SPV/Steamhammer A&R;/Product manager Olly Hahn comments: "Malice was always underrated. With their two albums In The Beginning and License To Kill they created timeless US Metal and it's time to let all the younger fans know about this and show the older fans that Malice is still capable to write songs in the name of metal. I'm very happy that the band decided to be part of the growing SPV/Steamhammer family."
