Guest review by

You have before you, quite possibly the greatest combination of Death and Thrash Metal ever composed. Some might think that that is a rather bold statement, but I am by no means overrating this masterpiece. It is full of very fast and energetic guitar work, surely how the Malevolent camp got to be known as "Slayer On Acid". One might find a lack of variety in the riffs, but it's nothing to bitch about, hell of a lot more variety than some Death Metal bands, and much more than the current bands nowadays. They didn't bring a whole lot of new ideas to the table, but what really separates them from the others is Bret Hoffmann's unique and intense vocal performance. I love all aspects of this album, but the main reason you should give it a listen is to hear Bret at his best, along with their second effort. It's sad to hear "Stillborn" (their third album) after the drugs had become a bigger interest than the music. It is awesome that he is now with Malevolent Creation once again; he is the true voice no doubt. Now, a break down of everything that makes this album such a classic slab of Death Metal…

  I really do like this record a lot. Usually vocals like this and from other bands of the era usually annoy the shit out of me but these are fantastic.

Rating: 8 This album and Retribution are two of the finest DM albums ever written. So good in fact that I've never listened to any of their others in fear of disappointment.
