Hello fans of Malacoda,
We've decided to revamp many things about the band once our new drummer, Victor Boechat, joined at the start of 2020. COVID-19 has affected things not just in the music industry, but all industries worldwide. We've been working behind the scenes to build our new vision of Malacoda now that we finally have all our pieces to the band "puzzle" in place.
We wanted to recreate the website from scratch, rather than just updating our older model for numerous reasons. For starters we needed a better system to create a community for fans of the band. We now have a proper mailing list and are working on ways to bring more ways for fans to interact with each other as well as members of the band. Our store will be completely revamped if it hasn't already by the time this post is made public, and we'll have a much cleaner system in place for all of our digital goods as well.
Our outlook on the band has gone through an evolution, as it has with every Malacoda release cycle. We're all die hard fans of the music the influenced us and taking those influences we've managed to build something unique. We've learned that we need to change the way we present our music and our vision to people. The past few years, due to commitments and long-lasting decisions we made, we haven't been able to do that effectively. I won't bore you with the specifics, so I'll just say we're still quite away from releasing some new material but it will be the best and most consistent vision of Malacoda to date when it comes out.
Lastly, the music. We've been working on a lot of material the past few years. Even before our last record came out I had at least eight or nine songs demoed out. A lot of stuff behind the scenes almost had these songs come out under a different moniker with different band members, but after sitting on the material for so long and making adjustments to make them the best they can be I decided it had to come out under the Malacoda name when the time was right. We've been building a team to help us make our vision a reality. The new music couldn't have been made without some good friends helping us along the way.
So, with all of that said, welcome to the new website and keep your ears to the ground. A new Malacoda will be charging through the depths before you know it....
