Dale Butler from Malefice Thrash Hits

Earlier this year, we were minding our own business over on Twitter when we notice Dale Butler from Malefice kicking up a rage over the attitudes of certain quarters of the UK metal scene. Never ones to turn down the opportunity for some good ol’ fashioned shit-stirring, we dropped Dale an email and asked him whether he fancied writing about what had got him so angry with a few more words than 140 characters would allow.

Doc, sir, as far as Thrash Hits is concerned, you’re one of the good guys.

During the creation of The Black CrownSuicide Silence have been talking a lot about their decision to ditching many of the digital processes used by their previous producer, Machine. This time around they have instead teamed up with Steve Evett (Dillinger Escape Plan, Architects) to create an album that closer reflects the sound of their live performances. That decisions has paid-off by the truckload.
