Under The Influence #97: The influences of Blasphemous Creation on “Forsaken Dynasty”!
Highly anticipated, “Forsaken Dynasty“, the new album from Reno, Nevada Thrash infused Death Metallers Blasphemous Creation surfaced for air this past weekend, an odyssey that depicts Ancient Egypt as the home of Gods and Aliens wrapped in an onslaught of spine juddering guitars and a whirlwind of percussive battery. We spoke to them about the influences behind their sonic creations as the latest chapter in their career takes to flight, signing with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based label Horror Pain Gore Death Productions for this one.
Guitarist/vocalist Isaac Wilson: “For me it was “Coma Of Souls” by Kreator. To me it is the bible of teutonic thrash metal. The songs are all really fast and thrashy yet melodic and super catchy. The album is really fun to listen to and that is what I wanted to create for my portion of the songwriting. The riffs on that album straight up slay, and the solos are face melting. It is my absolute favorite album by Kreator.”
Bassist TJ Laughlin: “For my part of the album it was “Powerslave” byIron Maiden. I chose that album to influnce my riffs since it had the Ancient Egyptian theme, and this was our Ancient Egypt album in our themed trilogy of concept albums.”
Drummer Evan Richardson: “For my drumming parts it was “Hammer Of Gods” by Angelcorpse. It is the perfect example of how death metal drums should sound. Relentless blasts and double bass that don’t lose their driving feeling by being overly technical.”
“Forsaken Dynasty” by Blasphemous Creation is out 20th August and is available over at bandcamp.
