Human Cull – Revenant (Death By Digital)

Human Cull is definitely not a new name in Grind. These 3 Brits have been ripping apart the underground for the past 7 years and show no signs of slowing down. So today we sit down to swoon over their most recent offering, Revenant. Just from the cover art, you can tell this package is sure to deliver something tasty for our senses. Depicting multiple towering masses of human bodies interconnected by what seem to be either hoses or veins, not sure which exactly. Off near the bottom left corner of the artwork is depicted to be what looks like some sort of Dark Deity or Evil Conjurer using these souls for his bidding.

Alright now, let’s dive into this record and see what it has to offer us. Boasting tracks that range from 20 seconds to 2 minutes in length.  We kick things off with the ear blistering Harnessing Atrocity; Human Cull waste no time throwing you into a whirlwind of riffs, blasts and ferocious vocals. And it doesn’t slow down from here; each track feels faster and more relentless than the last. The Butcher’s Nails kicks off with a tasty little drum bit before diving face first into rage once more. And then there’s Everyday Paranoia, a song that kicked me in the ears so hard I had to replay it at least 3 times because it became a quick addiction. An Offering to the Machine, one of 2 songs to break the minute and a half mark, is filled with more aggression and hate than I thought possible for human beings.  This album, front to back is Human Cull’s most raw and primal work to date and an absolute pleasure to listen to repeatedly.
