In late 2013 Malevolence broke onto the scene with the release of their debut album “Reign Of Suffering”; capturing the attention of the underground with their brutal and eclectic mix of styles from across the metal and hardcore spectrum.
The Sheffield five-piece soon received critical acclaim from alternative publications around the globe, landing them airplay on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with some proclaiming the record as a modern classic. Malevolence quickly generated a reputation for their infamous live shows, known for provoking (friendly) violence and insanity across the European club circuit. Their skilfully executed & diverse blend of influences allowed them to transcend the confines of their genre and gave them the versatility to perform within a number of different scenes.
Malevolence has successfully completed contrasting support tours with bands ranging from Dying Fetus to Comeback Kid all without ever compromising the integrity the band was founded upon.
