Malevolence - Reign Of Suffering Cover

"For once, the hype is entirely justified..."

Vicious, relentless, and without a whiff of filler, Malevolence’s debut album is a slab of pit-ready gold. ‘Reign Of Suffering’ sees the Sheffield wrecking crew armed to the teeth with monolithic groove and ready for a tussle, with ‘Eternal Torment’ and ‘Condemned To Misery’ equal parts precision-guided modern metal and pure hardcore fury. For every gut-busting breakdown there’s a beguilingly complex riff around the corner, with ‘In The Face Of Death’ a collision of Hatebreed chug and Lamb Of God shred (via Northern England), and ‘Delusions Of Fear’ building to a genuinely electrifying finale. For once, the hype is entirely justified.
