Malevolent Creation - _Eternal_
(Pavement, 1995)
by: Gino Filicetti (9 out of 10)
This album really impressed me; after listening to it, I came to the conclusion that THIS is what death metal should sound like. From the slow paced opener 'No Salvation' to the no holds barred closer 'Tasteful Agony' this CD simply smokes! Although there is some lead work present on this release, it does not dominate the music so the absolute death metal purists out there need not worry about this band 'selling out'. Hailing from Florida, Malevolent Creation succeed in breaking out of the 'Florida Death Metal' stereotype achieving a sound that is more in the vein of various European bands. This could be attributed to the fact that unlike most Florida bands, Malevolent Creation refused to record at Morrisound Studios. This album is full of break neck paced songs such as 'To Kill', mid paced songs like 'Unearthly' and just about everything in between. The music however is never 'too fast'. Some variety is also introduced with various samples, and also some distorted vox in 'To Kill'. Overall I think this album would make a find addition to any CD library.
