This one was requested by an anonymous reader in the comments section of Saturday's Sadistic Intent post, and I can't thank him (or her) enough. Gods of Creation is a straight-up OSDM pummeling, a knuckle-dragging, mind-fucking hate orgy that predates the popularity of similar stuff like Vasaeleth and Dead Congregation by almost a decade. And while we're talking chicken-and-egg, I guess I should also point out that their Egypt fixation goes back almost as far as Nile's as well (Coffin Texts formed in 1994, Nile in '93).
Like their Los Angeles brethren Sadistic Intent, Coffin Texts seem to have a similar aversion to full-length albums, releasing just this one 8-song gem through the course of their 16+ years. A demo followed in '03, but Coffin Texts have managed to stay pretty far from the proverbial "death metal limelight" thus far. It's a shame, because this is killer shit. Sure, the album closes out with back-to-back Slayer and Black Sabbath covers ("Crypts of Eternity" and "Disturbing The Priest" respectively), which is basically the metal equivalent of doing Beatles songs. But it's forgivable, I guess. These guys shred, even though their album bears resemblance to Graveyard Classics III...
NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
