From a dimension far beyond the boundaries of manifest reality comes Lawrence's Creation; a sonic explosion born of talent so volatile it threatens the very fabric of cosmic existence. The brainchild of Philadelphia's virtuosic multi-instrumentalist Lawrence Wallace (Shadows in the Crypt, Serpent Ov Old) and Finnish/American Black Metal master Mika Mage (Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus), "Drop Zone" imbues the listener with 10 tracks of progressive instrumental ecstasy. Mage on bass perfectly complements Wallace as he yet again astounds with face-melting guitar work, further cementing his place amongst Speed Metal master's Luca Turilli, Michael Romeo, Yngwie Malmsteen, Rusty Cooly, John Petrucci, and Paul Gilbert. The power duo of Lawrence's Creation is a transcendent genesis of hope, a light amongst the ever beckoning Abyss... taking you to a place far beyond the capabilities of human imagination.

Very fun old school death metal album with quite memorable songs. It's well produced, has piercing HM-2 riffs and some great leads. Stunning cover art as well.
While not reinventing the wheel, the art of still doing great old school death in 2020 shouldn't be underestimated.

Out of all the Rogga bands/projects I've heard, this is my favorite and I think it stands out the most. Whereas Rogga's other projects go for full-on Swedeath, Entrance to the Otherwhere is much more melodic and triumphant. FFO old Amorphis and In Flames. xCHICKEN SANDWICHx
