Beyond Creation biography
BEYOND CREATION is a Canadian Extreme Progressive Death Metal band from Montreal that was founded by Simon GIRARD and Nicolas DOMINGI VIOTTO in 2005. After a few years of shifting lineups the collective finally came into place consisting of Simon GIRARD on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Guyot B╔GIN-BENOIT, guitarist Kevin CHARTR╔ and, founding member of AUGURY, Dominic LAPOINTE on bass.

With their combination of melodic death metal and technical chops, the band have the potential of making even the giants of the genre feel jealous of their capabilities. The April 2011 release of their debut full length album titled "The Aura" is a clear indication of a mature band that know what they are capable of and therefore deliver accordingly.

4 stars "Earthborn Evolution" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Canadian death metal act Beyond Creation. The album was released through Season of Mist in October 2014. Beyond Creation was formed in 2005 and released the generally well received debut full-length studio album "The Aura" in 2011. Bassist Dominic "Forest" Lapointe is also a member of fellow countrymen Augury, B.A.R.F. and Atheretic.

The music on "Earthborn Evolution" pretty much continues the technical/progressive death metal style, which was initiated on "The Aura (2011)". Artists like Augury, Fallujah, and to some extent Obscura are all valid references. What sets Beyond Creation apart from other similar acts is the dominant bass playing by Dominic "Forest" Lapointe, and while the rest of the music is also incredibly well played, it's his playing that's the real highlight on "Earthborn Evolution". It's nothing short of amazing. The rest of the music is fairly standard technical/progressive death metal with tons of tempo- and time signature changes, ultra fast fretboard runs, semi-jazzy guitar solos, and a suiting level of brutality. It's all delivered by true professionals, but the vocals sound a bit soulless to my ears. They are pretty monotone growling, and not even the occasional higher pitched screaming vocal part can save that part of the music from being a bit one-dimensional. Lead vocalist/guitarist Simon Girard gets the job done, but not more than that, and sometimes I get the feeling that the vocals are an afterthought instead of an integrated and important part of the music. That feeling is further enhanced by the fact that there are so much going on at any given time during the albums playing time, that this could easily have been released as an instrumental album.

The material are generally very complex, both in structure and in execution, but that of course won't prove a challenge to fans of this particular death metal style. Not many tracks stand out, as the band focus more on technical playing than they do on hooks, but I'd mention "Sous La Lueur De L'Empereur" as one of the highlights. It's got some memorable themes, and I think the album could have prospered from more tracks like that, featuring more memorable hooks.

When that is said "Earthborn Evolution" is still a high quality release in the genre, featuring high level musicianship, a professional take on composition, and a powerful and clear sounding production, which suits the music perfectly. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Review by ScarRitual

5 stars Brutality, subtlety, technical expertise and melody never combined as beautifully as this! Such a stunning achievement from this Canadian band of wizards. Being myself a Bass player I must acknowledge Dominic Lapointe's astonishing fretless work. A sublime performance from all but Dominic's performance is beyond belief. Having said that, the drumming is Mammoth throughout and the guitar work will send shivers down your spine with it's virtuosic acrobatics and stunning sense of melody. The vocals are wonderfully harsh and malignant and the two tones, one cavernous and the other shrieking, combine very effectively. But the most surprising and rewarding facet of this album is that despite all the shredding and virtuosic display, the songs flow effortlessly with enormous aesthetic elegance and sumptuousness. The songwriting is truly top notch and the songs are really cohesive and coherent..they are even majestic and beautiful at times. It's almost impossible to hear the flutter of a butterfly's wings in a storm..but Beyond Creation managed this miracle of sound.

4 stars "The Aura" is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian, Montreal, Quebec based death metal act Beyond Creation. The album was released through PRC Music in April 2011. Beyond Creation features among others, Augury bassist Dominic "Forest" Lapointe.

...bearing that in mind it┤s no surprise that the music on "The Aura" is technical (slightly progressive) death metal in the vein of Augury, Obscura and Vale of Pnath (another newcommer to the scene). The musicianship are outstanding, the sound production is clear and powerful, and the songwriting adventurous and challenging. While all members of the lineup deliver incredibly tight instrumental performances I have to give a special mention to Dominic "Forest" Lapointe. His fretless basswork is simply amazing and fortunately the bass has been given a perfect spot in the mix where it is audible at all times. The vocals are fairly standard for the genre, alternating between deep growling vocals are and a higher pitched snarl. They are alright but if you ask me the music could have prospered from a more unique sounding vocal style.

The 10 tracks on the 52:40 minutes long album vary from shorter instrumental tracks, to "regular" length tracks, to a mastodon like the 11:09 minutes long closing track "The Deported". No matter the format, Beyond Creation write strong and entertaining material that┤ll keep you on your toes but also make your head bang.

Upon conclusion "The Aura" is one of the strongest technical death metal albums released in 2011 along with "The Prodigal Empire (2011)" by Vale of Pnath. There┤s that something "extra" about the album that makes it stand out even though it┤s not necessarily the most original sounding technical/progressive death metal album out there. A 4 - 4.5 star (85%) rating is fully deserved.
