Bio:

Malice is an American heavy metal band formed in the early 80's best known for their appearance on the first Metal Massacre compilation and a pair of albums on Atlantic Records. Their heavily European influenced style elicited instant comparisons to Judas Priest due to vocalist James Neal sounding uncannily like Rob Halford in addition to fielding a guitar duo in the Tipton/Downing mode, with Malice's Jay Reynolds looking like a dead ringer for K.K. Downing.Malice formed in Portland, Oregon in the early 80's when former The Ravers guitarist Jay Reynolds assembled an embryonic line-up consisting of vocalist James Neal, future Wild Dogs duo, Matt McCourt on bass and Deen Castronovo on drums, and Kip Doran on guitar. Reynolds next decided to make the move to Los Angeles, soon to be joined by fellow guitarist Mick Zane, to start an all original metal band. When the duo was unable to find suitable players for their new venture, they convinced Neal, bassist Mark Behn and drummer Pete Laufman to move down from Portland as well after the initial Malice demo caused a stir and garnered label interest from Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records."Captive of Light" and "Kick You Down" from the demo were both selected to appear on Metal Massacre I alongside tracks by Metallica, Ratt, Steeler and others. Malice made their L.A. live debut in November 1982 at the Troubadour headlining a bill with Metallica and Pandemonium as opening acts. Other memorable L.A. shows included opening up for then new major label signees Armored Saint at Perkins Palace in Pasadena, CA in the spring of 1984.Adding drummer Cliff Carothers, formerly of Snow, in place of Pete Laufman, Malice set about recording new demos with producer Michael Wagener and soon found themselves in the midst of a label bidding war. Eventually, the band signed with Atlantic Records in the summer of 1984 and released their debut album, In The Beginning..., in 1985. It consisted of songs the band had cut with Wagener and material recorded with Ashley Howe producing.Malice teamed up with producer Max Norman for their sophomore album, License to Kill, released in 1987. Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson of Megadeth and Black 'n Blue's Jaime St. James, Tommy Thayer and Jeff Warner provided backing vocals on two songs, "License to Kill" and "Chain Gang Woman." The band toured with Alice Cooper, W.A.S.P. and Motörhead, among others. They were also the support act for Slayer on their 1987 "Reign In Pain" European tour, an ill-fated trip that saw Malice faced with open hostility from the headliner's rabid crowds which forced the band to drop off the bill once the trek reached Germany.In late 1987, Jay Reynolds left the band to join Megadeth in place of Chris Poland but was ultimately ousted several months later when bandleader Dave Mustaine decided on hiring Jay's former roommate and guitar teacher, Jeff Young, instead. The band also parted ways with James Neal and carried on with a new vocalist, Mark Weitz, but finally split up in 1989.The 1988 film Vice Versa featured Malice in a concert sequence, filmed in Champagne, IL, performing "Crazy In The Night".Metal Blade would issue a third Malice release, Crazy In The Night, in 1989. It contained 3 songs recorded with Neal and "Vice Versa", with producer Paul Sabu providing lead vocals.Following the demise of Malice, Jay Reynolds formed War Party with former Megadeth drummer Chuck Behler.Mick Zane and Mark Behn would team up with former Black 'n Blue drummer Pete Holmes and vocalist Mark Isom under the name Monster.The band's sole album, Through the Eyes of the World, surfaced on Long Island Records in Europe in 1995 and on Pulse Records in the U.S. in 1997.In 1999, EastWest Japan re-issued both In The Beginning... and License to Kill on CD; U.S. label Wounded Bird would follow suit in 2004.Jay Reynolds joined a revamped Metal Church line-up in early 2004 and recorded 2 albums with the band, Weight of the World (2004) and A Light in the Dark (2006), before exiting again in 2008.In 2006, Malice announced that they would be doing a reunion tour but canceled a number of European tour dates the following year. The band did perform a handful of shows in the U.S. utilizing the services of Last Empire and future Vicious Rumors vocalist Brian Allen. The band finally returned to Europe in April 2011 to co-headline the Keep It True XIV festival in Germany with new vocalist James Rivera (Helstar, Vicious Rumors).In 2008, Malice issued an archives release, The Rare and Unreleased, on Retrospect Records containing all 4 songs from the Crazy In The Night EP and various early demos.In late 2011, it was announced that Malice had signed a record deal with Germany's SPV/Steamhammer;Robert Cardenas of Agent Steel was confirmed as the band's new live bass player.New Breed of Godz, containing 4 new songs and re-recordings of 8 songs culled from In The Beginning... and License to Kill, was released in May 2012.

