It seems like a third Malevolent Creation live album in the space of a six years would be totally unessasary and yet it exists in Australian Onslaught. Having already hit the North (Live At The Whiskey A Go Go) and South American (Conquering South America) audiences, the Florida fivesome now turns its broken and battered husk to the Down Under, a lively crowd who had never before gotten the chance to see the band on their home turf. Like the Whiskey A Go Go album, this features the vocals of the original frontman Brett Hoffman, and he spends quite a bit of time between tracks chatting up the audience. Often, this is your typical f-bomb dropping ‘n shit, because after all, all brutal fucking death metal bands are fucking too fucking insane not to, right? Fuck yeah. But there are also some moments of honest humor, like Hoffman mentioning that gray hairs have grown on his head and balls in the time it took to get over to Sydney. The track list has quite a number of redundancies from the Whiskey live: Blood Brothers, Living In Fear, Coronation Of Our Domain, Manic Demise, Eve Of The Apocalypse and The Fine Art Of Murder all rear their trampled heads again, while a few surprises manifest like the Memorial Arrangements intro from The Ten Commandments. There are also a handful of tracks taken from the band’s latest effort (Doomsday X) by the time of this recording: Deliver My Enemy and Cauterized, the latter being one of the most exciting on the album with its thrashing rhythms. Like its predecessors, you’re getting an adequate if not excessively exciting set list from one of the hardest working (if not standout) acts in the field. And this time, it sounds better, in that the ferocity of the guitars, the vocals and drums all measure up with one another. But that shouldn’t imply that Australian Onslaught warrants a purchase instead I guess it depends on how much fan you are or if you have bought any of the previous live albums. But the album delivers so its certainly no worse or better than the others. It gets the job done so its up to you to decide if the third time is the real charm or not
