The Rise of Marduk

Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (15 Votes)

Blasphemous Creation have been a very different band at different stages of their existence. When I got their Shadows of Evil demo back in ?08 they were a pretty standard Death/Black band with some good riffs and a lot of energy. Their debut album was more of a Sodom-styled Thrashing good time, and their last album was a tight, modern, aggressive slab of Death Metal in the vein of Behemoth.

Now we have their third full-length, and it is a return to the old-style blackened Thrash they used to play, while still continuing the Sumerian lyrical themes they started with last time. I would bitch about their restless genre-switching, but it keeps producing good albums. This album is much more classic Thrash-sounding than any of their other works, and it is filled with some cool riffage and the Angelripper-styled rasps of Isaac Wilson. This is more melodic than they have ever been, and it makes for a real workout for my air-guitar hand. If you have not checked out Blasphemous Creation, you should.
