 Divine Malice


En Raga Sül is a no-nonsense, no-fucking-around pile up of thrash, hardcore and noise-rock that rarely lingers long enough to be casually cast as any. Think The Stooges jamming with members of the Melvins and Slayer: harsh, challenging, engaging and relentlessly dynamic…” – Metal Hammer

“Nearly every track wrings pure joy from menace, while rocking like a towering great bastard.” - Terrorizer

"...gritty, garage-y punk the way it's supposed to be played when you're not worried about how your t-shirt fits or what black metal records Johnny Hipster has in his collection that you don't...unbelievably sooty, dirt-caked riffs of Slayer, Lightning Bolt and Noxagt as transposed by the Melvins, the Jesus Lizard and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion...noisy excellence..." - Decibel

“Veering from attritional pounding riffs, vile screams and distorted vocals to more full-on, full-speed punk intensity, this is consistently ace stuff.” – Rock Sound

"Medusa harnesses the power of Slayer's most evil riffs and filter, twist, and abuse them via the record collector, nerdworthy triptych of Melvins, Lightning Bolt, and The Jesus Lizard. At times they are surprisingly melodic, other moments sound like they're trying to separate your arms from their sockets in order to use them as battle re-enactment swords, and sometimes they're trying to do both...there is definitely no fucking around." - Outburn

"Each riff is a dirt-encrusted, cracked diamond, rammed down our throats like a gimp's ballgag. Vocalist Scott VanBuren froths and screams in glee as it goes down...Medusa make raw, physical music, fit for dancing and involuntary auto-face-punching. Straight from the pit mine to the mosh pit." -

"After listening to En Raga Sül , I didn't know whether to raise my hands in victory or hang my head in defeat. Either way, I got my ass kicked. This band's moniker fits them well, as Medusa surely have all the makings of a mythological beast of legend." -

"...these guys assault Melvins-style doom with a nasty punk rock cockslap" -

"Medusa takes their idea of a heavy metal riff, and then just pounds the shit out of it for two minutes straight in a repetitive, thundering way. And I've got to admit, it's pretty awesome. These short bursts of songs are what keeps the album fresh and listenable." -

EN RAGA SüL takes you through a small medieval atmosphere where you seem unsure about everything around you, but there’s something peculiar keeping you from leaving. From shiny, screaming guitars, to distorted thrash metal riffs and drumming like a giant banging away on aluminum pots, this album is able to keep you on your toes as each track plays through with a forcible, menacing manner." -
