Last month, Malevolence announced their highly anticipated new album 'Malicious Intent' (out 20th May) with blazing first single 'On Broken Glass', marking their place amongst metal’s heavyweights. With an impressive set of European tour dates on the horizon alongside the record of their career, 2022 is inevitably Malevolence's year.
Today, the Sheffield 5-piece have delivered a decisive smackdown in the form of their crushing second single, 'Life Sentence'. Accompanied by Daniel Priess’ brainchild video concept, ‘Life Sentence’ is another punishing masterpiece from these Steel-City savages.
Malevolence front-man Alex Taylor stated,
"Anyone that has followed us for a while knows that Malevolence is capable of delivering a fairly wide spectrum of different sounds. Sometimes we want to write ballads, sometimes we want to write big choruses and sometimes we want to write songs that make you want to smash everything in your house to pieces. One of the hardest, darkest and most aggressive tracks from Malicious Intent, Life Sentence is dedicated to anyone that thought we had gone soft!"
'Malicious Intent' was recorded at Tree House Studios, UK. The record was produced by Malevolence, with mixing handled by Carl Bown, and engineering by Jim Pinder. The 'Malicious Intent' artwork was created by renowned artist Eliran Kantor.

The undisputed Heavy Metal Kings of the UK. In early 2020 came the highly anticipated EP release, The Other Side, introducing a brand-new side of Malevolence. Although only 3 tracks, each song showcased a depth and diversity that is uncommon in modern metal. Heart-wrenching ballads are blended perfectly with technical shredding and crushing breakdowns, effortlessly showcasing the band's talent as genuine songwriters. Despite the hard-fought success, Malevolence remains an autonomous crew. Operating from their Sheffield-based HQ, a previously derelict warehouse the band transformed themselves, Malevolence handles as much of their in-house operations as they possibly can. Including the formation and operation of Malevolence’s own label, MLVLTD Music. It was through this label that the band self-released The Other Side and although it was a first for the band, the release was a resounding success - racking up close to half a million streams on Spotify and Apple Music in its first few weeks of release. Malevolence fans will know that their records come few and far between. Emerging onto the scene in 2013 with their debut album Reign of Suffering, which is currently climbing above 2.15 million streams on Spotify. Released as teenagers, the level of song crafting skill stands the test of time and remains a defining moment in the band’s career. The next four years had Malevolence grinding their way through the European continent, gaining recognition as one of the hottest prospects in this new wave of international heavy metal. 2017’s Self Supremacy saw the Sheffield quintet selling out club shows all over Europe, the USA, and even south-east Asia/Japan. This in turn has earned them a cult-like following of die-hard fans, who wear the Malevolence logo on their clothing like a medal of honor. Now waiting with brand-new album 'Malicious Intent' and plans to tour amongst some of the biggest names in heavy music, Malevolence are poised to become the next legacy name in all of heavy music.
