Watch Malevolence Perform “Karma” With Lorna Shore’s Will Ramos

During their August 13 set at the Bloodstock Open Air festival in Walton-on-Trent, UK, Malevolence were joined onstage by Lorna Shore’s Will Ramos for a performance of “Karma.” You can see pro-shot footage of that below. Malevolence’s Alex Taylor commented:

“We knew that we wanted to make Bloodstock a special show, so it only felt right that we invited a few special guests onto the stage with us to make the night even more memorable for the people of Bloodstock. I hit up Lorna Shore and asked if Will would be up for it, and he was on it straight away.”

Malevolence Premiere “Higher Place” Music Video

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their song “Higher Place.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Malicious Intent.”

Vocalist Alex Taylor commented:

“‘Higher Place‘ focuses on a subject that everyone will deal with at some point in loss; death/bereavement. This is one most heartfelt songs we have written as a band, however, once we began writing this song, it came together very naturally. This song is a huge step outside our comfort zone, we hope you enjoy it! The visuals for this song were our first venture into a narrative-driven video, filmed in our hometown of Sheffield. We worked closely with Enon Films to bring the concept to life.”

Director Gabriel Fernández-Gil added:

“The song inspired sorrow, drama, and a dark epicness, which is what guided us in the making of this video. In the story, you’ll be able to identify themes of loss, revenge, and the UK’s knife-crime epidemic. As the lyrics and instrumentation, our characters “ascend” to different metaphorical planes of existence or lack thereof.”

Malevolence commented:

“We are devastated to announce that due to unforeseen personal reasons beyond our control, we are unable to join The Acacia Strain for their US tour starting this weekend.

We have tried everything in our power to figure out a solution but unfortunately we haven’t been able to make it work.

We are not in the business of cancelling shows and we don’t take it lightly.

In all the years we have been a band, you can count the amount of shows we’ve cancelled on one hand.

We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to The Acacia Strain, I AM and 156/Silence and their teams, as well as everyone who was excited to see us over in the states.

We will back as soon as we can and will make it up to you all.

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support”

Malevolence Premiere “Still Waters Run Deep” Music Video

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “Still Waters Run Deep.” This track is from the band’s new album “Malicious Intent,” which will be released on May 20. Vocalist Alex Taylor commented:

“This video is a deep dive into the history of Malevolence. We dug through hours of old archive footage and picked out some highlights from over the years as the song is a tribute to the journey we have set upon together and the bond it has formed between us. After hundreds of shows and thousands of hours in the van and practice room, being a part of this band has been the most rewarding experience of our lives and this video reflects the evolution and progress of Malevolence over the last 12 years.”

Malevolence Premiere “Life Sentence” Music Video

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “Life Sentence.” This track is from the band’s new album “Malicious Intent,” which will be released on May 20. Vocalist Alex Taylor commented

“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!”

Malevolence Premiere “On Broken Glass” Music Video

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “On Broken Glass.” This track is from the band’s new album “Malicious Intent,” which will be released on May 20.

Vocalist Alex Taylor said the following about the video:

“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.”

He also added the following about the album:

“‘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!”

Malevolence Premiere Music Video For “Keep Your Distance” Feat. Knocked Loose’s Bryan Garris

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “Keep Your Distance.” This track features Knocked Loose’s Bryan Garris and it will appear on the band’s new EP “The Other Side,” which is set to be released on April 24.

Malevolence told Kerrang! the following:

“‘Keep Your Distance‘ encompasses the difficulty in making the decision to cut off those around you that bring nothing positive to your life. It was written about positive aggression; having the strength to remove and liberate yourself from any negative influence that you see fit – a sentiment that we believe everyone can relate to.”

They also added the following about working with Garris:

“Since the song is short and sweet, we wanted a high energy video that would truly capture the vibe and chaotic nature of our live performances. Bryan hit the studio to record his part a day or two before the tour started and jumped on stage to sing it with us every night with immediate effect.”
