DEHUMAN REIGN – Releasing on July 26th, 2013, via FDA Rekotz is the menacing debut album, Destructive Intent, from Berlin’s Death Metal squad: Dehuman Reign. With (about) 20 minutes of face-melting Death Metal to be devoured on Destructive Intent, the keep it short, fast and deadly approach in which Dehuman Reign ventures into is not a bad idea at all. The shortened album approach in Metal has succeeded in the past, with Slayer’s Reign In Blood being the untouchable template for generations of bands and fans to savor.
Here we have Dehuman Reign and not Slayer, so the comparisons can stop with lengths of albums. With that said, Dehuman Reign rages along with a Gore Metal meets Death Metal sound; a blanket of sound that’s terrifying enough to put some of your worst nightmares to their knees. Morbid vocals and extreme speed musically, the two marry into each other with a perfection that only we Death and Gore Metal fans can wholly appreciate.
With killer album art and equally killer songs, what more can any savvy Death/Gore/Extreme Metal fan want? I’ll tell you this much, with this album playing and the lights turned off, Dehuman Reign easily can scare the shit out of me; especially the evil provoking spoken word tracks of: Invocation I Black Seed and Invocation II Scorched Earth. Whatever the deadly case may be, the melancholic vibes and darkness that lurks behind these spoken words are what keeps me up late at night and I’ll never learn my lesson; cause this is the underground Metal I crave for. Metal be thy name.
