The 13th Beast: by MALEVOLENT CREATION (pre-order)
  • The 13th Beast: by MALEVOLENT CREATION (pre-order)
In cart Not available Out of stock
$12.00

The long-running and highly influential extreme metal group MALEVOLENT CREATION – whose trio of albums released by Roadrunner Records in the early 1990s helped to pioneer the “Florida death metal” sound – will release their new album, “The 13th Beast,” in North America via M-Theory Audio on March 1. The record – the group's first since the passing of original vocalist Bret Hoffman, who died from colon cancer earlier this year – is available now for pre-order in both CD digipak and limited-edition colored vinyl.

MALEVOLENT CREATION – whose 1991 debut, “The Ten Commandments,” was named one of the Top 100 Death Metal Albums Of All Time by Decibel Magazine in 2012 – was originally formed in Buffalo, New York, but the group soon moved to Florida and became a staple in the state's burgeoning death metal scene. “The 13th Beast” is their first release since 2015's acclaimed “Dead Man's Path” (Century Media), hailed by Metal Hammer as “probably their fastest material since 1997's 'In Cold Blood'.”

Musically, "The 13th Beast" expands upon "Dead Man's Path" yet also incorporates a brutality known from albums such as "The Will To Kill" and "Eternal", which is further accentuated by new vocalist/guitarist Lee Wollenschlaeger's (Throne of Nails, Imperial Empire) understandable yet deeper vocal tone and songwriting contributions. As with "Dead Man's Path,” the record features artwork by German Latorres and was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö (Aspyhx, Marduk, Incantation) at Unisound.

In addition to Wollenschlager, “The 13th Beast” marks the recording debuts of bassist Josh Gibbs (Thrash Or Die, Solstice) and drummer Phil Cancilla (Bits of Gore, Primitive Brutality, Misericordiam), who join founding guitarist Phil Fasciana on the 11-track tour de force. "Lee was the missing link when I was searching for a new vocalist and guitarist," says Fasciana. "Each new member is a solid musician and songwriter sharing the same passion for extreme music MALEVOLENT CREATION has been striving for since 1987. I'm very proud of this album."

"This is the biggest honor I could ever be given," adds Wollenschlaeger. "The opportunity to front one of my all-time favorite bands, and an even bigger pleasure of jamming with such great people. We have created one of the most relentless albums of MALEVOLENT CREATION's history. As a fan, I know we are going to shock a lot of people at how intense this new album is. Done in a way only MALEVOLENT CREATION can!"

Praised this year by Rolling Stone magazine as “One of the Top 10 bands you need to know” for their “debaucherous, flamboyant flair,” SANTA CRUZ is a Finnish modern hard rock band formed with the mutual aspiration of playing their rear ends off and kicking people’s derrieres. Inspired initially by the likes of Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses, the young group developed a strong buzz through stupefying live shows and two well-received albums on Spinefarm Records where they took their throwback hard rock sound and combined it with elements of modern rock, punk and metal, put it in their own special blender, then iced the mix with blinding energetic performances and a healthy dash of bad attitude!
