Maleficus is the third release from Arkansas death metal veterans Vore. Vore has been cranking out their unique blend of crushing, doom-laden death metal since 1994. Vore draws upon death, doom, thrash and traditional metal influences to create an onslaught of brute power and heaviness. Vore's mid-paced rhythmic style is built around strong riffs and songcraft, rather than all out speed, setting them apart from current trends in death metal. Over this soundscape, themes of doom, darkness, conquest and sorcery erupt in a savage vocal attack. 'Vore is the iron fist of the underground!" - Pit Magazine "Vore is a pillar of the American death metal scene pure and simple." - Keith Bergman (Blabbermouth.net) "This Arkansas death metal regime has managed to capture the true spirit of death metal..." - Adrian Bromley (UNRESTRAINED) "Vore exude an aura of titanic power..." - Erik Thomas (Digital Metal.com) "Almost any fan of metal will find solace in the works of Vore" - Metal Maniacs.
