It’s been a huge year for England’s Malefice. They’ve been to India to perform for thousands of insane Indian metalheads and documented the trip, played at Bloodstock ’09, toured Europe relentlessly and released their Metal Blade debut album, Dawn Of Reprisal. The Brits aren’t quite done yet as they have finished work on the video for one of the best tracks from the record called “Architect Of Your Demise”. Our friends over at MetalInjection.net premiered the video which you can watch below. The video was directed by Scott Fulton and Eyesmash Productions. Check it out and enjoy Malefice’s brand of quality, honest British metal!
