Mallavora are a fierce Bristol alt-metal outfit blazing their way onto the scene, using their platform to demand greater accessibility for disabled artists and fans.
As featured on BBC Radio 1, Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and in Alternative Press, Mallavora's huge riffs, anthemic choruses and electric energy at their live shows quickly convert rooms full of strangers into buzzing, dedicated fans eager to get their hands on some unique handmade merch.
Mallavora delivered a blistering show of power and strength with their EP ‘Origins’, released in May 2023, achieving over 350k Spotify streams and more than a million TikTok views.
The lead single 'Disorder' sparked a conversation about disability awareness in the music industry and has led to the band using their platform to advocate for improved accessibility.
The 2023 festival season saw Mallavora debut at 2000trees and Dot 2 Dot festivals, as well as featuring for a guest appearance at No Play Fest.
In October, Mallavora released a new single 'Villain' - which was celebrated by their biggest live performance to date, playing to a sold-out crowd at Bristol's Thekla.
Mallavora's sound is a visceral kaleidoscopic symphony of influences that spans metal subgenres and incorporates blues, punk and soul elements. Ultimately, Mallavora are doing something different. All are welcome, except for bigots.

“Disorder is a delicious brew of Korn and Halestorm that you never knew you needed: chonky riffs and more bite than a vampire finishing an intermittent fast.
What an actual tune.”
Alec Chillingworth, [Writer, Metal Hammer]
"This is a band that I am absolutely obsessed with, think filthy riffs and disabled rage. You are going to love it"
Sophie Smith [Kerrang! Radio]
