"The EP's last track 'Sunless And Forgotten' is nothing
short of a masterpiece… Brilliant vocals and amazing
instrumentals the EP closes with some of the finest
guitar work I've heard in a long time."

"Metal is a term that is thrown around a lot these days.
But don't mistake us for just throwing these guys onto a pile.
In fact we want to save them from it... Malum Sky come
with a progressive spine and are easily one to watch."

2016 has seen Malum Sky discover a harder hitting sound with the addition of new vocalist Ben, showcasing new material at gigs on the band's growing schedule of dates.
In spring 2017 new self produced single & video 'Eye Above'
was released to more critical acclaim.

"A mini-masterpiece"  -  Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales (2017)

"A hammerjack of a cut... Ideally showcases the band's increased
diversity and imposing prowess" - (2017)

Backed up by an army of dedicated followers and a flourishing music
scene in their home town of Cardiff, Malum Sky won the South Wales
regional finals
of the 'Bloodstock - Metal to the Masses' competition
in June 2017. This earned the band a well deserved place at
Bloodstock Open Air 2017 on the New Blood Stage.

Performing on the Saturday afternoon to stiff competition
from the main stage, the band had filled an initially sparse
tent by the end of their 30min set.

"...a very entertaining slab of prog metal. Hopefully these Welshmen will get a similar
deal to Ramage Inc. last year and be invited back to open up the Thursday.
They definitely deserve to be seen by a larger crowd. [7.5]

 The second half of 2017 will see Malum Sky continue to bring their music
to the rest of the UK with shows up and down the country, whilst also completing
work on their next full release due early 2018.


"A band that made a lot of new friends are Welsh prog
metallers Malum Sky who also packed out the tent,
taking the opportunity to school the crowd in how
to do a "Hell Yeah!" properly... Their blend of
beauty and darkness really hit the spot
with the Bloodstock faithful."
