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 and released 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 band’s 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.
