5 stars Brutality, subtlety, technical expertise and melody never combined as beautifully as this! Such a stunning achievement from this Canadian band of wizards. Being myself a Bass player I must acknowledge Dominic Lapointe's astonishing fretless work. A sublime performance from all but Dominic's performance is beyond belief. Having said that, the drumming is Mammoth throughout and the guitar work will send shivers down your spine with it's virtuosic acrobatics and stunning sense of melody. The vocals are wonderfully harsh and malignant and the two tones, one cavernous and the other shrieking, combine very effectively. But the most surprising and rewarding facet of this album is that despite all the shredding and virtuosic display, the songs flow effortlessly with enormous aesthetic elegance and sumptuousness. The songwriting is truly top notch and the songs are really cohesive and coherent..they are even majestic and beautiful at times. It's almost impossible to hear the flutter of a butterfly's wings in a storm..but Beyond Creation managed this miracle of sound.
ScarRitual | 5/5 |
