Human Bodies are a band from Massachusetts that plays a raw mixture of black metal and punk and this is a review of their 2014 cassette which was released by Caligari Records.
Noisy reverb starts off the cassette before going into a very fast and raw black metal sound that also brings in a great amount of blast beats and high pitched screams and you can hear a heavy punk influence in the bands musical style and at time s you can hear some melody being added into certain sections of the recording.
You can hear a heavy influence from the more punk side of the Norwegian black metal scene in the bands musical sound and the songs at times also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the bass guitar also brings in a very powerful sounding presence on some of the tracks while a couple of the songs also bring in a few seconds of guitar leads.
Human Bodies plays a style of black metal that is very raw and heavily rooted in the 90's sound and also mix it in with the energy of punk to create a sound of their own, the production sound s very raw and old school while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Human Bodies are a very great sounding raw mixture of black metal and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Scapegoat" and "Bellicose Throngs". 8 out of 10.
