“It’s a song about feeling the sense of redundancy in years of substance dependency. There’s this kind of fear and anxiety that comes with this feeling. How much time you’ve spent being fucked up in your life, and can you overcome it? There’s a lot of sadness in realizing you wanna make a change but lie to yourself and haven’t taken the step to do so.” – said Hunter Martinez.


BIO:Human Issue’s first offering ‘Faceless.Nameless’ is raw and impactful; guttural vocals deliver lyrics that resonate, backed by fast, punchy riffs that make this debut hard to ignore. Drawing inspiration from fast-paced punk and hardcore, expressing an accumulation of pent-up frustration and anger, this release is honest, gritty and gripping. In its infancy, Human issue was a solo project with Hunter Martinez utilizing his strength on drums and challenging himself vocally. 


As time went on the project evolved and formed into a concept of artist collaboration, each making their mark on the tracks, becoming a collective and complimenting each other’s contribution. This concept gives the project fluidity, each release going forward will feature different artists lending their talents as well as returning guests. This approach puts everyone involved front and center, delivering from their core.
Featuring members of Adolescents, A Global Threat, Dwarves, Melted, Decent Criminal, Crow Jane. 

(recenzija) Hypocrisy – Worship (Nuclear Blast)

Peter Tagtgren je legenda. Svi njegovi bendovi i projekti, sva produkcija sa Abyss studiom, sve što je napravio meni je odlično. Njegov glavni bend Hypocrisy je nedavno izdao novi trinaesti dugosvirajući opus, osam godina nakon zadnjeg. Što imamo ovdje? 11 pjesama odličnog melodičnog švedskog death metala, sa podosta agresije i brzine i sporijih atmosferičnijih stvari gdje se na cijelom albumu ističu odlične gitarske melodije, kao i fenomenalno bubnjanje Horgha, poznatog kao i bubnjara Immortal, on je meni jedan od najdražih bubnjara na sceni ikada. Peterovo pjevanje je opet raznoliko, od growlova koji se razumije u dosta slučaja što pjeva, preko black vokala do predivnih clean, melodičnih dionica. Basist Mikael Hedlund grmi u svojim dionicama podebljavajući kvalitetu odlično napisanih pjesama. Tematski, album se opet bavi cyber svijetom, zavjerama, alienima, UFO-ima i sličnim veselim temama koje ovaj bend analizira u svojim tekstovima već desetljećima. Ovo nije najbolji Hypocrisy album, ali je definitivno u top 5, barem meni.

8/10

(recenzija) Voices – Breaking The Trauma Bond (Church Road Records)

Voices dolaze iz UK-a i ovo im je četvrti dugosvirajući opus u postojanju na sceni od 2012.godine. Ovaj bend se sastoji od sadašnjih i bivših članova Akercocke i Sarah Jezebel Deva između ostalih bendova i projekata u kojima su iskusni članovi ovog benda svirali i sviraju do sada. Voices sviraju neku mješavinu avantgardnog i progresivnog black metala sa podosta gothic utjecaja, pogotovo u vokalnim dionicama gdje se često miješaju growlanje i gothic pjevanje koje me poprilično podsjetilo na Sisters of Mercy u nekim dionicama. Isto tako ima dosta i clean melodičnih vokala koji odlično pašu na sporije atmosferične skoro doomy dionice koje sa takvom lakoćom opet postaju blast beat agresivnost. Tekstualno se Voices kreću više u osobnim vodama, koriste teme na koje se možemo povezati kao što su izolacija, depresija, beznađe, seksualnost, smrt i život…Moji osobni favoriti su An Audience of Mannequins, Ghost City, Beckoning Shadow. Ovo je jako dobar album.
