MALEVOLENT CREATION Announce US Headlining Tour

Celebrating 25th Anniversary Of The Ten Commandments Album

MALEVOLENT CREATION have announced that they will return to the road in the US for the first time in five years supporting their new album Dead Man's Path. The reviled Florida death metal outfit is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of their iconic debut record, The Ten Commandments. The upcoming trek starts on October 6th at The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA and ends three weeks later in New Orleans, LA. Fans can expect to hear songs from The Ten Commandments and Dead Man's Path, as well as select tracks from their vast discography. When asked about the tour, the band simply offered the comment "no flesh shall be spared." Joining MALEVOLENT CREATION on all dates of the tour are INCANTATION and SEEKER.

Time flies fast and deals cruel hand. For death metal legends MALEVOLENT CREATION, however, Father Time is weak and feeble, his scythe a cane and his hourglass long broken. To wit: it’s been 24 years since The Ten Commandments shocked media outlets and found wide-spread acceptance in death metal’s ardent fanbase. Since then, the Floridians never gave in. Not to waning interest in the genre, not to black metal’s near-takeover of extreme metal, not to nü-metal’s commercial viability. No prevailing force – supernatural or otherwise – has diminished MALEVOLENT CREATION’s aggressive spirit and inexhaustible fire. Certainly, the three original members – guitarist Phil Fasciana, vocalist Bret Hoffmannn, and bassist Jason Blachowicz – didn’t think they’d still be writing, recording, and touring in a band when they formed in Buffalo in 1987, but their tenacity and perseverance over the years has shown dedication to the art of death. And all that comes with it.

Lyrically, Dead Man’s Path is commentary on our own brutal reality. Written by and through the lens of Hoffmann, the lyrics on MALEVOLENT CREATION’s newest reflect mankind’s relentless cruelty rather than valorize it. Songs like “Corporate Weaponry”, “Extinction Personified”, and “Blood Of The Fallen” aren’t of legend or folklore – no zombies or mythology here. Rather, they’re straight out of nightly newscasts or horrific stories from social media feeds. There’s also a personal side to Hoffmann’s cutthroat lines. “Bret writes about reality,” Fasciana says. “Whether it’s about himself or what’s happening in the world it’s always real. Bret’s lyrics may always have a theme throughout each song that deals with death in one way or another and it works for him and our music. I know he does write a bit about his own life experiences which are probably things that piss him off in this world and, again, it fits with the music perfectly. We never have to tell him what to write about or how to sing anything. We may have an idea or suggestion here and there but for the most part Bret just does his own thing.”
