HUMANGLED (Italy) “Odd Ethics” CD EP review

After 2 years Italian deathers Humangled come back with more strength. The EP “Odd Ethics” (intro + 4 songs) comes through Abyss Records, without alterations on musical approach; the production of this CD was once again entrusted to the hands of Dan Swanö.

The sounds are more powerful than the previous album “Fractal”, perhaps for merit of introducing a second guitarist which enhances the sonic impact. After the intro, the opening “Needles of the Blind” is in classical death metal style with NWOBHM flavor, from groovy moments to full blast beats at the end. “Skinned, to Fell All” is probably the best song of this CD, groovy oriented riffs, death’n roll and brute force. “Smells Acrid” is much speedier and violent with a brutal and catchy refrain. The last song, “Deny Your Creed” expresses in a more clear way the atypical approach to death metal of Humangled. The tune lurches through different tempos with great success, from grindcore to thrash influences, fast chugging riffs and fierce vocals.

Odd Ethics is an excellent work that leaves me waiting for the next full-length.
