Where There Is Power There Is Always Resistance (G7 Welcoming Committee)
by Adrian Bromley
Easily one of Canada’s best kept secrets is Manitoba act Malefaction, a monstrous meshing of noisecore brutality, grindcore intensity, and politically-charged lyrics that rain down upon us with a maelstrom of fury. No one is safe as the band unleashes mountains of heaviness at the snap of a finger. Intelligence and heaviness don’t usually go hand in hand (unless, of course, you’re Napalm Death), and it’s almost orgasmic how it all unfolds into a blistering wall of white noise. I’ve championed this band from their early indie days, and it’s great knowing that this might be the disc to open them up to a bigger audience. Godly!
