Malevolent Creation Posts New Lyric Video Online

“No one can destroy this Malevolent Creation” is a legendary line by the late, great Bret Hoffmann, who passed away on July 7th, 2018. Renowned and revered for his vicious vocal style and unique onstage presence, Hoffmann is impossible to replace, but co-founder Phil Fasciana decided to face the challenge and affirm the truth behind this lyric from the group’s 1991 debut “The Ten Commandments”.

Thus, on January 18th Malevolent Creation will release their new studio album, The 13th Beast, which introduces a new lineup consisting of Phil Cincilla (drums), Josh Gibbs (bass), Phil Fasciana (guitars) and vocalist/guitarist Lee Wollenschlaeger (Throne Of Nails, Imperial Empire).

Now, the band releases a first track from this savage offering. “Because of us all living so far apart, this track is one of the few full collaboration songs on the album”, says Lee. “We are all very proud of The 13th Beast, and ‘Mandatory Butchery’ is the perfect song to experience a lot of the elements on the album."

The lyric video, created by Guilherme Henriques (www.guilhermevision.com) can be seen below: More...
