Blasphemous Creation - Rest In Pieces (Independent) - Back
Influences including death, thrash, and black metal coalesce on Blasphemous Creation’s demo “Rest In Pieces.” It’s mostly speed-driven or fast-paced. The band pulls their character from the likes of Kreator, Sodom, Death, Destruction, Slayer, Deicide, Dissection, Dismember and more. When listening to this combination of traits, black metal seem to be their prime attribute at times. Or it could be a dirtied up version of death metal. The guitar’s tone reminds me of Dissection and Dismember a little. On a few tracks the guitars have a distant tone; muffled guitar sound. A few exceptional riffs are mixed in, but the solos don’t really work for me. Not enough definition and too riotous. The vocals seem to be a black metal vox, but also could be interpreted as a higher pitched death vocals. Blasphemous Creations is heavy and fast, but seem to be missing some direction. Parts at times I can’t help but wonder if they play they music just to play fast instead of working on what might work at that point. Which makes this musically verging on becoming random and generic. Being that this is a demo it should be surprising to find out that the band is a little rough around the edges. Production is ok but nothing to write home about. Six tunes under twenty minutes. It’s not to bad, but keep working on it guys.
