Beyond Creation are a relatively young technical death metal band hailing from no other place than Quebec, the Mecca of tech death, Canada, the home of the awesomely weird musical ideas.

The Aura, their debut, is a death metal album but a very non-intrusive one, and even somehow pleasant to the ear. Although the extreme elements typical for technical death metal are present, the music overall has a very melodic framework and a great sense of direction; so, it is very easy to listen to, particularly due to what Beyond Creation play and how they do it. I like to think about their music in terms of soundscapes because the songs sound as if all the instruments blended into one tightly intertwined whole. This, I believe, happens due to a few factors.

Haha, neither do I to be honest. I gave it a 5 though so it couldn't have been a positive one =P

wouldn't this be considered more of "Progressive Technical Deathcore"? Considering the dual vocals and such?


In a word, no. I'm actually not even completely sure why the progressive tag is on this, maybe just cause there is some long songs.

Deathcore?

Yeah I don't quite understand that. I also don't know how "dual vocals" would change the style of an artist at all.

Don't quite understand it? Listen to the song "Coexistence" It has an obvious deathcore vibe, complete with a breakdown. And if Dual vocals and breakdowns don't mean shit, then Suicide Silence is a Death Metal band.

Album features dual vocals and one song on the album has a breakdown, suggests genre be changed to deathcore. I don't think you'll find many people agreeing with you on that one, man.

Yeah I'm not even going to argue this. I listened to the song. It's clearly not deathcore.

Dying Fetus has dual vocals and breakdowns. Guess we better change their style too.

Guess The Black Dahlia Murder isn't metalcore then either? Since both bands have nearly the same vocal styles. This and this sound so different right?

No, they're not. Purely death/MDM.

Nobody here is trolling. You suggested Beyond Creation is a deathcore band. The vast majority of people who've listened to deathcore and Beyond Creation will disagree with you, and the fact you chose to use a "deathcore vibe" and dual vocals as your only reason for said suggestion isn't exactly going to convince anyone here that your opinion holds any weight.

As for The Black Dahlia Murder, they're generally regarded as a melodic death metal band now. As in death metal with a focus on melody. Their metalcore days are long behind them.

It was strong debut. Little flaws encroached in approach of The Aura but overall it was decent one.

The one that gone down to become an absolute turd was their new release last year "Earthborn Evolution". Totaly downgraded cheap unpurified and crappy tech dm show. Well, at least for me I couldn't past ONE SPIN and shut the whole damn thing afterwards.

Just had the craving to return to this for that wounded, whaling fretless bass guitar.

That bass is indeed something special...both haunting and addictive, and very refreshing.
