God Was Created (Metal Blade)
by Tim Den

I was bent over laughing at the album art... until the CD started playing. Baroque acoustic guitars underneath Suffocation-style "ultra deep" vocals? Then early-In Flames duel lead riffing? Wow! And I thought this was going to be just some gore metal rip-off. On to song two... synth strings, more baroque chord progressions, some spoken word, and a devastating burst into snake spit/growl dual vocals atop beautifully melodic riffs? Fuck me insane, this is rad! The fact that Vehemence have a keyboard player who actually contributes to the atmosphere is commendable, but to have powerful riffs as well! Such understanding of classical chord progressions! And a love for old school "so deep you can't understand them" vocals! I think I'm in love. Overlook the silly art, cuz this is a mighty album on par with The Jester Race.
