Malsten was formed in 2018 with the purpose of creating conceptually driven slow and heavy doom music. Blending elements from many dark corners within as well as beyond the genres of metal, the music of Malsten is innovative and thought-provoking – both musically and lyrically. The musical palette is inspired by the heavy riffage of both contemporary and past doom metal. There is also a noticeable grounding in the heavier Swedish metal scene, with its atonal twists and atmospheric qualities. Vocally and lyrically, Malsten delivers conceptual narration reminiscent of the dark theatrical sides of the metal and ambient genres. Indeed, Malsten is nothing like your everyday dope-groovy doom band. But fear not, worshippers of the FUZZ! The heavy, mountain-melting riffs are there, and they are heavier than anywhere else. But with Malsten, you’re always entitled to expect more. In fact, Malsten’s music challenges you to do just that. Crave more! More horror, more gore, MORE DOOM!
