Uncreation - _Uncreation_
(Black Dragon / Repulse, 1997)
by: Paul Schwarz (4 out of 10)
Uncreation are yet another band playing brutal-as-fuck NY style death metal. Don't get me wrong, I like this style, but a) they are not the best at it by a long shot and b) it doesn't really provide that wide a berth for variation and by not altering the formula set down by bands like Suffocation and Immolation one bit, Unnatural build themselves a solid lead balloon. Only a strange rant at the end of _Uncreation_ (where it sounds like Phil Anselmo has waltzed into the studio and spilled forth his irritations) provides any surprises. Bands need to either push boundaries or play the original so well it sounds new in a style like brutal death metal. If bands don't do one or the other, we might as well just have them releasing bad Suffocation tribute albums and there really would be no point in doing that.
