Malevolent Creation - Doomsday X

Three years after their last album MALEVOLENT CREATION are back with their already tenth studio album. Not much has changed, but why should there? They still serve very brutal Death Metal with a huge portion of Thrash in the riffing. So who had liked the last long players of the band, will also find “Doomsday X” right up their alley.


By now even the original singer is back in the band, which should be to the delight of many maniacs. I personally preferred the late Kyle Simons, but the hateful screech of Brett Hoffman is not bad either. The only thing leaving a stale aftertaste are the blastbeat parts of many songs, everything sounds so much better when Dave Culross breaks through in best Thrash Metal manner and the double-bass would need a little more power.

But for that the guitars split skulls with precision. Here and there a few wacky guitar parts shine through, which remind me of old INFERNÄL MÄJESTY or also NASTY SAVAGE. And that SLAYER fans also will find something to sink their teeth in, I won’t have to stress that anymore, now do I? But as good as the songs are, mostly “Archaic“, “Upon Their Cross“ and “Bio-Terror
, the really big hit, such as “Section 8“ off “Warkult are missing. Still an above-average album, which releases a lot of dark energy.
