Eternal was an album we produced ourselves and it was our first album with Pavement like you said and it was horrible, they couldn't even pay the bill for us to record at Morrisound. But we were able to spend a lot of time on the album but we really needed some guidance in there (laughs). But the album is raw and it rips and we still play a lot of those songs in the set and with Kyle singing them they sound even fucking heavier!Phil Fasciana / Malevolent Creation interview, 2004
MALEVOLENT CREATION released their fourth album on this day in 1995 through Pavement Music. Eternal was the first album with vocalist Jason Blachowicz who replaced Brett Hoffmann until his return in 1998.
Bret was gone at this point and Jay took over and it was a big adjustment and it took a little time but we were happy once we got there. We had Dave in the band for this album and that was so fucking killer as we now had a drummer in the band who could do everything we felt the songs deserved. So when he joined we felt it was a new era of the band and we wanted the music to keep flowing and for it to get even more intense and we were able to do that with Dave.Phil Fasciana / Malevolent Creation interview, 2004
