alevolent Creation relocated to California from Buffalo, N.Y. soon after their founding and secured a deal with 'R.C Records' under the management of Bret Hoffman (vocals), Phil Fasciana (guitar), Jeff Juskiewicz (guitar), Jason Blacowicz (bass) and Mark Simpson (drums).
Malevolent Creation's brand of death metal was a blistering ear shredding hurricane that would soon after their debut and sophomore efforts The Ten Commandments (1991) and Retribution (1992) attract the attention of 'Roadrunner Records' to release Stillborn (1993) featuring Job Rubin replacing Rob Barrett (ex-Solstice; guitar) who had joined with Alex Marquez (ex-Solstice; drums) who in turn had replaced Juskiewicz and Simpson respectively.
Their tenure with 'Roadrunner' would end now, as would Hoffman's and Marquez who were replaced with John Paul Soares (guitar) and Derek Roddy (ex-Nile/ex-Hate Eternal; drums) respectively with Blachowicz now taking over the vocal duties. Eternal (1996), featuring an improved and more subtly complex music, was released on independent label 'Pavement'.
Joe Black (1996) saw a couple of near-complete line-up changes with the album featuring Phil Fasciana (guitar), John Rubin (guitar), Jason Blachowicz (bass/vocals), Mark Van Erp (bass), and several drummers such as the returning Mark Simpson (drums), Alex Marquez (drums) and Larry Hawke (drums).
In Cold Blood (1997) marked the arrival of the first of what would end off being another near complete line-up change with Phil Fasciana (guitar), John Paul Soars (guitar), Jason Blachowicz (bass/vocals) and Derek Roddy (drums).After the release, the act was revamped with Fasciana now also taking on keyboards with the returning Rob Barrett (guitar), Culross and Hoffman as well as the addition of Gordon Simms (bass) and ex-Suffocation drummer Dave Culross to debut on The Fine Art Of Murder (1999). Envenomed (2000), featuring new vocalist Kyle Symons, would be their millennium project and their tenth year in the business of exploring the extremes of heavy metal that was followed by the equally devastating The Will To Kill (2002) with Justin DiPinto replacing Dave Culross, and the soon-after replacement of Ariel Alvaradoshortly thereafter. The Best Of Malevolent Creation "Best of..." compilation followed in 2003.
