it's difficult to express in words how much this Arizona based band means to me. their unique take on pure and passionate music is both impressive and awe-inspiring. it was back in the summer 1992 (or so) when a friend of mine had sent me a cassette tape of bands that he had been getting into recently. we usually traded tapes back and forth through the mail, exposing each other to new bands, most of whom were underground and got little recognition in the magazines or fanzines of the times. one day he sent me a really long tape (120 minutes!) with a whole side devoted to one band. a mysteriously named group called Malignus Youth. i grabbed the tape and my walkman and headed out the door to work. at the time, i had a job where i was allowed to listen to music on headphones while working. within moments of listening to the cassette tape on my shift, i knew that i had a new favorite band.

i can't compare Malignus Youth to any other band that i know of because their approach and their sound stands on it's own and is far above any refernce point that would unjustly cast a pale comparison to these superior sounds. Malignus Youth sounds like a band influenced by melodic punk and hardcore bands. perhaps groups like Descendents, 7 Seconds, Bad Brains. but the style of those bands seems to have only left minor marks on the sound of Malignus Youth, with it's members forging along and trusting in the power of their own personality to create their songs. they combine very fast playing that is surprisingly catchy and distinct; full of weird melodies and stop-start dynamics, with high pitched vocals that seem to embrace a barbershop quartet-style of harmonic quality. most of their songs are short little bursts of divine inspiration that sound like a celebration of life and love.
