The second full-length studio album by Italian Horror Heavy Metal band.
Originally started as a Black Metal band with screeching vocals, Malamorte from Rome already earned an excellent reputation in the Underground with one EP ("The Fall Of Babylon", 2014) and an album ("Devilish Illusions", 2016).
On their new album, mastermind Lord Vampyr (Cain, Nailed God, ex- Theatre Des Vampires) and his project present unblemished Occult Heavy Metal with some decent Doom impacts. Plaintive yet stirring vocals, influenced by King Diamond, meet up with the outstanding, dark atmosphere of early Death SS classics. Sometimes with a little touch of Black Metal. Doom influenced melodies and dark organ sounds give a decent obscure charm to the album.
 Malamorte will remind you of the Darkthrone albums that draw most of their influence from the first wave bands, alas Bathory, Celtic Frost, etc., and that occasional harmony, or sing-along chorus that’ll leave you stoked by just how catchy it is. That dash of King Diamond, or even influence from modern acts like Tribulation, seem to relate to Malamorte’s material quite a bit, and these meeting points carry a certain energy that makes for a very subtle yet effective get-together between old and new Metal.
"Satan Goes to Heaven to Destroy the Kingdom of God" is packed with tear-jerking guitar leads, catchy sing along choruses, outstanding riffs and an interesting thick crunchy sound, that throws you immediately to an overall atmosphere and aesthetics of devilish music, that’s not afraid to not take itself too seriously. The vocals are decent enough and fit well with the instrumentation, which is frequently accompanied by the sounds of an organ to smooth things naturally into darker realms, how well that works for Malamorte is very obvious upon even the first listening to this album. The true charm of "Satan Goes to Heaven to Destroy the Kingdom of God" is where all these over-lapping influences meet to form one well-shaped piece of fluent consistency and undeniable songwriting quality.
This is an album most Metalheads will enjoy, no matter what type of Metal is your personal cup of tea! And fans of King Diamond and Mercyful Fate will be pleased, without a doubt. Masterpiece!!
