Dutch death metal band BLOODPHEMY will release their fifth studio album “Dawn of Malevolence” on November 17th 2023 via Non Serviam Records.
Drawing influence from Florida, Sweden and their heritage, these Dutchmen distinguish themselves with aggressive death metal mixing modern and classic styles with heavy atmosphere. Prepare yourself for cavernous deep roaring vocals, heavy slow crawling dirges and up-tempo psychotic slaughtering that will keep you banging your head. Telling dark, psychotic tales in both their lyrics and through their live shows. Steamrolling, rumbling and very dark death metal!
Today the band unveils the first single “From Suffering to Violence” accompanied by a visualizer video.

Dawn of Malevolence” is a concept album as the band explains: “A dark and twisted story of a young boy whose only memory is of the horrible Asylum he grew up in; among the insane, the violent and a sadistic staff. Through years of suffering and torture he finally is able to feign normalcy and is eventually released into a world he doesn’t know or understand.
This threatening world triggers flashbacks of anger and violence from his earliest youth as he finally grasps a glimpse of the past that always seemed just out of reach.
Overwhelmed by these experiences he spirals down further into madness, killing people around him and ending up in the same horrible place where we was locked all that time. This time, armed with a new found lust for blood he swears to kill everyone there who has wronged him and set out on a journey of revenge“.
On the first single “From Suffering to Violence” the band states: “All the blood, violence, and suffering cause a further return of memories of his parents and the horrible things he had to endure from them.
Armed with his new sense of purpose he sets out into the world, swearing revenge and those that have wronged him“.
“Dawn of Malevolence” will be available as cassette, digipak CD, limited green vinyl and digital.
