Sheffield's Malevolence are among the UK's fastest rising metal outfits and with the recent announcement of their new album Malicious Intent, said statement will be further emphasized. It arrives by way of Nuclear Blast Records and the band's own MLVLTD label on May 20th, accompanied with another Eliran Kantor gem to serve as the proper entry point for the sonic barrage embodied within. Lead single On Broken Glass bursts forth and paves the path for the band's third full-length with a crushing breakdown, electrifying solo, and crowd-ready energy.


Frontman Alex Taylor comments:


"Malicious Intent is a demonstration of strength. It is the next step in the evolution of our band and is the product of hard work and creativity over two years of difficulties, lock downs and complete upheaval to every day life. The album embodies the progression of our sound but also our growth as individuals and I feel like with each release we put out, our sound matures with us. The subjects that we touch on with this album will resonate with those who are seeking self reflection and progression. This is something we as a band will always strive for as we continue to carve our own path and build new foundations in the heavy music world. If you are a heavy music fan, there is something on this album for you. These are heavy metal anthems that will stand the test of time!"


Regarding the On Broken Glass video, Taylor adds,


“The video was filmed on location in Malevolence’s home town Sheffield. Directed by long time friend Daniel Prieß, the concept of the video was simple; to capture the raw energy of Malevolence in a live environment. Everything behind the video was done completely DIY by the band, from hiring the venue, stage and crew to inviting close friends and family down to the shoot. The video encapsulates the loyalty and passion that Malevolence’s fans have for the band”.
