Monday, August 1 will mark the first time in over four years that Phil Fasciana and Brett Hoffmann, the co-founders of death metal band MALEVOLENT CREATION, will be face to face with each other and even share the stage together in the place where it all started nearly 15 years ago — Buffalo, New York.

Hoffmann, Scott O'Dell and the rest of the guys from DOWN THE DRAIN will be opening up for MALEVOLENT CREATION at Broadway Joe's in Buffalo as part of MALEVOLENT's Warkult U.S. tour.

For now, this is strictly a one-time deal, but with who knows what will happen it the future... but at least they are talking again... or are they?
