|“Overall, Orisons of Vengeance is yet another excellent release from one of the unsung standard bearers of the true spirit of heavy metal, a spirit dedicated to explosive power but also to musicality and free expression.”|
– Heavy Blog is Heavy
“Border-crashers, thrashers, and still skull-whippingly theatric killers in their riff obssessed exploration of all things heavy and morbid Molten Chains have impressed yet again with this third full-length, admirably evolving into their idiosyncrasy rather than gentrifying their wildest heavy metal craft.”
– Grizzly Butts
“‘Orisons of Vengeance’ has oceans of charm which win you over with each repeated listen, the raised eyebrow becoming the knowing smile and to that end, Molten Chains have to go down as one of the most unique bands around.” – MetalNoise.net
Orisons of Vengeance showcases the band playing to their strengths of speed, technicality and originally to create other-worldly dynamic songs which musically, lyrically, and conceptually tower above their previous output. Ideas that were hinted at in the past are expanded to their fullest, encompassing moments of epic beauty, majesty, and might as well snarling aggression and primal savagery. The album also marks the first concept album for the band, telling a tale of Shakespearean proportions accompanied by a manifold of guitar riffs, solos, and drumming above and beyond the level that fans have come to expect from the band.
Orisons of Vengeance was recorded, mixed, mastered, and co-produced by Thomas Taube at Five Lakes Studios, Bavaria, Germany in August 2021.

MOLTEN CHAINS was formed in 2017 and has released two full-length albums on various cult underground labels from both Europe and the USA. The band has gained a reputation as being one of the most unique bands in the modern heavy metal underground. By creating a sound that draws not only from the greats of the genre but also from the obscure corners of heavy metal, black metal, and avant-garde metal, MOLTEN CHAINS are a band that truly stands alone.

Deathromancer: 6 Strings, 2 Knives, 1 Schrei
Graf Gyula: Strings of 6, an Empress Bewitched
