A HEAVY metal band will get audience members headbanging when they shake a historic venue to its core.

Malevolence, hailing from Sheffield, will perform at Colchester Arts Centre, in Church Street, on August 15,

The rockers, formed in 2010, have released three studio albums, an EP, and established their own record label.

A spokesman for the event said: “Expect a sludge-ridden, toxic hybrid of post-hardcore, thrash, metalcore and Texas blues.”

Tickets cost £15 and can be purchased by visiting colchesterartscentre.com.
