Australia’s savage thrash/death veterans In Malice’s Wake release their new album, The Blindness of Faith. Listen to The Blindness of Faith in full on the two webzines premiering the album: Metal.de & Metal-Roos.
Singer and guitarist Shaun Farrugia shares that the band is extremely proud of The Blindness of Faith: “It captures everything that I feel represents the spirit of In Malice’s Wake. It is 10 extreme songs that combine crushing riffs, a darkness through melodies and atmosphere, and is just a collection of work that we are rapt to have our name on. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to check it out and support us!”

In Malice’s Wake have established themselves as the dominant thrash/death metal force for well over a decade in Australia. Each full-length release has pushed further into darker and heavier territory. The combined trademark riffing style, intense speed, blasts/tremolo picking, and haunting melodies are integral to the recognisable sound of In Malice’s Wake. More importantly, it is the memorable songwriting and originality that the band has become truly renowned for. Each track speaks its own story and stays with the listener long after the album has ceased to play. In the current intensely populated marketplace – great songs is the only currency of value.
In Malice’s Wake have toured Australia and New Zealand and supported many of the greats, including Bloodbath, Destruction, At The Gates, The Haunted, Voivod, Napalm Death, Toxic Holocaust, Angelus Apatrida, Goatwhore, Forbidden, Krisiun and Warbringer. In Malice’s Wake regularly headline Melbourne shows and festivals, and the band is renowned for its infamously violent pit and energetic fan base. In Malice’s Wake have a built a ravenous following via an old-school approach – sincere, destructive music and endless live assaults. The live CD-DVD feature that was released “Visions of Live Destruction” was a tribute to the incredible fan base the band have in Melbourne.