Album:

Malice’s greatest influence is Judas Priest, clearly from the twin-guitar attack and James Neal’s howling Rob Halford-esque wail. When Neal gets into falsetto mode, it’s like Halford stumbled into a garage rehearsal by accident. Much of In The Beginning... is like a copy of what Judas Priest was doing in the early ‘80s.In The Beginning... avoids the dreaded guitar synthesizers that plagued Turbo, so Malice deserve some credit for that. This is pretty straightforward metal, with none of the keyboard/synth gloss that metal toyed with in the ‘80s. They could write a catchy anthem, which could be heard on “Godz Of Thunder” and “Squeeze It Dry.” Gang chants are prevalent, and Neal uses the choruses to put his iron vocal pipes through the grinder.There is a wild beast made of untapped speed that the band lets out in periodic bursts. “Air Attack” is three minutes of an airplane careening into the listener’s ear, while “Hellrider” sticks to the ground with a motorcycle engine revving the song into a momentum-building joyride. There are simply not enough moments like this, as the band likes to stay in the mid-tempo region more often than not.“No Haven For The Raven” is the token ballad, an overdone trademark today that was on the verge of becoming the same way in the ‘80s. There’s the clean guitars leading the verses along, Neal toning back the shrieks for his “serious” voice, and the outburst of emotion self-contained in the chorus. By-the-books and syrupy in its execution, the ballad still resonates because of the band’s diligence in not just being a walking cliche.Malice released one more album, License To Kill, before disbanding for the first time. Their sound bordered on Judas Priest worship, but there were some clever ideas used that bridged the gaps between glam, speed and heavy metal. Those who enjoyed New Breed Of Godz should take the time to go back to In The Beginning.... For going in the direction Judas Priest should have followed in the mid ‘80s, In The Beginning... gets the nod for this week’s Retro Recommendation.

Album:

The second Malice album... they definitely get their shit together far better on this album, losing almost all of the cheesy rocker-ish musical tendencies. Sure the lyrics tend to be total 80s, but this album is an even more apt comparison to Defenders of the Faith than In the Beginning was. In fact, it doesn't even fade by the end like Defenders.The songwriting highs aren't quite as high as the debut album - there is no Godz of Thunder here. But there is Licence to Kill, which is a very nice efficient-speed rocker that's way too fun to sing along to, and also Chain Gang Woman, which is just vicious 80s-styled speed metal. The driving riff assault in here is incredible. Against the Empire is also in a similar vein and quite good, while Sinister Double is a nice midpaced opener.So yeah we start with two midpaced songs, both very good, and then get to the blazing Against the Empire, before giving way to the slightly silly Vigilante. Not "Squeeze it Dry", I'd say it's about on the same level as No Haven fort the Raven... then we're pummeled by Chain Gang Woman for several minutes, then get to Christine, which is based on the Stephen King novel if I recall correctly. This song and the three after it are midpaced above-average 80s metal songs.Some nice over-the-top vocals by James "Rob H." Neal, and great lead guitar by Mick "KK" Zane and Jay "Tipton" Reynolds, and we've got ourselves the album that a certain British band could've put out instead of Turbo. Sure, there are some definite LA-isms in the sound, as opposed to the more polished NWOBHM-ish style of mid-80s Priest... in other words, this is what would happen if Dokken suddenly grew 8 foot tall testicles.Good album - very good. Nice combination of speed, melody, and riff work. You like Priest, you'll like this.
