Metal Blade Records signs Malefice

Official press release: Metal Blade Records is very proud to announce the Worldwide signing of the fierce UK metal act Malefice. Formed in Reading, Berkshire in 2003 Malefice made quite an impact with their monstrous debut album 'Entities.' Crossing the boundaries of Thrash and Death Metal, 'Entities' specialized in the same power groove that saw Pantera and Lamb Of God rise to legendary status in the field. Arriving with nothing in the way of fancy haircuts, cheesy gimmicks or music industry hype, Malefice are a band that captured the minds and banged the heads of every metalhead that missed metal in its purest, most uncompromising form; brutal, tuneful and heavy as hell. Comments Malefice: "The best place for a metal band to be in this day and age is Metal Blade Records. Both Malefice and Metal Blade want nothing but the best for our genre, and together, we feel we can put honest heavy music, back to the top where it belongs." After sharing the stage with some of the most esteemed names in modern metal (Sepultura, DevilDriver and Morbid Angel to name but a few) and earning universal praise for their festival-stealing slot at Download 2008, Malefice have earned the reputation as one of Europe's elite metal talents and that reputation is set to soar to all-new heights with the release of their upcoming, as yet untitled new album on Metal Blade Records.
