Minsk, Belarus based dark Deathcore/Metalcore band BLEEDING MALICE have shared their new single “Stillborn Hope” from the upcoming debut full-length album “Thy Kingdom Come”, and today we’re pleased to give you the band’s special commentary about the track and its meaning below!
Formed at the beginning of 2020 by composer/bassist Olga Kann and singer Alex Rabets, BLEEDING MALICE comes as a crushing monster that combines elements of dark hardcore, deathcore, metalcore. The band’s lyris contain social issues, philosophy and religion, psycho-emotional experiences.
“The title of the track fully reflects everything that happens, when from the very beginning you no longer believe in anything and hope for nothing.” – comments the band. “When you wander through life as a revived corpse. Finding no place anywhere. When nothing matters. This is not a story with a happy ending; the person decides to give up. And this is also to some extent a rethinking of the tragedy of Sisyphus, of absurdity of life.”
“And this is also to some extent a rethinking of the tragedy of Sisyphus, of absurd of life. It’s rethinking of the classical philosophical question of Albert Camus. To decide whether life is worth living is to answer the fundamental question of philosophy. “Stillborn Hope” is 8th track in the upcoming album, but the final track will give answer for this fundamental question. The mood of album is mostly depressive, agressive and evil. There’s no place for hope. But this album may give for desperate people, understanding and acceptance. Understanding that they will never walk alone.There are different sides to the album, and we want to believe that it will become a revelation for those who are looking for their meaning and themselves in the world.”
Music of “Thy Kingdom Come” is mainly focused around Blackened Deathcore with a lot of influences and atmosphere from Dark Hardcore and Post Metal. It contains an onslaught of heavy moments intertwined with memorable melodies. Slaughter rhythm section with juicy bass and mad drums brought significant sound density. In some parts guitars hit aggressively hard, in other parts come out hypnotic structures which give the desired atmosphere depending on the mood of the song. The speed and depressive slow and middle-speed moments present equally. Fast-paced and evil actions are paired with touching ballads in equal measure.
The expressive vocals will delight you with a huge variety from extreme heartbreaking screams to the classic brutal growl and soulful voice of the preacher behind the scenes. Lyrical themes of their music is about questioning faith, about the existential issues of a person who is left alone in the struggle with his inner demons. When there is no turning back and no redemption is granted. “Thy Kingdom Come” is the 9-song story about a man with his sins and weaknesses, who for a moment realized that the scales were irrevocably tilted to one side. Memories rush one by one, but the step into emptiness has already been taken…

Left to rot
At the bottom
The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak
After each breath I am eager to seek
A glimpse of hope in my temple of sin
Whole world around me is now empty and dim
Evil consume my soul,
Can’t deny the acts of violation
Never-ending shriek of pain,
A fragile man blinded by temptation
It was all in vain,
Leave me in disdain.
Hatred and shame,
I feel only pain.
My mind draws hideous pictures
My only wish is to stop affliction
Fear collapses my lungs to suffocation
There is no escape from these hallucinations
By crawling on your knees,
You won’t get the liberation.
Fate written by blood,
You must be left in desperation.
