MALEVOLENT CREATION "The Ten Commandments" [CD, Digipak]
1991 - Death (early) from United States
The Ten Commandments is quite possibly the greatest combination of death and thrash metal ever composed. The album is full of very fast and energetic guitar work, surely how Malevolent Creation got to be known as "Slayer on acid". They didn't bring a whole lot of new ideas to the table, but what really separates them from the others is Bret Hoffmann's unique and intense vocal performance. I love all aspects of this album, but the main reason you should give it a listen is to hear Bret at his best, along with their second effort.
