"Forsaken Dynasty" (Independent; 2021)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

The entire of "Forsaken Dynasty" is told in the first (and title) track on this album, a man with a Lurch-like voice tells you in a spoken word intro that "Forsaken Dynasty" is about a battle of blood, battle and betrayal.

And then track 2 comes along and just kicks the living shit out of you.

Razor-sharp guitars, a bullet train of a rhythm section and sinister vocals race out of the gate on "The Architect" and "Forsaken Dynasty" never lets up from there. It's a raging metal record that never lets up, never apologizes and never stops delivering high level heavy metal. Is it thrash? Yeah, you could probably call it that. But it's more. It's fast, chaotic and on the verge of being out of control.

And I loved it.

I didn't pay much attention to the story, to be honest. Something about a rebel who wants to become the universe's most powerful being and someone called Ra using his spaceship to destroy the villain. I just enjoyed the ride, from beginning to end, following along at a breakneck pace and loving the unabashed thrill of it all. If this is your genre, I think you will, too.

"Shadows of Evil" (Self-produced; 2008)

Just by looking at the logo you know what you’re getting with Blasphemous Creation; as far as distinct clues go, the band’s name doesn’t hurt either.

Blasphemous Creation plays brutal death metal that is raw, fast, and semi-chaotic. So you can score “Shadows of Evil” for the old-school crowd. “Shadows of Evil,” a four-track EP, adds a touch of classic thrash metal that lends a sense of familiarity to the proceedings yet you’d never consider this thrash at all. The vocals are harsh grunts which is to be expected, but the lead guitars have a sort of Slayer-like out-of-control mayhem that is simply ear candy.

“Shadows of Evil” was produced by Blasphemous Creation and engineered by Josh Williams. This EP balances the raw, under-produced sound favored by the originators of the black metal genre with the clarity of modern recording techniques.

Blasphemous Creation: Isaac Wilson on vocals and guitars, Ben Brown on guitars and backing vocals, Jed Wilson on bass, and Travis Edwards on drums.

"Rest in Pieces" (Self-produced; 2006)

Reviewed by Christopher J. Kelter

Blasphemous Creation combines old-school death metal and blackened thrash for a sound designed for fans that truly love the underground sound.

The six tracks on “Rest in Pieces” are quickly paced and prove that relentless riffing never grows old. Even though it’s hard to go wrong with the old school death metal style, adding in blackened thrash elements can get tricky. Songs combining these two styles are often sound disjointed – that’s generally not the case with “Rest in Pieces.” “Rest in Pieces” provides some evidence that combining old-school death metal and blackened thrash can be enjoyable. As implied earlier, fans of underground death metal will find a lot to like with “Rest in Pieces.”

“Rest in Pieces” was produced, recorded, and mixed by Fleshgrinder. 

Blasphemous Creation: Fleshgrinder on vocals and lead guitar, Corpseripper on rhythm guitar, Soul Reaper on bass, and Bonekrusher on drums.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
