Humanart are a band from Portugal that plays a traditional form of black metal and this is a review of their album "(Further)Into The Depths" which will be released in June bu Dark Age Works.
A synth orientated intro starts off the album along with some spoken word and war samples before going into a heavier direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams while the music also adds in a good mixture of both old school and modern influences. The songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style.
A small amount of dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length along with all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover life, death, occultism and anti religion themes.
In my opinion Humanart are a very great sounding traditional form of black metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Underground Slut" "Invocation" and "Black Crusade". 8 out of 10.
