Human are a duo from the United Kingdom that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of both of their 2020 singles.
"He Who Saw the Abyss".
Dark soundscapes start off the song along with some avant garde style instruments before going into a heavier direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of brutal blast beats can be heard while the vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls, When guitar leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them.
Evil sounding melodies are also added into some of the riffing and the song also adds in a lot of 90's influences along with the song also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as a brief use of melodic chants that also give the song more of an ethnic atmosphere. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover occultism themes,
. "Unto Muspellsheimr, The Realm Ov Fire And Void".
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the track while the vocals are mostly black metal screams along with some death metal growls also being used at times. Clean vocals are also a very huge part of the track as well as the tracks sticking to more of a mid tempo direction. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Norse Mythology themes.
In my opinion Human are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out these singles. 8 out of 10.
