Dating from 1991, this is the debut album of Florida death metal outfit Malevolent Creation, a vintage example of desolate and ferocious death. The Ten Commandments is gloriously twisted and blackened, and deserves a central place in the pantheon of the American death metal greats. Reissued on vinyl by Listenable Records.

If you're someone that is willing to explore the roots of death metal, or if you're a longtime fan of the genre looking to relive the classic era of the 80's and 90’s, then this is a good start. It is reminiscent of a time when fellow-genre bands like Death, Obituary, and Morbid Angel were making their mark in the scene, but Malevolent Creation's 'The Ten Commandment's' is something you have to listen to. The Ten Commandments is the band's first album and although it might be the worst in my opinion, that doesn't mean it's a bad album overall, just above-average and in need of some improvement. Despite this, it's still enjoyable to listen to and has some good moments, like "Premature Burial", "Thou Shall Kill" and "Multiple Stab Wounds" that foreshadowed Malevolent Creation's future as a mainstay in the death metal genre throughout the 1990's.
