An unnatural stillness, but for the crumbling of brutalist tower blocks and croaking iron rods, roads strewn with rusted cars and bleached bones, a whispering wind battering the skeleton of civilisation with irradiated dust and ash, no organic matter just a blur of grey's and browns beyond the horizon. This is the future, this is the prophecy as foretold by Human Cull.
Doomsayers in the Neo-Malthusian school of thought Human Cull may have quite possibly dropped the most inhuman full length of 2013, Still Born Nation is as just about as brutal as it gets, evacuated of all majesty and nicety for a purely destructive musical experience that yields apocalyptical afflictions and traumatic repercussions best left for psychological textbooks. Still Born Nation builds upon that War, Hate and Misery vibe that crowned Bloody Phoenix amongst the grittiest and nebulous of the crusty grinders, bringing whole new levels of punishment as their shrapnel wrapped fists enter an unyielding flurry of blows shattering the senses with each and every strike. The strategy if we can call it such, a one dimensional get up that plays out like so: endless pummel and no compromise, this is not just a general rule of thumb, but the very paradigm to Human Cull's decibel firestorm. No single note or howl even on the microscopic level misdirects or poses detriment to the warpath nor the ferocity of the assault, in fact the very existence and utility of every note is to tote that industrious continuum of carnage. A solitary strategy does not yield solitary results however, expect a dynamic interplay of catatonic emotions to besiege you, tortuous blends of fear, pain, misery and anger all bleed into one another leaving you fatigued and traumatised, no reprieve in sight. Some will cower and others will stand tall to the punishment, but in their end none are spared the onslaught, for even those battered few able to withstand the seemingly endless artillery barrages of blast beats, demonic howls and cleaving riffs will find themselves chocked on the noxious smog of 5 and a half minute final track behemoth Echoing Silence , a flesh searing soundscape built to indiscriminately gas one and all in a pyrrhic act of vengeance.
HUMAN CULL are a three piece crustgrind power trio from the South West of the UK. They formed in mid-2011 from the ashes of a previous act. The band’s sound is influenced by 80’s grindcore and crust bands such as Napalm Death, Doom, Fear of God, Discharge and Terrorizer as well as more recent acts such as Nasum, Gadget, Nuclear Death Terror and 324.
Since their formation in 2011, HUMAN CULL have quickly become one of the UK grind scene’s most reliable entities, alongside bands like Atomçk, The Atrocity Exhibit and, of course, The Afternoon Gentlemen. Their debut full-length ‘Split Second Extinction’ featured in many grind freak’s ‘Best of 2012′ lists, and with good reason too!
After finishing last year with a split 7″ and extensive UK tour with tech-grinders OBLIVIONIZED, HUMAN CULL have hit the ground running in 2014. The band put out a free digital EP last month, and have just put the finishing touches on their new album, the absolutely face peeling ‘Stillborn Nation’. Taking the classic ’80s grind blueprint and incorporating elements of more contemporary grind, crust and death metal, Human Cull make the grind sound their own whilst retaining that rabid, acidic quality that made the genre sound so potent to begin with. It goes without saying that if you dig blastbeats, you’re going to adore this, but this is so furious that we’d bet even those bitter old dudes who claim Napalm Death died after ‘FETO’ are going to fall upon this.
