Demo Review: Human Dissention "Total War" (Independent) by Brynn Kali StarDew

Band: Human Dissention
Location: Rochester, New York
Country: USA
Genre: Blackened death metal, grindcore
Demo: Total War
Format: Digital
Label: Independent
Release date: March 10, 2016
The intro track "Visceral Display of Warfare” to this album reminds me a lot of Cannibal Corpse style Grindcore, but with less growly vocals which are almost completely understandable. The Drums are probably the most interesting part. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad but I just wasn’t really that impressed either. It gets interesting around 2:40 though when they start their guitar melody. I would have liked to see this produced better, but that's not what music is really supposed to be about in my opinion. To sum it up I have to say it's a very good metal band, but with a little hammering out and polishing they could be better. The next track “Absolution of Earth" wasn't really much better, I honestly thought it was the same song at first but I had to check when I noticed the level of growling had slightly increased.
“Ingrained Apathy for Mankind” this track is basically the same but starts to get interesting around 2:40 (I’m starting to notice a theme here) when it starts to get quicker and more hardcore. The final track “Victory Over Life” was pretty good, typical ramping up the tempo again at around 2:40 is definitely a solid metal track which is on the same level as System of Down in terms of overall quality but I do feel as they are lacking overall production sadly. I’m just saying a music video or two would really go a long way to express this Thrash/Punk/Grindcore style of Metal music. -Brynn Kali StarDew
