As we head from Lincoln to Sheffield for this weeks entry into our Black Map of the UK Underground Metal Scene, for anyone who has heard their stunningly good “Self Supremacy” it should have been pretty damned obvious it was always going to be Malevolence. It has been a phenomenal year for the Sheffield bruisers, first releasing the album in May 2017 and then heading on a tour cycle that has included a European run with Canadian Legends Despised Icon. Not to mention a raft of shows with the likes of Kubali Khan, up and coming Southern Lord signings Jesus Piece and Italian hardcore crew Brothers Till We Die. Frontman Alex Taylor has also dropped guest vocals on tracks from literally everyone and anyone who is up and coming in the scene from across Europe. If Malevolence maintain their current momentum and trajectory, they’ll be doing a full European Festival run next summer.
