ARTIST: Fierce Cult
Spanish death metal outfit Fierce Cult emerged from the ashes of The Seed, and being on the road since 2007, they have found themselves a mission – a mission to channel their anger, their frustration with modern society and its problematic standards, to bring people together and to make them mosh. They’re making the music they as fans would like to hear and their integrity is paying off, as the band has been landing underground hits since the very beginning. Fierce Cult’s new studio album Where Humanity Ends takes the aggressive sound of The Seed’s previous two albums to a more technical realm.
It was made under difficult circumstances which demanded near inhumane levels of endurance of the band, and it shows: The album is distilled, collective rage, as much an insurrection against the commodification of human lives on the brink of extinction as it is about the emotional damage incurred through small-scale interpersonal conflicts. “Death reaches everyone, even when the blood splatters don’t stain your door”, shouts vocalist and guitarist Koko in the title track. Fellow thrashers Jorge Molano (drums) and David Rivilla (guitar/bass) chime in like precision machinery with their aggressive, ever darkening play and sound citing greats such as Pantera, Meshuggah and Behemoth. Equal parts technical and brutal, Where Humanity Ends is a powerful 12-track attack on our cushy lives that is going to turn heads and make ‘em bang.
Fierce Cult proclaim: “The cult keeps growing uglier and stronger every day, the monster never stops”.
