On Friday, September 21, extreme progressive metallers MALEVOLENCE have unleashed in straight cooperation with DECIBEL MAGAZINE (USA) the first audio single from the upcoming 3rd full length effort ANTITHETICAL.  One week later (Friday, September 28) MALEVOLENCE advanced the audio single S L I T H E R I N G available via PUREGRAINAUDIO (CANADA) for direct download under exclusivity.

S L I T H E R I N G represents a very conceptual and intense view addressing the radical eradication of all the spiritual and impious structures slinking over the Earth.  On a daily basis an artistic demonstration of free will and non-conformist expression towards the insignificant mentalities that generate defilement. Those commonly understood as the foundations of truth using the language of contradiction to attract and conquer above weakness and depression all over the place.

S L I T H E R I N G is the ultimate insubordinate statement addressing the “art of war” against such deceitful principles. The fragmented worldwide paranoia must be reenergized by individual will – ability – knowledge and inner perception.

An episode showcasing the power of knowledge versus faith!

A radical audio (visual) installment representing the modern times clashing with the old/dysfunctional system of hypnotizing values.

The 1st (ever) official MALEVOLENCE VIDEO for the upcoming album ANTITHETICAL will be unleashed during the next weeks. . . .

MALEVOLENCE fuse extreme metal forces with DIRK VERBEUREN

October 27th, 2011


Whilst on advanced stage of pre-production mode for their 3rd album MALEVOLENCE reveals that DIRK VERBEUREN is the enduring drummer working with the band. The collaboration started back in May 2011 and DIRK is writing material for the album along with CARLOS CARIANO (vocals & guitars).


DIRK possesses a vast experience performing and recording and even if most of the songs were previously composed when DIRK entered the team, he easily caught up the tempo and delivered the goods with total dedication adding a new dimension to all the material.


Being one of the most versatile drummers around these days MALEVOLENCE wanted to bring the outstanding character of DIRK drumming patterns unto the new material continuously searching for unrelenting ferocity and controlled groove in pure pandemonium style.


DIRK VERBEUREN is the official SOILWORK drummer and worked recently on the latest works for such established acts as DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, WARREL DANE and in the forthcoming JEFF LOOMIS solo album.


On DIRK own words: “I’m very excited to join the MALEVOLENCE squad for their third album. The new material sounds promisingly raw and pure, so I’m impatient to add some crushing drums to the mix. With the mighty V. SANTURA behind the knobs, I’m confident the result will kill!

On the ever growing Culture of Metal surviving is no easy task! One such band that’s proudly and resolutely defied all predictions of their own termination is MALEVOLENCE. A band that on the back of bringing us MARTYRIALIZED (1999) an album that completely showcased their instrumental phenomenon in the Metal craft forefront, whilst blowing the unrestricted minds all over the globe to generate simply one of the mightiest Portuguese extreme metal exports of their generation, is such a testimonial.

Whilst perpetuating an accurate existence with a constant refusal to follow people’s expectations, MALEVOLENCE is an institution that constructed a pathway growing from inner pulse & strength. Exploding with the kind of ferocity that can only come from a band that’s really been through hell and back, MALEVOLENCE still keeps as relevant these days as on their inception (1994) bringing forth their stylish, sinister and aggressive fortification of sound ahead.

With such strength and determination, MALEVOLENCE triumphs again over all adversities (in order to present their most comprehensive, bold and perverse collection of songs to date), they proudly announce the recruitment of none other than producer and sound engineer V. SANTURA (TRIPTYKON / DARK FORTRESS).

About this amalgamation of minds V. SANTURA had this to say: “I am very pleased and honored to work with MALEVOLENCE, one of Portugal’s finest and most established Extreme Metal bands. I’m looking forwards to some creative and highly challenging sessions.”

The pre-production is going on (as we speak) between all the minds engage to bring along the metal monster. The final recordings, mixing and mastering of the bands 3rd album shall be perpetuated in WOODSHED STUDIOS in GERMANY, tentatively in the beginning of 2012.

CARLOS CARIANO added about this excellent teamwork: “In an age where people are losing their fucking minds we are concentrating ten ton times more to generate and release a pure dose of Extreme Metal mayhem coming from our inner passion and against the defeatist. It’s not just for us or the Portuguese crowds; it’s for everyone at a worldwide level that constantly refuses to bow down to the predefined patterns! The reason why we have made an option for V. SANTURA to work with us on all the single details of this amalgamation it’s because the man can deliver passion and organic artistic quality in the whole lot he his obsessive with” From the unique dark excellence contained within TRIPTYKON “ EPARISTERA DAIMONES”, to the blackish heart of DARK FORTRESS “YLEM”, to the most technical tapestry of OBSCURA “OMNIVIUM” or even the raw sheer aggression of PESTILENCE “DOCTRINE” he adds: “The man has it all along with our own imagination to bring to the forefront all that’s inside our minds”

The band is thorough that MARTYRIALIZED is not a straightforward project to top and even V. SANTURA acknowledges the fact by stating: “I seriously consider FREDRIK NORDSTROM (FREDMAN STUDIOS) as one of the best producers in metal music, so by releasing this album together with MALEVOLENCE is utterly interesting and remarkable on all levels plus quite a large challenge in terms of footsteps to fill for me” while MALEVOLENCE collectively states: “We have been asked constantly over the past years how will we top MARTYRIALIZED. As a matter of a fact we all find the irresistible magnetism of that release now in 2011 with the same devotion of when we crave it back in 1999. Still we are not to compromise under any circumstance or wall of pressure. We are missing albums with a nonconforming style these days and this is exactly what crowds can expect from our next move so beware our metal monster!”

The World of metal is simply exploding with stories that continue to enthrall and inspire, MALEVOLENCE is one of those stories of perseverance still refusing to put hands down. After all it’s not just the band getting excited, the metal community in general has a new rise above triumphant holder to celebrate and MALEVOLENCE is here to stay, to perpetuate and bring rejoice with their own seeds and earthworms. And it is made in Portugal! or
