Vehemence was an Arizona-based death metal band on the Metal Blades roster, releasing three albums in their career. The second of the three, 2002's God Was Created, is an accomplished technical yet brutal death metal album, rooted firmly in the old-school American style but also featuring a few nods to bands like Opeth in the form of the odd acoustic passage and some slick dischordant guitar melodies. There's also the occasional piano/keyboard interlude, rare and unique for this style. The low, gurgly vocals are a shade one-dimensional, which of course is nothing new in death metal -- a bit more variety wouldn't go amiss here though in general the vocalist acquits himself well. Though the band doesn't often stray outside the rigid confines of death metal, God Was Created is a solid and recommended album. They decided to call it a day in October 2005.
