metal rules swag

March 2005
Released: 1991, Relativity Records
Rating: 5.0/5
Reviewer: El Cid

Ok, picture this. You are a man with a vision, a very big vision… you go and bring to your side a drummer called Sean Reinert (Cynic), a guitarist named Paul Masvidal (again, Cynic) and a Bass player dubbed Steve DiGiorgio (Sadus), what do you get? HOLY CRAP! You get another incarnation of Death. A superstar band led by Evil Chuck himself. Now, what do you get when you toss them all into the studio? That’s right, you get a comback from the bland SPIRITUAL HEALING, but what else?? You get one of the best metal recordings ever released. You get HUMAN.

What makes HUMAN just a Juggernaut of an album you ask? Well, it has it all! It might be the Jazz/Fusion influence, it might be the incredibly tight and technical performance on every single instrument, it might be the beautiful song writing, the take it or leave it vocal approach or simply the knowledge that this is the cornerstone of technical death metal around the world. Take your pick, this is a milestone in the purest sense of the word.

I’m sure you have heard of Sean Reinert’s mastery of drums, trust me, if you haven’t actually heard him, you don’t have a clue. When this came out back in ’91, there were a bunch of very good drummers all over the world, but Sean’s “underground” legend is well earned as he in this album obliterated all percussive competition around the world. No bullshit here, the way this palys the drums in this particular recording is breath taking. To that add, Chuck and Paul’s shredding and Steve DiGiorgio’s inventive and breakneck bass playing and you have yourself an album for the history books.

No mistakes, any self-respecting metalhead should own this album or nothing will be complete.
