MALEVOLENT CREATION picture
Arising from the death metal hotbed of Florida in the early '90s (but originally from Buffalo, NY), Malevolent Creation tend to be somewhat overlooked in discussions of groups who helped define the sound and style of American death metal.

Initially inspired by the sonic and lyrical extremity of Slayer, the group landed a deal with Roadrunner Records at the dawn of the '90s, featuring a lineup of vocalist Brett Hoffmann, guitarists Phil Fasciana and Jeff Juskiewicz, bassist Jason Blachowicz, and drummer Mark Simpson. Their 1991 debut album, The Ten Commandments, became something of a landmark in the death metal underground, expanding on the early work of Slayer and fellow Floridians Death.

Its sequel, 1992's Retribution, was just as strong, featuring two new members added from Solstice -- guitarist Rob Barrett (who replaced Juskiewicz) and drummer Alex Marquez. Barrett and Marquez were replaced by John Rubin (who had been

MALEVOLENT CREATION Retribution

Album · 1992 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Retribution" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US death metal act Malevolent Creation. The album was released through Roadrunner Records in April 1992, almost to date one year after the release of the band´s debut full-length studio album "The Ten Commandments (1991)". Quite a few lineup changes have taken place in that year though as Alex Marquez has replaced Mark Simpson on the drums and Rob Barrett has replaced Jeff Juszkiewicz as the band´s second guitarist. Both new members came from a stint with Solstice. Constant lineup changes would be somewhat of a trend throughout the band´s history.

Lineup changes or not, the music style isn´t that different from the music style on the debut album. It´s energetic death metal with a brutal thrashy edge. I guess "Retribution" is slightly more death metal tinged than "The Ten Commandments (1991)", but we´re talking minor details. "Retribution" is what you can safely call a death metal "classic" and it´s widely considered the best, or at least among the best albums by Malevolent Creation. Listening to "Retribution" it´s pretty obvious why that is. While the music isn´t wildly original, Malevolent Creation still have a sound that sets them apart from the pack. The brutal and energetic thrash tinged riffing is one of the reasons, but it´s probably mostly due to the distinct sounding raw/semi-growling yet completely intelligible vocals by Brett Hoffmann. The band are exceptionally well playing and especially new drummer Alex Marquez brings a more precise/aggressive rythmic attack to the band´s sound (compared to the drumming on the debut).

Tracks like "Eve of the Apocalypse", "Slaughter of Innocence" and "Coronation of Our Domain" are classics in the band´s repetoire, but "Retribution" is both a consistent and strong album throughout it´s 34:09 minutes long playing time. And yes the music isn´t the most varied or adventurous sounding in the world, but it´s delivered with great conviction and relentless aggression. The album is well produced too, featuring a typical brutal early nineties Scott Burns production, that´s designed to make your ears bleed and your bowels implode. A 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.

MALEVOLENT CREATION Invidious Dominion

Album · 2010 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Invidious Dominion" is the 11th full-length studio album by US death metal act Malevolent Creation. The album was released through Massacre Records in August 2010. I´m tempted to say "as usual" there are a couple of changes in the lineup since the last album as Gio Geraca has resplaced guitarist John Rubin and Gus Rios has replaced drummer Dave Culross. The Latter left to play for Suffocation. It doesn´t change much though as both are suitable replacements with the needed playing skills.

The music on the album is US death metal with a brutal thrashy edge and as such there´s nothing new under the sun compared to earlier releases by the band. It´s still like listening to a steroid pumped death metal version of Slayer. The return of lead vocalist Brett Hoffmann, on the predecessor "Doomsday X (2007)", boosted the band´s sound and they suddenly sounded more vital than they had done for years. That positive development is continued on "Invidious Dominion", which in many ways is the natural successor to "Doomsday X (2007)". The focus in the music is as always on relentless aggression and fast playing with Brett Hoffmann´s distinct and intelligible growls in front. He is one of those few growling vocalists on the scene with a completely distinct sound. Without him Malevolent Creation just aren´t the same.

The sound production is raw and powerful, the musicianship is strong and the songwriting effective too. "Invidious Dominion" is not quite as varied as "Doomsday X (2007)" and because of that just slightly less interesting than the predecessor, but still a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved. A great aggressive and energetic death metal album this one.

MALEVOLENT CREATION Doomsday X

Album · 2007 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Doomsday X" is the 10th full-length studio album by US death metal act Malevolent Creation. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in July 2007. "Doomsday X" marks the return of original vocalist Brett Hoffman, who returns for a third stint with Malevolent Creation. He replaces Kyle Symons who sang on "The Will to Kill (2002)" and "Warkult (2004)". But also bassist Jason Blachowicz makes a return as well as guitarist John Rubin. The former hasn´t been part of the band since "In Cold Blood (1997)", where he also sang, while the former hasn´t recorded with the band since "Eternal (1995)". The usual suspects are drummer Dave Culross and guitarist, bandleader and only member of the band that has always been part of the lineup Phil Fasciana. So while this is not a reunion of the original members, it´s as close to the real thing as it gets.

