Malevolent Creation - "Death From Down Under" DVD

American death metal recorded live with 4 cameras in Sydney, Australia. It's a raw, unadorned production, capturing the band at their blurry, riffy, grunty best. Highlights include the fearsome speed/death of "Blood Brothers" and the well-oiled machine that is "Man's Demise". "Fine Art Of Murder" is another churning, gutteral assault.

Over the course of 60 minutes, you get tons of hair-tossing, guitar-thrashing, speed/death metal madness from a band that's been around for almost 25 years. Definitely a treat for converted fans, but this band knows their craft well enough to convince me, too. Bravo, boys! (Arctic Music Group)
