An Album By


Review by

Creations is back with its sophomore release, Unworthy/Humility, which is guaranteed to bring a super-packed punch of raw emotion and aggression to your music collection. If you’re unfamiliar with Creations, as a band, they bring honest truth and don’t hold back on what they believe is right. True to form, vocalist Thomas Hirst focuses on the fact that Christ died for everyone’s sins and how that is taken for granted.  Aside from the lyrics, this new album presents itself with more than just breakdowns common to the genre — the drumming is more technical and each track isn’t predicable. Adding to the excitement and unpredictability are guest vocals from Brook Reeves of Impending Doom and Dean Atkinson of With Blood Comes Cleansing. Unworthy/Humility shows Creations’ progression as a band; it shows that its writing process has stepped up a notch. Whether it’s a tiny drum fill during a brief silence, or guitar squeals between tempo changes, it’s obvious that Creations took its time and put effort into this album, produced by Zack Ohren (All Shall Perish, Set Your Goals). Although it’s a raucous album, it doesn’t present anything new. That’s not to say it’s boring; listeners will hear similar sounds of Whitechapel and — dare I say — The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza. The majority of this album’s breakdowns are slow-paced and rhythmically simple. Even though some of the tracks sound repetitive at times, each song brings a different topic lyrically, and that’s what makes this album special.
