"MALEVOLENT CREATION's first album THE TEN COMMANDMENTS took the metal world by storm in 1991. it is without a doubt one of the top 10 classic metal albums of all time. all of MALEVOLENTs albums are classics, but what seperates this one from the rest is the way the band presents themselves as an original outfit. the vocals are very extreme deathy growl with a hint of melody and even a little bit of rhythm...i dont want to say rap, but you'll know what i mean when you hear "multiple stab wounds". brett hoffman's lyrics were obviously precisly planned and well crafted. not to disrespect his latest efforts, because they are sick as hell, but brett has since dismissed his unique style and has not equalled it since for reasons that i cant provide details for. the musicianship of course is amazing and the songs are catchy and memorable...standout tracks are "premature burial" "thou shall kill!", "decadence within" "remnants of withered decay", and the above mentioned "multiple stab wounds". the drums stand out for being tight and well executed. what keeps it from being five-stars? this album is quiet and very hissy...and is in dire need of being re-mastered..."
Where Has This Classic Been???

"This is my all-time favorite Malevolent release. I can't understand why it's taken so long for a record company to re-release this masterpiece. It's without question one of the strongest, and most brutal Death Metal efforts ever released in the early 90's....This is also without question one of the best Death Metal bands to come out of Florida as well, along with the likes of Obituary and Death, Malevolent were certainly one of the best. These guys are from Ft. Lauderdale, and that's my hometown, so I consider myself very familiar with the best that Death Metal has to offer. "The Ten Commandments" is certainly worthy of top status.....Don't let this classic masterpiece slip through your fingers. I'm not sure how long this will be available considering it's been out of print for years since now, so buy it any time you get a chance. You wont regret it one bit...BUY IT WITH CONFIDENCE!!!The Ten Commandments Rules!!!"

"This pathetic idiot doesn't know about true music, obviously. He said this: "Look people, listen to all the good innovative bands that get no exposure, those killer technical bands are Limp Bizzkit, KoRn, Linkin Park, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Disturbed, Papa Roach, Staind, Drowning Pool, Mushroomhead, Endo, Nonpoint, Shuvel, E-Town Concrete, Blink 182, Green Day, Good Sharlit, Simple Plan and the intelligent yet brutal Green Day!!" Most of those bands get a LOT of exposure (I do listen to some of them, except for Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, and those 4 other poser punk bands listed), and he recommended Green Day twice! I hate Green Day now.

Now that I took care of that, I'll get to the CD. I don't own this, as it is out of print, but I have the best of Malevolent Creation (the one Roadrunner issued out) and enjoyed many of the songs on there. "Sacrificial Annihilation" is the title track on this rarity, and the 5 second bass solo is addicting at about 20 seconds throughout the track. This is my favorite song off there. I also enjoy "Multiple Stab Wounds", "Premature Burial" and "Remnants Of Withered Decay" as well. This CD stands out from other death metal releases, because the vocals are cleaner and you can follow along with it more easily, despite the results I've had when listening to Deicide and Mortician. I am far from being a death metal purist. I listen to all types of rock music, but this is a CD you should be lucky to own. If not that, purchase "The Best Of Malevolent Creation" for 6/10 of the CD, along with tracks from "Retribution" and "Stillborn"."
