Death metal from Quebec.
In one respect, that's almost all that needs be said.
The region has produced an astonishing number of truly top-notch
technical death metal bands, and Beyond Creation is a worthy addition
to that fraternity, releasing their debut album The Aura
While each of the four musicians shine here,
extra credit has to be given to
bassist Dominic Lapointe -- not only can one actually hear him, but his
quirky, inventive playing is all over the place.
Typical of the style, the riffs are jumpy and chaotic and in a constant
state of change, making for a dizzy, exhausting, yet satisfying listen.
Overall, The Aura
is a solid, polished, technical death metal
album from start to finish, one of the best in its field.
