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.
