Massachusetts's In Human Form have returned with a new recording which continues the progressive style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of their 2019 album "III" which will be released in December by I, Voidhanger Records.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats.The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams and all 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style as well as the music also having it's progressive and technical moments.
Clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as some saxophones also being used briefly and keyboards are also added into some parts of the music along with one track also introducing spoken word parts onto the album and the songs also mix in a great amount of avant garde and prog rock elements. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover philosophical and mythological themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from In Human Form and if you are a fan of progressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Weeping Stones". 8 out of 10.
