Malevolent Creation - The Ten Commandments

Posted on Saturday, July 09, 2011

This is Malevolent Creation’s first album for Roadrunner and it’s an extremely fierce debut. Mark Simpson is really becoming an excellent drummer. And the vox of Bret Hoffmann are powerful and raw in a David Vincent (Morbid Angel) sort of way. This LP was recorded at Morrisound and engineered and mixed by Scott Burns, so that should tell you all you need to know about the recording quality and all that. The cover is by Dan Seagrave, so it’s cool too. Okay, now about the songs: Very brutal, usually fast. “Memorial Arrangements,” “Premature Burial,” “Thou Shall Kill!” and “Injected Sufferage” are all even really memorable, the others are only slightly less so. “Multiple Stab Wounds” is a bit weaker than the rest of this slayfest, but the lyrics are cool, as they are in all ten songs. This is an impressive first effort, and these guys are cool so pick this one up.
