In addition, MALEVOLENT CREATION has revealed that bassist Jason Blachowicz is no longer a member the group. According to the band, "Dave and Jay have prior job obligations and could not try to work things out. Best of luck to them."

The group continues in a statement, "MALEVOLENT CREATION has a new drummer from the South Florida scene that is amazing. Dave isn't the only good metal drummer out there. MALEVOLENT CREATION compare this drummer to a Gene Hoglan-type of style and is a brutally fast hard-hitter. The names of the drummer and bass player will be [announced] soon.

"Thanks to all the fans who still support MALEVOLENT CREATION. This band is a machine and will finally be touring relentlessy all of 2008. See you on tour! No one can destroy this MALEVOLENT CREATION!!!!"

The CD was recorded and engineered at Mercury Recording Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida by longtime friend and producer (and sometimes session member) Gus Rios, and is said to be the most diverse MALEVOLENT CREATION album recorded to date and "without a doubt their fastest!!" Mick Thomson, guitarist for SLIPKNOT, contributed a "ripping" guitar solo to the song "Deliver My Enemy".
