Canadian Horror Metal MALACODA Posts New Video ‘Wrapped In Laments’
New Album “Restless Dreams” Out Now! via Rockshots Records
L-R: Tiny Basstank – Bass, Lucas Di Mascio – Vocals, Vlad Prokhorov – Drums, Mick D Kiss – Guitar
Releasing their album ‘Restless Dreams’ during October of last year via Rockshots Records, Canada’s horror influenced symphonic power metallers MALACODA are sharing with fans their new lyric video for their track ‘Wrapped In Laments’.
Vocalist Lucas Di Mascio explains the track:
“Full of melancholic lead melodies over a frantic, almost djent sounding guitar riff, topped off with a dissonant drawn-out scream, the song sounds eerie, angry and sad all at once. It was inspired by the “Lying Figure” monsters from the Silent Hill 2 video game. They are female creatures that are trapped in a straight jacket of their own skin. They have holes in their chest where their hearts should be and they spew acid if the main character gets too close. They are beautifully haunting and evoke pity and disgust. They represent how the main character’s wife felt while dying of melanoma, she felt she was a monster- too hideous to love and trapped in her own skin. I always took the acid-spewing from the chest as symbolic to how she was very verbally abusive to the main character in her final days and said things that while hurtful, came from the heart. The chorus brings up the words “lie about” as a common phrase, and it’s both referencing how the main character would lie to her about his infidelity, but also how she felt all she could do was physically lie in a bed and waste away.”

Inspired by the horror video game “Silent Hill 2”, “Restless Dreams” is a musical journey through dark tormented themes of doubt, loss, guilt, and terror. The plot of the album follows a broken man’s journey through the ghost town of Silent Hill after receiving a letter from his dead wife asking him to meet her there. MALACODA brings a fresh interpretation of these themes and artfully bring to life the oppressive, claustrophobic aura of the fog consumed town with deviously clever song-writing and mind-catching lyrics. “Restless Dreams” is a musical release unlike any other. Fans and new listeners alike, prepare for an atmospheric and melodic metal descent into a world of horror and despair. ‘Restless Dreams’ was masterfully mixed by Jon Howard (Threat Signal, Imonolith).
