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).
Whilst preparing to exorcise a comprehensive ANTITHETICAL TEASER upon the masses featuring audio selections from the broad-spectrum body of work (7 songs = 43 minutes), MALEVOLENCE should hold the anticipation through the design representation until final track list, new music and release dates are revealed.
