Screams Of Anguish - This album is one of the many classic, yet unknown albums of the stream of early 90's death metal and it is one that absolutely deserves to be known. There are many things that can be said about it but the best thing to call it is a 100%, scary, evi, pulverizing, apocalyptic, devastating, earth-rumbling, heavy, brutal death metal masterpiece but with other awesome elements making it the masterpiece that it is.
First, you have death metal songs that almost create the feeling of almost being caught up in something like a cataclysmic or an "end of the world" event because everything sounds so catastrophic, eerie and doomy but the songs also have solos, melodies, awesome musical passages as well as the potential and the incredible death metal musicianship which puts this band up there along with the other elite bands of death metal. Another thing that makes this album so special is that there are those instrumentals. The first one is called Sympathy which sounds like something out of a Conan: The Barbarian movie because it has a classical music feel to it. The next one is called Spirit World which sounds like a soundscape type song that makes the listener feel like he's drifting in the spiritual world. Very relaxing. So all in all, get this album and prepare to be crushed, seriously.
Choice cuts: These Walls Shall Be Your Grave, Ceremonial Unearthing, Sympathy, Crushed, Cries Of The Forsaken, Cryptorium and Spawned Illusion
Malevolent Creation has been one of the heaviest, most brutal death metal bands on the planet and when you listen to this album, you will agree, seriously. All I can say is have a custom-made body suite and helmet on, have only a sterio and go to an opened field or wasteland for that matter where there's nothng around because all hell is going to break loose.
