Horrible Earth – Typical Human Behavior
Label: Destructive Fungus Records
Release Date: May 3, 2016
I heart grindcore. I heart Boston. I heart Boston’s grindcore chaos mongers, Horrible Earth. Their latest release, Typical Human Behavior, is a tour de grind. The album taps multiple veins of the genre while managing to stay unique and original. From Blood Duster grooves to Brutal Truth punk-infused mayhem, Typical Human Behavior has it all.
The album’s 14 tracks clock in at 13:59. Horrible Earth packs a ton of punishment into that 13:59. At times they beat you old school, and then they get creative and hurt you in new ways. S.A. Milionis (vocals) berates you with a graveled voice soaked in abhorrence. Fränk Remick (guitar), Tom Lee (of Boston’s own For the Worse – guitar), and Alex Lynch (bass) bring the barbarous contempt. Tim Morse (Anal Cunt’s original and final drummer) drives the march for humanity’s end.
Start to finish, Typical Human Behavior is a reflection of man’s failure. It is also lesson in grindcore done properly. Horrible Earth make it blistering, despicable, and savage. They show you how it is done, and I am pretty sure they hate you more than you hate them.
