Guest review by
Upon first hearing Malevolent Creation's sophmore effort, right away you have to notice all of the major changes. First of all the line-up: riff master Phil, bassist Jason and the ever punishing Bret are still present but taking Jeff's place on guitar is Rob Barrett, later of the infamous Cannibal Corpse, as well as the recruiting of blast-beat extraordinaire Alex Marquez, both of death/thrash band Solstice. Secondly the production is perfect, clean and crisp, and the music is much more mature than the debut, both in the songwriting and composition (not saying that "Ten Commandments" isn't anything less than perfect). The very first thing that captivated me is the cover art, done by the infamous Dan Seagrave; he pretty much concocted every one of the death metal classics of the nineties. I myself bought this album about 4 months ago and still listen to it on a regular basis so you just try pointing out any flaws. It needs to be re-released in the United States, along with their debut, because it is an instant classic, and let me fully explain why.

Tr00. That album defines DM. It has every DM element in it. Worth owning.

Its a big improvement on the debut, this one channels the explosiveness and its generally much better structured.

Not as good as the debut but very nice nonetheless.
