Malevolent Creation has once again been rejoined by original bassist Jason Blachowicz, who issued the following statement about returning to the band:
"Been in hiding, working in tattoo shops for quite some time now but my gut has been aching to do one of the things that I do best... spreading malevolence across the globe with my brothers in metal. The evil in my blood has motivated me to dust the cobwebs off of my bass and commit to performing blasphemy and anger upon mine and everyone else's ears once again. This is also for one of my inspirations, Peter Steele, and for all of the loyal Malevolent Creation fans who have been supporting us for 23 fucking years! Our 11th album, Invidious Dominion, is going to rip the weak and feeble to shreds! See ya'll on Tour!! Bring the rum and git ‘er done!”

"Malevolent Creation is very honored and excited to be touring with one of the true greats and living legends, Exodus! These guys are good people and good friends and we look forward to punishing the masses together as we both unleash our new material. The new Exodus is possibly their most brutal album ever and we feel that way about ours as well, so it seems fitting for us to tour together. It's really amazing to tour with one of the bands that influenced you to do this in the first place! Much thanks to the Exodus guys and Nuclear Blast as well! See you fuckers out there!"

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.”
