Here I am again  with another review and this is a very  special  moment  for me  as this is the first time  I will be reviewing  something from  Give Praise Records,  which is a label  that introduced me to Hardcore,Grind and Powerviolence .  I have such great memories listening to gems like Soil of Ignorance, The Afternoon Gentlemen and Titanarum, and now to know that I have gotten an official    promo from the label itself is indeed an honour. The very band that I will be reviewing from this label today is Age of Woe and the album is called In Human form.

Age of Woe are from Gothenburg, Sweden, a place famous for harvesting Melodic Death Metal, this band however are a different breed. The band’s sound can  be described  as sludge  mixed with hardcore  and that’s pretty much it really, not saying that that’s  a bad  thing. I mean  the band has everything   that makes up for some good  sludge/hardcore, dirty  guitars ,  massive breakdowns   energetic drumming  ,adding slower sections  so that there is some breathing space etc.  Then again I do feel  that it all of it  comes out sounding a little  … well for the lack of a better word  a little redundant.  Honestly  they don’t   really have anything   new that they  can  bring to the  table , although they do try   to  at times  with songs  like Black Rain  which add elements of funeral doom and The Antagonist,Cold  Cycle  and A Rite of passage  which   gives the band’s  sound  a melodic turn  but these few bright moments can’t really hide that.

But then again for what it is Inhumanform is a lot of fun, if you  just   want  to let loose  without thinking   too much, this would be a pretty good choice, not the best but definitely a good one.