...and it´s heard..."Doomsday X" is the sound of a revitalized band. Faster, more aggressive and out for blood. Malevolent Creation are back in business after releasing a string of albums that have only occasionally and too seldom hit the excellent mark. I´ll go as far as to say that this is their best release since "Eternal (1995)" (their 4th full-length studio album). Tracks like "Cauterized", "Deliver My Enemy", "Strength in Numbers" and "Bio-Terror" are simply killer death metal tracks full of aggressive energy, caustic snarling growls, brutal and fast riffing, and even faster drumming. The fact that the album features the most powerful and well sounding production that has grazed a Malevolent Creation album in years is not exactly an issue either. The music style is the same as always, which means a combination of US death metal and fast and aggressive thrash metal greatly influenced by mid- to late eighties Slayer. As I mentioned above fast playing and blast beats are a big part of the band´s sound, but they fully understand the importance of variation, and the music features heavier mid-paced parts too and most tracks feature tempo changes and breaks to keep the music entertaining.

While the music style is no surprise and the fact that the band are well playing isn´t exactly a surprise either, the high quality of the material and the conviction behind the delivery did surprise me quite a bit. "Doomsday X" is the return to form I´ve been waiting for since the mid-nineties, only to be met by one more or less standard sounding release after another. Thanks boys!...and a 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.

MALEVOLENT CREATION Warkult

Album · 2004 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Warkult" is the 9th full-length studio album by US death metal act Malevolent Creation. It´s the second album to feature lead vocalist Kyle Symons, but it would also be the last album with him behind the microphone as Brett Hoffman would return for another stint (his third) with the band on the next album "Doomsday X (2007)". "Warkult" was released through Nuclear Blast Records in July 2004.

The music on the album is death metal with brutal thrashy tendencies. Well played, decently produced and relatively well written. It´s certainly not the most interesting nor surprising album by Malevolent Creation, but it´s another solid release, delivering the goods. "Warkult" is the sound of a band fully content with the style they play and with little intent to visit new territory. Of course that´s not surprising as that attitude has more or less been the premise since day one. Sometimes it has worked wonders and sometimes the band´s releases have been more in the solid/standard department. I think "Warkult" belongs in the least interesting end of the band´s discography while still reaching a decent quality and entertainment level. It´s a mix of songwriting that could have been more memorable and a sound production that lacks slightly in the punch department. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is fair.

UMUR
"Joe Black" is a compilation album release by US death metal act Malevolent Creation. The compilation was released through Pavement Music in October 1996. "Joe Black" is not a "best of" compilation but rather a collection of rarities and unreleased material.

The compilation features 10 tracks. 3 tracks recorded during the "Eternal (1995)" recording sessions, 3 industrial tinged remixes of tracks from "Eternal (1995)", a demo recording of "Genetic Affliction" from "Stillborn (1993)", a cover version of "Raining Blood" by Slayer recorded during the "Stillborn (1993)" recording sessions and 2 tracks from the band´s 1990 demo, which was the demo that earned them their first label contract with Roadrunner Records.

The 3 unreleased/outtakes from the "Eternal (1995)" recording sessions are all of high quality and could easily have made it unto that album. The industrial tinged remixes of the 3 tracks from "Eternal (1995)" are probably an aquired taste for the "regular" death metal fan, but I think the quality is decent and the tracks are pretty enjoyable. It´s interesting to hear a band as musically conservative as Malevolent Creation venture into something different. One of the most interesting tracks on "Joe Black" is the demo version of "Genetic Affliction" from "Stillborn (1993)" though. I think that track once and for all shows that "Stillborn (1993)" could have been a killer album without the odd sound production. In the other end of the spectrum the cover of "Raining Blood" by Slayer is pretty weak. I´m not entertained.

The two demo tracks from the band´s 1990 demo are great listening though. The tracks feature a semi-professional sound production (they were recorded at Morrisound Recording, Tampa, Florida) and are delivered with passion and conviction. Sadly the band have chosen to omit the third track from that demo titled "Decadence Within". My guess is because Roadrunner Records probably owned/owns the publishing rights as the track in this particular version was featured on the Roadrunner Records compilation album "At Death's Door - A Collection Of Brutal Death Metal (1990)". The "regular" studio versions of all three tracks are featured on the debut full-length studio album "The Ten Commandments (1991)".

So while the quality drops a couple of times during the playing time, "Joe Black" is overall a great rarities/unreleased compilation album and a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.
