Florida death metal band MALEVOLENT CREATION has just signed a management deal with Extreme Management Group (SUFFOCATION, ORIGIN). The band has also confirmed April 5 as the starting date for recording their new album with Eric Rutan at Mana Recording Studios (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS, GOATWHORE, etc.).
MALEVOLENT CREATION comments, “After over 20 years in existence, and now having the most solid line up in years, we really wanted to make sure that with this new album we elevated the band in every way. Getting good management was crucial and EMG has a great track record. Erik had been talking to us since Doomsday X to record us, and with Gus Rios (drums) being the band full time now, we didn't want him to have the responsibility of producing the album as well as writing and playing. Erik really understands what we are about, and has all of the same thoughts about recording as us. It really couldn't be a better working situation. We've said it before but this album really is without a doubt is the most relentless, focused and brutal MALEVOLENT CREATION album ever! We really went back to our roots, not only as a band, but as fans of metal. We wrote an album of songs that we as fans of brutal music would want to hear.” More...

Rockradio.co.uk has run a story about Phil Fasciana of Malevolent Creation apparently lying about stopping a convenience store robbery. Excerpts from the story follow.
Rock news outlets have been reporting how Phil Fasciana of Malevolent Creation interrupted a store hold-up last week. The guitarist has said he was shot at four times before disarming the junkie perp and shooting him dead. But with no one to back him up, reporters have been asking whether it really happened. Rock Radio has the answer.
Rock Radio has spoken to Detective Mark Shotwell of Fort Lauderdale Police's homicide squad, who says he’s been unable to find any evidence of such an event.
He explains: “This did not happen. Our last murder was on June 22 and Fasciana was not involved. I’m certain of this. Even if the death was a result of self-defence it would still be classed as a homicide and investigated as such.”
“All witnesses, reportees, victims and suspects are entered into a database, but the most recent entry for Fasciana is on April 1, involving him and a female in a domestic dispute."
Rock Radio has spoken to Fasciana about Detective Shotwell’s comments, and the guitarist replies: “The store where it took place isn’t considered Fort Lauderdale. What happened is true and I really don’t know how it leaked into Blabbermouth because I never told anyone about it.”
But Shotwell explains: “There are about 15 suburbs near Fort Lauderdale, but all murders use the Broward County Medical Examiners’ office for autopsies - mandatory in a homicide. There have been no murders in the entire county during July. 'Homeless crackheads' would trade a gun as soon as they got it and I've never seen one with two guns. And the scenario as described would have made headlines – even in Miami.”

Malevolent Creation has announced the cancellation of their "Death Before Dishonor" headlining European tour, which was slated to also include Vital Remains and Wykked Wytch.
The band comments: "The situation was beyond the band's control as they never received the contracts or plane tickets they we're promised by Yohan and Jenny of 'X Factor Booking Agency.' Instead, it was brought to the band's attention that the Agency was using the tour to embezzle money from the venue deposits!"
Malevolent Creation guitarist Phil Fasciana has posted the following message online:
“I know it has been some time since we have said much or updated things lately, but finally there are European tour dates posted on our MySpace page and there are more coming! Also, after much consideration and long talks between the three original band members of MALEVOLENT CREATION, we have to decided to stop fucking around! Just like all bands, we to have had our share of personal problems that have delayed things a bit. But we have to decided to continue touring around the world and after we return from our headlining tour of Europe with support from the mighty VITAL REMAINS and our friends from Florida WYKKED WYTCH in December, we will start the pre-production for a shitload of new MALEVOLENT CREATION songs for our eleventh full-length studio release. We are also going to re-record some songs from our third CD, ‘Stillborn,’ and also record some very cool cover songs from some of our favorite bands when we were little metalheads. Of course, there will be no suprises or weak material involved with these recording sessions and we are seriously talking about writing the fastest album we have ever written. I know all our CDs have a lot of fast songs, but this time i think we really need to let loose and just kick some serious ass.
"Not many bands have had the opportunity to have been around as long as we have, and everything could end at anytime. So before we decide to throw in the towel, we are gonna throw down the hardest MALEVOLENT CREATION album possible! The songs we have already started writing are so fast and brutal that we don’t want to mess with energy we have already created.”
Vile Vindiction, a new thrash/death band from Buffalo, NY, has finished recording their first self-titled release, which was recorded at Watchmen Studios.

Vile Vindiction features Jim Nickles, one of the original founding members of Malevolent Creation and former Hellwitch guitarist. You can check out a few tracks on the band's MySpace page.
Deicide frontman Glen Benton has posted the following message:
"It is with great pleasure to announce that I will be performing with Deicide once again after a 14 month absence and that my legal issues that have prevented myself from performing have been resolved.
"Without going into great detail about my personal life, because I am a person who prefers his privacy, I wish to extend my apologies to the promoters and to my business associates who may have been inconvenienced. More...
Florida based metal band INFERNAEON have announced the addition of several new members including Jeramie Kling formerly of The Absence. The bands front man Brian Werner had this to say, “After that last Pyrexia tour we had a cancer within the band that needed to be removed forcefully which threatened everything that this band is trying to accomplish. Our drummer at the time ended up getting the job with Malevolent Creation, so you can’t fault him for that. Sam and Brian just wanted to go in different directions and we wish them the best of luck. Seriously, we hope those guys find what they’re looking for. We have Chris Default from Divine Empire back in the band, who was an original member and wrote most of these songs anyways as well as Jeramie from The Absence who is straight up a seriously cool motherfucker and one of the best drummers I’ve heard in a while.”
The band also welcomes to the fold guitar player and long time friend Erick Leider to replace Sam Molina and Dave Stein on Keyboards.
“These guys are some of the most dedicated musicians I’ve worked with in a while. They take their trade seriously which makes working with them so much easier than before. I’ve known Erick for the better part of 10 years and when I asked him if he wanted to do this, he quit his job, cleaned out his bank account, left his woman and moved to the other side of the country to be a part of this. Not to mention Dave is Kevin’s brother so it’s cool to have some blood in the band.”
The band is currently on tour supporting their latest album, "A Symphony of Suffering," on Prosthetic Records. The band will be supporting Skinless and Vital Remains for the week and then finishing up with Fierce Allegiance on their way home to Florida.
“We have a shit load of touring coming up this summer and well into the fall. We can’t announce it yet until everything confirms, but we should be very active for the rest of the year. See you fuckers soon. We have a ton of new merch available at Indiemerch.com”

Each limited-edition digipack title (limited to 2,000 copies) will be made available on golden disc, digitally remastered using 24-bit technology. "Eternal" will also contain two bonus tracks: 'Remnants of Withered Decay' and 'Impaled Existence'.
MALEVOLENT CREATION's latest album, "Doomsday X", was released in the U.S. in July 2007 via Nuclear Blast Records and in Europe in August 2007 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded and engineered at Mercury Recording Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida by longtime friend and producer (and sometimes session member) Gus Rios, and is said to be the most diverse MALEVOLENT CREATION album recorded to date and "without a doubt their fastest!!" Mick Thomson, guitarist for SLIPKNOT, contributed a "ripping" guitar solo to the song 'Deliver My Enemy'.
