EP Review: FIRST DAYS OF HUMANITY "Caves" (Independent) by Devin Joseph Meaney

Location: Phoenix, Arizona
Country: USA
Genre: Goregrind
EP: Caves
Label: Clostridium Difficile Recordings
Format: Digital, streaming
Release date: February 3, 2019
While listening to First Days of Humanity, I am transported to a world where mammoths roam free, and Neanderthals bang their drums with the bones of sabretooth tigers. I can picture early humans sitting around a camp fire, fashioning arrow heads and making attempts to create the first grindcore/gorenoise abominations in existence.
With all that said, this is some seriously good stuff! This is pure homage to bands in the vein of Last Days of Humanity and Golem of Gore. The sound of this EP can be likened to ''In Advanced Haemorrhaging Conditions,'' a 2005 release put out by Last Days of Humanity. The splatter is strong with these guys, and fans of goregrind and gorenoise can expect a plethora of grunts and gurgles that can only be expected from the vile.
With snare-heavy blasts and vicious guitar backing the vocals, the music within this EP is put together very well, and I can say without a doubt that First Days of Humanity has gained at least one new fan. Please excuse me as I dig out my chisel, as I now need to etch this review into a cave wall, permanently showcasing this band for millions of years to come.
Awesome tunes! Grind or die! -Devin Joseph Meaney

1. Fashioning Weapons out of Bone and Sinew
2. Depictions of Violence on the Cavern Wall
