Portugal's Malevolence will be back on November 22nd, 2013 with "Antithetical," a brand new studio album.

"Antithetical" is the follow-up to 1999’s "Martyrialized" that was recorded in Fredman Studio by Fredrik Nordstrom.

Malevolence feels that "Antithetical" will surpass the previous album, stating, "We are at a creative peak right now, and Antithetical as an album reflects that. Everything from the production, to the writing, to the performances are a step up from our last album."

Today we are pleased to bring you the U.S. exclusive premiere of the album's title track, which can be heard below. The band comments: “Antithetical is one of our most forward thinking songs. We explored and enhanced the contrast between elements from the progressive and the extreme metal fields to add another perspective to the whole album.”

While this is a slow burn of a track that builds up to the metal insanity, you can also hear the more frantically paced songs "Devoured Unlimited" and "Slithering" off the upcoming album.

The "Antithetical" album was produced by Carlos Cariano and recorded in 20M2SEA Studio by Paulo Pereira in Portugal. Mixed and mastered at Woodshed Studio by V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence), the album includes drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, Devin Townsend).

"Working with Malevolence was extremely challenging, but in the end the album turned out great,” said V. Santura. “I especially like the overall aggressivity and those few, but very delicate industrial elements - Quite special!"

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Slithering
2. Cult of the Everlasting
3. Devoured Unlimited
4. Antithetical
5. Equilibrium in Extremis
6. Exocortex Momentum
7. Mechanisms of Destructive Behaviour
