Malice  


With two Metal Massacre tracks and a major label contract under their belts, the Los Angeles (by way of Portland, Oregon) band Malice seemed destined for stardom. The band had a strong Judas Priest influence, thanks in no small part to James Neal's standout vocals, and their style seemed tailor-made for the growing 80's metal scene. For whatever reason, though, the band never made it to the upper echelon of metal -- their albums were fine and the band had a reasonable fan base, but the label lost interest in them, and after being dropped from Atlantic, a final EP was recorded and Malice disappeared ...

... but not for good. In October 2006 came word that the band was back in action, featuring three of the original five along with a new drummer and vocalist. As yet no new material has been released, but a compilation of odds and ends was released in 2008, and some reunion shows have been played.
