Malhavoc Announces Their Return

The wife of a very good friend of mine would often talk about this band whenever the subject of heavy music would come up. Although I can’t remember for sure, I think she may have known some of the members personally.

Recently posted on Blabbermouth, Malhavoc announced their return, along with a new mix of an old song on their MySpace page. It’s funny how nostalgia works, as the remix of the song “Release” on their MySpace page has a very classic (but not dated) sound to it, the kind of thing that transports you back to the late 80's/early 90's rise of industrial.

I haven’t really followed pure industrial that much, since I’ve grown up being a metal guy most of my life. Even though industrial metal seems to have lost a lot of its popularity in the 90's, there are still quite a few notable bands doing a very extreme take on industrial metal in the underground, like Tristwood, Aborym, The Project Hate, The Berserker and Anaal Nathrakh.

Malhavoc stated in their post on Blabbermouth that they were the first industrial band, but I think Skinny Puppy might have something to say about that...
