MALEVOLENT CREATION have once again been rejoined by original bassist Jason Blachowicz. Blachowicz initially left on good terms to further his tattoo career, but the Death Metal sickness still runs deep in his veins! "Been in hiding, working in tattoo shops for quite some time now but my gut has been aching to do one of the things that I do best… spreading malevolence across the globe with my brothers in Metal", commented Blachowicz. "The evil in my blood has motivated me to dust the cobwebs off of my bass and commit to performing blasphemy and anger upon mine and everyone else’s ears once again. This is also for one of my inspirations, Peter Steele, and for all of the loyal Malevolent Creation fans who have been supporting us for 23 fucking years! Our 11th album, "Invidious Dominion", is going to rip the weak and feeble to shreds! See ya’ll on tour!! Bring the rum and git ‘er done!" MALEVOLENT CREATION’s 11th studio album " Invidious Dominion" was produced and recorded by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS, KRISIUN, GOATWHORE) at Mana Studios in Florida. It will be released on August 27 via Massacre Records in Europe and features the following tracks: ‘United Hate’, ‘Conflict Finalized’, ‘Slaughterhouse’, ‘Compulsive Face Breaker’, ‘Lead Spitter’, ‘Target Rich Environment’, ‘Antagonized’, ‘Born Again Hard’, ‘Corruptor’ and ‘Invidious Dominion’.

Necroharmonic Productions have just released a compilation CD of Swedish MASTICATION / EXHUMED, entitled "Wicked Material Sanity", that contains demo recordings of both bands. Members of both bands later resurfaced in such wellknown Swedish Death Metal acts such as EXCRUCIATE, UNANIMATED, NECROPHOBIC, DISMEMBER and NIFELHEIM. EXHUMED formed in 1990 and released just one demo ("Obscurity "). Later band members formed MASTICATION. This release also contains bonus tracks from their side band EGYPT. It is available now on CD (a vinyl version is about to follow later as well ). T-shirts are also in stock from both bands. Necroharmonic Productions will furthermore release a 7" EP from DISMA entitled "The Manifestation" in the not too distant future. For more info check out www.necroharmonic.com
