Style - Death Metal

" With "A Velvet Creation", Eucharist create unusually eerie and ominous death metal with a great sense of melody and rhythm. The album possesses a sense of swirling colours, due to its chaotic structure both vertically and horizontally "

" The harmonic interplay between the guitars is frankly awesome - in that respect the band is almost unrivaled. The bass adds real depth to the melodies, and sounds somewhat jazzy at times (in a good way). Eucharist are clearly technically superb, and although the drum-production leaves a bit to be desired (the snare sounds a bit too 'slappy'), the drumming itself is excellent - giving the recording life while not being too 'showy'. I'd also like to praise the acoustic intro to "Greeting Immortality", which I find to be very beautiful and apt. The vocals are generally fitting high-pitched growls "

" Truly one of my favorites from the era......And if it had a big production...could have been a monster ! This version has all the bonus tracks that Eucharist did for samplers and compilations added by me "

Enjoy a brilliant piece of music from a largely unknown and under appreciated band !

Merry Christmas !..........Go Ahead !
Get It!....Over Here !
