Conquerors of the Night
Sinister. Ominous. Invoking and Archaic. The dark, foreboding craft of ANCIENT MALUS was initially conceived in 2002, by guitarist/songwriter Steve Markowski. Alex Carrillo joined on drums from late 2006-2009, he rejoined in 2010. Several demos (2004-2009), lineup changes and live assaults followed. Despite several setbacks due to undedicated members, the sheer defiance of Ancient Malus has proven that the band is not ready to let up. Former keyboardist Samuel Garza was added to rankings as vocalist in 2009 and the band released the ‘Infernal Desecration’ Split with Satanized (Turkey) shortly after. Some early material was finally documented when the band entered Blue Cat Studios to record ‘Grimoire of Abomination’. With the band revolving around a session bassist for the recording/live sessions, a permanent member was found when Bryan Eckermann joined Ancient Malus in mid 2012. Grimoire of Abomination was released October 31, 2012.
With a revitalized, stronger lineup, Ancient Malus continues to destroy stages and plans to reenter the studio in early 2013.
