Antithetical Out Today !!!

Finally the wait is over and Antithetical has been released everywhere today by Carbon Medien Records.

The path leading to this point has been long, it wasnt easy to pass some of life's adversities in the process, and through it 14 years flashed before our eyes. The burden of carrying such a colossal work on our shoulders for so many years is now gone but thinking in retrospective every single day we spent on the process to achieve the musical work depicted on Antithetical was extremely challenging and rewarding. Albums like this are tremendously demanding, life consuming and sometimes extremely painful to create. On the other hand the music is incredibly invigorating and inspiring. Love Us Or Hate Us Malevolence sounds like no other except for the similarities to the minds from where it has arisen, said Carlos Cariano.

Malevolence consists of Paulo Pereira (Keyboards & Programming), Aires Pereira (Bass), Fred Noel (Guitars), Carlos Cariano (Vox & Guitars) and Dirk Verbeuren (Drums). Antithetical is available via iTunes plus in a plethora of stores worldwide.

DEVOURED UNLIMITED NOW PLAYING

MALEVOLENCE press forward that DEVOURED UNLIMITED, the 2nd single extracted from their upcoming 3rd album ANTITHETICAL is now playing!

MALEVOLENCE had this to say about the audiovisual:

We wanted to go further by exploring additional ways to present our music. The concept this time is based in a raw model script build up by our singer & vocalist CARLOS CARIANO. The visual background inspired in a straight line by the script was designed by KKSTRUCTURES while the final PROJEKT assemblage was generated by our long time teammate EURICO BERNARDO. We feel very pleased with the outcome and the final results perfectly extrapolate the devastating aura of our brand new single.

For a product made completely in Portugal, based just on a couple of raw notes and scribbles, this is the perfect demonstration that no huge investments are required to achieve an entertaining product. DEVOURED UNLIMITED serves as a testimonial to contradict the actual economic and social chaos panorama overfilling the Portuguese shores, yet manages to prove that it is necessary to move on, to be perseverant, to explore imagination and dedicate energy to find new ways to continue on giving good entertainment and OPTIMISM to the masses!

 

The audiovisual now playing is presented by MALEVOLENCE in a direct association with KKSTRUCTURES and CARBON MEDIEN.
