Utter Human Annihilation
(Godz Ov War Productions)
MISANTHROPIC WAR from Germany started its journey back in 2021 with its debut EP “Bestial Genocide”. Almost nothing can be found about their formation and who is playing what! But one thing is certain, they are playing bestial Death Metal with a hellbent combination of War Metal at full throttle. Despite being anonymous, their “Bestial Genocide” EP had four furious tracks fuelled with the wild, chaotic energy of the War Metal forebears that preceded them. It’s a little bit old school with modern production and with a lot of fanatically good riffs and a lot of rough energy. But MISANTHROPIC WAR didn’t stop there and now releasing their debut full-length album “Utter Human Annihilation”. As the sound was hinted in the EP, the full length is a brutal and unrelenting assault of Black and Death Metal with all the stenches of war. Humans are constantly showing their disgusting capability of raging violent and poisonous war after war. And it almost feels like MISANTHROPIC ART took all of that filth and shaped a sonic storm loosely inspired by bands such as ARCHGOAT, BLASPHEMY, BESTIAL WARLUST, CONQUEROR, BLACK WITCHERY, INFERNAL CURSE, IMPETIOUS RITUAL and BLACK CURSE. Throughout the album’s length of just below 35 minutes, all the riffs and blast beats are present the entire time, but that’s exactly what you can expect from thirteen tracks here. The war machine rolls on with the beginning of ‘Conquer And Eliminate’, ‘Total Nuclear Holocaust’, ‘Kill Them All’, ‘Pulverization’, ‘Siege And Incinerate’, ‘Hail Of Bombs’, ‘Civilization Collapse’, and till the end with ‘Final Purge’ – there is nothing but uncompromising violence and endless convulsions. The similar, we all sense about war and its bestiality. In terms of arrangements, you would get that the anonymous Germans don’t reinvent anything, but there are some sharp and headbang-worthy interjections from the sidelines along with upsetting vocal lines. The production did its part to amplify the whole madness to the highest peak. Still, at some moments, the album might get repetitious. It’s part of the style of play, and will also remind all about the relentless and repetitious hunger of humans to wage wars and push all minds to the edge of absurdity. The cover is also great, which accurately captures what is happening on the album. With all that, MISANTHROPIC WAR’s devastating debut upheld everything to receive praises from the genre faithful’s and certainly, some following for their upcoming endeavours.
