Lake Malice – Post Genesis

Lake Malice released their fantastic debut EP called Post Genesis through SO Recordings!

The EP opens with Blossom which is a fantastic song. It’s angsty and has great guitar lines and breakdowns. The vocal delivery from Alice is fantastic, switching from almost melodic gold to in your face angst.

The synth-laden Bloodbath has been one of my favourite Lake Malice songs since I first heard of the duo. I just love the electronic elements and the way the lyrics are delivered.

Power Game shows off Alice’s more melodic vocals which is nice to hear as her voice is incredible.

Single Mitsuko is full of rage and anger and is a song I can relate to well, as it talks about family values and the emotions of a fragmented childhood, which hits home hard.

We turn to an upbeat club style banger in Stop the Party next. The super poppy vocals over synths contrasts well with the screams over the heavier instrumentation. It’s a really catchy song.

One thing that Lake Malice do incredibly well is mix genres and styles together well and the EP is testament to this. The vocals are delivered well and over instrumentation that fits perfectly to add an extra intensity.

Listening to Post-Genesis, it’s hard to believe that this is a debut EP!
