Drummer Chris Allan-Whyte of the British metal band Malefice took a moment to speak with me about his Pearl snare drum he uses to obtain that hard hitting, brutal Malefice drum sound. Here is what Allan-Whyte had to say.
Drummer Chris Allan-Whyte of the British metal band Malefice took a moment out of his busy touring schedule to answer a few questions about the band’s sophomore release, Awaken The Tides. If you are not familiar with Malefice these guys play brutal, extremely technical metal that at times is mind blowing. They have shared the stage with bands such as Anthrax and Arch Enemy and are currently on tour in Europe. Here’s what Allan-Whyte had to say.

Metal Blade recording artists Malefice have just released their label debut, Dawn Of Reprisal on March 3rd, 2009. Let me tell you something, this CD is a menacing masterpiece of pure destruction. This unbelievably heavy collection of tunes dishes out 37 minutes of punishing brutality from the very first song. Guitarist Ben Symmons took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions for PureGrainAudio.
