BLASPHEMOUS CREATION

"Shadows of Evil" (Self-produced; 2008)

Reviewed by Christopher J. Kelter

 

Just by looking at the logo you know what you’re getting with Blasphemous Creation; as far as distinct clues go, the band’s name doesn’t hurt either.

Blasphemous Creation plays brutal death metal that is raw, fast, and semi-chaotic. So you can score “Shadows of Evil” for the old-school crowd. “Shadows of Evil,” a four-track EP, adds a touch of classic thrash metal that lends a sense of familiarity to the proceedings yet you’d never consider this thrash at all. The vocals are harsh grunts which is to be expected, but the lead guitars have a sort of Slayer-like out-of-control mayhem that is simply ear candy.

“Shadows of Evil” was produced by Blasphemous Creation and engineered by Josh Williams. This EP balances the raw, under-produced sound favored by the originators of the black metal genre with the clarity of modern recording techniques.

Blasphemous Creation: Isaac Wilson on vocals and guitars, Ben Brown on guitars and backing vocals, Jed Wilson on bass, and Travis Edwards on drums.

"Rest in Pieces" (Self-produced; 2006)

Blasphemous Creation combines old-school death metal and blackened thrash for a sound designed for fans that truly love the underground sound.

The six tracks on “Rest in Pieces” are quickly paced and prove that relentless riffing never grows old. Even though it’s hard to go wrong with the old school death metal style, adding in blackened thrash elements can get tricky. Songs combining these two styles are often sound disjointed – that’s generally not the case with “Rest in Pieces.” “Rest in Pieces” provides some evidence that combining old-school death metal and blackened thrash can be enjoyable. As implied earlier, fans of underground death metal will find a lot to like with “Rest in Pieces.”

“Rest in Pieces” was produced, recorded, and mixed by Fleshgrinder. 

Blasphemous Creation: Fleshgrinder on vocals and lead guitar, Corpseripper on rhythm guitar, Soul Reaper on bass, and Bonekrusher on drums.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
