Portuguese extreme progressive metallers MALEVOLENCE are proud to press forward that DEVOURED UNLIMITED, the 2nd single extracted from their upcoming 3rd album ANTITHETICAL will be available on Friday, January 25th.

DEVOURED UNLIMITED draws a parallel on wars linking the precedent atrocities known to men with the present state of destruction and the pandemonium that is about to come.


The audio episode verses about solid facts and renders the ironic ARBEIT MACHT FREI statement amongst the flagellation brought to the world by the Nazi regime.


The artwork for the brand new single was once more propelled ahead by the design bureau KKSTRUCTURES.

ANTITHETICAL album cover revealed

Portuguese extreme progressive metallers MALEVOLENCE uncovered the artwork for their extremely anticipated 3rd full length effort ANTITHETICAL.


The wreak havoc yet very striking illustrative piece was produced by the design bureau KKSTRUCTURES.  


By portraying the central album conceptual theme fueled by the art of conflict, KKSTRUCTURES in straight involvement with the band twisted an eye-catching visual parallelism dissecting the antithetical contrasts between the positive and negative extremes. 


Transcending the opposites by mode of individual revelation (summon insurgence) whilst erecting a differing perspective throughout exorcising thesis, the visual mind bending design brings forth in the process the social global context trivialization invoking an upheaval synthesis. The fire combustion epitomizes the universal purification (in need) as an unrelenting way of forward critical thinking. 


The follow-up to the 1999 critically acclaimed MARTYRIALIZED 2nd full length effort, was written and produced by Carlos Cariano, recorded by Paulo Pereira at 20M2SEA STUDIO (Portugal), mixed and mastered at WOODSHED STUDIO (Germany) by V. Santura (TRIPTYKON, OBSCURA, PESTILENCE). ANTITHETICAL features the line-up that recorded MARTYRIALIZED including core members Carlos Cariano (vocals/guitars), Aires Pereira (bass), Fred Noel (guitars), Paulo Pereira (keyboards) alongside session drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, JEFF LOOMIS).


MALEVOLENCE should hold the anticipation through the design representation until final track list, new music and release dates are revealed.
