One of two decent releases by Florida's Malevolent Creation.

The riffs are Slayer-esque, though darker while still being original. The guitar leads aren't very memorable with the best one being on the track Multiple Stab Wounds.

The best thing about this album is the drumming. Mark Simpson gives a very tight drum performance throughout. While he's not the most technical or heavily reliant on blasting, his kick drumming is very good and he mixes it up plenty.

The bass is inaudible for the most part, peaking out only a few times during songs. It doesn't do much except for a brief solo in Sacrificial Annihilation.

Brett Hoffmann's harsh vocal style is more rooted in thrash, delivering intelligible lyrics. He does do some great drawn out screams on the record, especially on Thou Shall Kill! and the title track.

Production is your typical 90s Morrisound.

Good debut record, but compared to the masterpieces of 1991 It wouldn't break the top 15 for that year.

Standouts are Remnants Of Withered Decay, Thou Shall Kill!, Sacrificial Annihilation, and Malevolent Creation.

Never heard this record, but Retribution rules so I'm sure it does too. Will jam eventually.

The greatest death metal album of all time to me! Album absolutely kills from the the genesis of Memorial
Arrangements to the end of Malevolent Creation. Every song has it's own flavor and each one is killer. I
think it's slightly better than Retribution and The Fine Art of Murder. Both of those albums kill too.
