Racing out of the gate is Malice Divine’s “Malicious Divinity”, which is the fastest song on their upcoming debut self-titled album due out February 19, 2021.
Assertive and exhilarating, this song has a very dark and exotic vibe to it. At a consistent 216 BPM throughout, “Malicious Divinity” is by far the most ferocious song out of the 9 tracks on the upcoming self-titled debut album. The band comments on the track:
“Despite its speed and intensity, there is still quite a bit of variety to be found within the song which ranges from technical riffing to straight-up black metal tremolo picking, tribal drum grooves to intense blast beats, and guitar solos that ranged from being extremely melodic to blistering fast shred. This song is guaranteed to pack the strongest of punches.”
The album as a whole is 9 tracks of incredibly melodic and empowering blackened death metal. It is also an incredibly dynamic album too, ranging from different speeds and intensities as well as different moods and emotions. You can also find some nylon string classical guitar playing within the album too.
With tinges of black metal and death metal, while abundant with melody, Malice Divine is recommended for fans of Skeletonwitch, Death, and Wintersun.
“Malicious Divinity” can be heard via its premiere on TheCirclePit HERE.
The full album “Malice Divine” drops on February 19, 2021.

Toronto, Canada’s Malice Divine is a solo project contrived by Ric Galvez who had always had the dream of entire creative control. He wanted to expand beyond being known as just as a lead guitarist. Ric Galvez has played in local bands previously and was a contestant on Banger TV’s Shredders of Metal Seasons 1 & 2.
Ric Galvez has a major in music from York University and through Malice Divine he shows off his prowess across instruments. His lyrics are inspired by psychology and spirituality as well as personal experiences especially those involving the overcoming of obstacles and hardships using the resulting verses as a form of empowerment.
The first offering from Malice Divine, a self-titled full length, comes in 2021 with Dylan Gowan (Vesperia, Iomair) playing session drums. There are plans to flesh out a live lineup for Divine Malice when the time is right.
What people can expect from seeing Malice Divine live is highly aggressive black and death metal inspired music with shreddy and virtuosic guitar solos adding a melodic layer that isn’t common in the genre.
Malice Divine’s self-titled debut album is due out February 19, 2021.
