own Madrost. NoLifeTilMetal Records is proud to announce the CD and vinyl re-issue of the 2012 debut "Maleficent" from Southern California based progressive thrash metal band Madrost.
Founded in the summer of 2007, Madrost is a progressive death thrash act focused on precision songwriting and an energetic diverse approach to their sound. Influenced by the likes of Metal Church, Death, ELP, Believer, Coroner, Mekong Delta and Iron Maiden, the band has transformed from a straight-forward thrash/death style to incorporating a wide range of other instruments and time signatures into their own unique sound and style. Madrost signed with NoLifeTilMetal Records in 2020 to release their fourth album, the progressive thrash masterpiece "Charring The Rotting Earth."
“Maleficent” was initially released in 2012 as an independent CD-R release and has been out of print and out of circulation for years. Unlike the bands more recent releases, "Maleficent" is a more straight-forward thrash/death metal album. The album featured furious riffs, blistering speed, shredding guitar solos and vicious, biting vocals.
Both the vinyl and CD re-issues will be remastered by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound). The CD will feature an expanded booklet and an exclusive bonus track. This vinyl will also be limited to only 100 copies on 180g black vinyl, and the CD is a jewel case edition with 8 page booklet limited to a 300 piece pressing.
