On The Seventh Day God Created…Master


This album has a legendary rep, but honestly, that's just because it's from the heyday of Death Metal and was kind of obscure at the time, so that more people heard of it than actually heard it. Master are still around, and I have no idea if they are still any good, but this is just a nice slab of old-school Death Metal – nothing more, nothing less. Think Obituary riffs played at Death speed and a vocalist who sounds a lot like LG Petrov and you'll have it. Paul Masvidal contributes some pretty good leads on here, and none of the songs are bad with the exception of the lame "America The Pitiful", but really this doesn't sound any different from the other 40,000 Death Metal albums released from 1988-1992. On The Seventh Day… is a cut above the crowd in songwriting and musicianship, but just a cut, anyone expecting a genre-defining lost classic is bound for disappointment.
