Editorial Reviews

Vetern death metal band Malevolent Creation return with their eighth full length album The Will to Kill. Eleven tracks of pure terror that brings new life to the patented Florida death metal sound. Crushing vocals by new singer Kyle Symons, mixed by Jean Francois DeGarians of the band Kataklysm. The album also features new drummer Justin DePinto.

The loss of Hoffman and Culross on this album clearly makes for a different listen than traditional MC releases, hence this album should really be looked at as its own entity separate from previous MC releases (like, say, their devastating previous album "Envenomed").
With that said, this album is truly fantastic when taken in its own right. The technicality has been turned down ever so slightly from what the typical MC fan may be used to, but that really does not take away from the feeling and groove of this disc. For those of you not familiar with Kyle Symons's vocals, they sound exactly like what you would get if you crossed Max Cavalera (circa his "Chaos AD" days w/ Sepultura) and the vocalist from Pro-Pain. Personally, I think Kyle's vocals are awesome, despite the fact that they sound a little more standard as some other reviewers have noted.
Another absolutely wonderful part about this CD is the blast beats. The drum production on this album is terrific (at least in my opinion), and they REALLY mic-ed up the double-bass so it pounds your chest (as opposed to say, the drum production on Krisiun's "Ageless Venomous" where the drumming was phenomenal, but the double-bass hardly sounded, or felt for that matter, any different from the snare). The blast beats and drumming on this album aren't incredibly diverse or rich when compared to someone like Tony Laureano of Angel Corpse/Nile fame, but they pound so hard & fast any metalhead will just have to love 'em. (On a side note, if the blast beats here were put on Bloodbath's "Resurrection Through Carnage" album, it'd be nearly the best album of 2002. However, since that disc only has maybe 2 songs with remotely decent blasts, I think that even this new MC release suprasses "Resurrection Through Carnage".

I used to listen to Malevolent Creation when I was in high school, and thought they were really good. Intro to 2002, where after 2 years in Florida I become acquainted with Rob from Malevolent through my guitar player Jeff, and Rob lets me listen to "The Will to Kill" before it came out. I thought it was good then and now that I have a pressed copy it sounds even better. If you have the chance to see Malevolent, you will be impressed, I assure you. I just saw them in Orlando with Cannibal Corpse and you wouldn't believe how many people were there, heavy music is making a comeback for sure in the States. The new vocalist has a different style and register than Brett so it may take some getting used to for some people. For me, he fits right in there, and I honestly think his voice is stronger anyway. Their new drummer is also solid. To give credit where it's due of course you have to say that Cullross is impossibly good, but it is so hard to find people who can play this stuff, and DiPinto is there. You also cannot overlook living legend James Murphy's contribution in "Assassin Squad", two of the best solos I've ever heard, period. Let's all hope he gets well. Go out and buy this album, and go see Malevolent Creation, support one of the bands who are still true to the ultimate brutality of the heavy music underground. Thats it.

Even though the "Will to Kill" starts off with the thunderous title track, this album mirrors the previous period in the mid-90s where the albums were without Brett Hoffmann. Kyle Symons from Hate Plow replaces Hoffmann on vocals. No Dave Culross which is maybe an even bigger loss for the band since he's a great drummer. The only lineup from the early 90s MC is Rob Barrett and the only constant on any MC release, Phil Fasciana.

Despite using the gory cover to real people into listening to this release, a common trick used amongst Death Metal bands to sometimes hide an inferior product, "The Will to Kill" has it's moments. The title track, "Lifeblood", "Rebirth of Terror", and "Divide and Conquer" are all listenable and better than most of the younger generation of Death Metal bands that started around this time, but compared to earlier or later MC work...it just doesn't hold up. The riffs are bland, Symons vocals are flat and don't project, the drumming is mostly bland and just keeps the time by thrashing along. This album doesn't have the vision or intensity of yesteryears "Envenomed" and certainly nowhere near as good as "Retribution" or the debut album.

Easily one of the two worst MC creation albums.

I honestly thought I would hate the new album when Kyle Symmons joined this band. Reason being because I can't stand Hate Plow (his "other" band). Hate Plow is a generic death metal act, but "The Will to Kill" is not.
Malevolent Creation somehow topped the brutality of "Envenomed" with this release. It is a drum and guitar inferno from beginning to end. Also, although I would really prefer Bret Hoffman (MC's degenerate,...addict former vocalist), Symmons fits in nicely. (I think it's because they turned down his vox--unlike in Hate Plow, where his voice grates the ears throughout.)
I probably wouldn't have given this as many stars had it not been Malevolent Creation, but I cannot deny the energy and power of this release.
BTW: If you don't have Envenomed, go buy that. It is better than this simply because of the vocals. Nevertheless, this album shines in its own right...
