The return of ,Ancient History"

A stone chamber. Smell of mould, sand and age. Darkness, torches, fading artwork on the walls. Steps lead deeper into the stone. 3000km away from the Valley of the Kings, in 2015 a band have set themselves the tasks to merge the atmosphere of ancient Egypt musically into a classic Black Metal fundament. Under the banner of the lion-headed god MAAHES (the lord of darkness, winds and slaughter) they stepped out of the catacombs and with a unique stage show they have already been guests at festivals like the Wolfszeit or the Ragnarök Festival.

Conceptually as well as musically, the quintet shows that they know how to shoulder the burden of extreme metal history. Just as the protagonist of their concept album "Reincarnation" escapes from the captivity of the ancient Egyptian underworld and resurrects successfully at the end, Maahes stylistically fight their way through a quarter of a century of extreme music history. If you think about legendary albums like "Storm of the Light's Bane", "Deathcult Armageddon", "At the Heart of Winter" or "God hates us all", you are probably not too wrong. But the band also allows itself cross-references in Death Metal or Heavy Metal in order to realize its compositional ideas without disturbing barriers.

Anno 2020 it is now time to unleash this result of their work so far on mankind. "Reincarnation" was already produced in 2018 and was recorded in various studios, including Studio Wustrack (a.o. Vroudenspil). Drumrecordings, mix and mastering took place under the direction of Florian Dammasch at "Nightside Audio" in Solingen (a.o. Eïs, Ash Of Ashes). The debut is completed by the artwork of Brazilian artist Caio Caldas/Cadiesart (Dragonforce, Doro, a.o.).
