ENIGMATIC BAY AREA DUO MAMALEEK SHARE “SICARII” The song debuts in advance of the release of the band’s fifth studio album Out Of Time on August 31.
“Mamaleek present a strong argument for being the next California black metal export worth following in the future.” - Sputnik Music
“The group cloaks its music in the kind of warm, hypnotic distortion that defines shoegaze, and underneath that haze is a style that's conceptually abrasive yet altogether beautiful.” - FORBES
San Francisco-based black metal weirdos Mamaleek are set to release Out of Time, their fifth full-length album and second for The Flenser. The band consists of two mysterious brothers who have kept entirely to themselves about the project. Just recently the duo made their first live appearance, and Out of Time can be considered as the final chapter of this era of anonymity. Out of Time was recorded by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden (Deafheaven, Bosse-de-Nage, Botanist, etc.). This is Mamaleek’s first double album and it is their most ambitious work to date.
Today, the band has premiered "Sicarii" (listen to and share via YouTube) which presents a sneak peak into Out of Time as a whole, as Mamaleek's connection to the black metal genre grows more abstract with each release. On this record, the band has intensified their unique approach to heavy music with a variety of unusual samples—such as crooning from Turkish concerts, advertisements for items that long exist, and fragments of old pop songs.
Out Of Time is available for pre-order now.
