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. Arpmandude from Psyopus plays the first lead on the song "Puritanical," He stopped by the studios, preparing for their new recordings at Watchmen, and contributed his blazing solo. 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.

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'.

Veteran Florida-based death metallers MALEVOLENT CREATION have recruited drummer Fabian Aguirre (SYNAPTICIDE, ex-GRINDCRUSHER, MISTY FATE, ANGEL NEGRO) as the replacement for the recently departed Dave Culross. Handling the bass duties for the group on the road will reportedly be Marco Martell, who has already previously toured with the band.
The band previously stated about Aguirre, "MALEVOLENT CREATION compare this drummer to a Gene Hoglan-type of style and is a brutally fast hard-hitter."

After a long hiatus, founding member Jarrett Pritchard has invoked the core trio of Tampa's now legendary death metal outfit EULOGY. Rejoined by Jason Avery, who spent many years fronting MONSTROSITY and drummer Clayton Gore of St. Louis' HARKONIN, the band is set to record a new album beginning on September 6 in Orlando with Jarrett at the controls.
Commented Jarrett: "At this point I have completed eight songs for the record and it promises not to dissapoint. On bass we have enlisted Mike Pogionne of MONSTROSITY/LECHEROUS NOCTURNE and at this time second guitar duties will be filled by none other than longtime friend Rob Barrett (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE PLOW, MALEVOLENT CREATION, SOLSTICE). At this point we have not approached any labels about the release and we intend to have the cap on it December 15, 2007 for an early 2008 release."

Bam Margera has made it his mission to expose an entire generation of his peers to some original high-energy music through his VIVA LA BANDS album and tour series. Brought to you by Ferret Music and Filthy Note Records, VIVA LA BANDS, VOL. 2 will hit stores on September 4, 2007.
The CD features exclusive tracks, written and recorded for the CD/DVD combo from some of Bam’s favorite acts like CLUTCH, IN FLAMES, CKY, CHILDREN OF BODOM, VIKING SKULL and VAINS OF JENNA. A US-exclusive track from SHINY TOY GUNS and music from other faves like GWAR, THE SOUNDS, DIMMU BORGIR and KILL HANNAH also appears on the killer compilation. The full track listing for the 20-song album is displayed below.
Bam is as excited for the release as fans around the world will be… "I’m so fucking psyched that some of my favorite bands recorded exclusive songs this time around! Clutch and In Flames fucking rock and my brother Jess did a sick CKY remix. Obviously The Sounds are one of my favorite bands - my wife even insisted that they play our wedding. I also sent the first band I signed, Vains of Jenna, into the studio to record a new track for the record.”
The DVD component to this release contains almost an hour of never-before-seen Bam footage – a must-have for the ‘Jackass generation!’ Revealing what makes the DVD special, Bam adds “I’m finding some of my best, unused footage for the DVD. Everyone keeps asking me for a CKY5 but I think this DVD might be the closest thing to that!"
Viva La Bands’ companion tour will be taking out some of Bam’s favorite acts and is estimated to visit over 20 cities in the USA beginning in October 2007. Fans can also expect to see Bam and his friends at select shows.
