MALEVOLENT CREATION - The 13th beast LP
MALEVOLENT CREATION present the band’s 13th studio album, which sees the long running Death Metal veterans return reinvigorated and with a revamped line-up that musically expands upon 2014’s “Dead Man’s Path” yet also incorporates a savage ferocity known from albums such as “The Will To Kill” and “Eternal”. From blasting opener ‘End The Torture’ unto the epic, Bolt Thrower-like album closer ‘Release The Soul’, “The 13th Beast” impresses with a diverse yet uncompromising Death Metal attack that perfectly combines intensity, speed, unrelenting aggression with memorable riffs and catchy hooks. After the recent passing of original singer Bret Hoffmann in 2018, new vocalist Lee Wollenschlaeger (Throne Of Nails, Imperial Empire) adds a different vibe to founding member Phil Fasciana’s signature riffs, with his understandable yet deeper roar. Yet, as tough it may be to replace a cult vocalist, MALEVOLENT CREATION master this challenge with class and succeed in offering the band’s heaviest, most violent sounding record in years brilliantly mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. The death metal beasts are back with vengeance!
