MAAHES – “Reincarnation”
CD | DIGITAL
Black Metal from Germany
A stone chamber. The smell of mould, sand and age. Darkness, torches, fading artwork on the walls. Steps lead deeper into the stone. 3000 km away from the Valley of the Kings, in 2015 a band has set the task to merge the atmosphere of ancient Egypt into classic black metal. Under the banner of the lion-headed god MAAHES (the lord of darkness, winds and slaughter) they stepped out of the catacombs to offer “Reincarnation”, a conceptual album where the main character escapes from the captivity of the ancient Egyptian underworld and resurrects successfully at the end.
With this album, Maahes fight their way through a quarter of a century of extreme music history, gathering influences from classic albums such as “Storm of the Light’s Bane”, “Deathcult Armageddon”, “At the Heart of Winter” or “God Hates Us All”, with the band invading the Death Metal and Heavy Metal realms in order to create its ideas without any barriers.
“Reincarnation” was produced in 2018 and was recorded in different studios, including Studio Wustrack (a.o. Vroudenspil). Drum recordings, mix and mastering took place under the direction of Florian Dammasch at “Nightside Audio” in Solingen (a.o. Eïs, Ash Of Ashes). The debut is completed by the artwork of Brazilian artist Caio Caldas/Cadiesart (Dragonforce, Doro, a.o.).
