This is a review of a split cassette between Greece's Human Serpent and Human Parasites called "Servants Of Extreme Misanthropy" which was released by Old Graves Productions and Mercyful Hell productions and we will start off the review with Human Serpent a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and misanthropic form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very dark and melodic black metal sound before adding in more raw aggression and grim yet hateful screams which also leads up to the music bringing in more blast beats as well as using a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile the music brings in a brief use of melodic Gregorian chants on both songs and the second track is 8 minutes in length and also remains true to the raw and misanthropic style of the bands musical style while also utilizing a small amount of clean playing towards the end, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark, violent, hateful and misanthropic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Human Serpent and if you are a fan of raw and misanthropic black metal you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Chapel of Bones".
Next up is Human Parasites another band that plays a very raw and misanthropic form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with classical music and spoken word samples before going into a very fast, raw and old school black metal sound that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats along with a great amount of grim yet high pitched screams and both of the songs are in a 90's old school black metal direction and also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and also have a very powerful bass guitar sound in the background and the second track also shows the music getting more violent and also having a small amount of deep demonic growls and Gregorian chants, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover the Black Death Plague and Misanthropic themes.
In my opinion Human Parasites are a very great sounding raw, old school and misanthropic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out both of their songs, RECOMMENDED TRACK "Total Misanthropy".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of raw and misanthropic black metal, you should check out this split. 8 out of 10.
