American one-man aural monstrosity Human Failure debuts with its first ever offering “Crown on the Head of a King of Mud”, a mangled and gnarled disfiguration of raw death metal, raw punk and harsh noise spewn from the outer limits of complete nihilism and inhumanity. Band mastermind D. elaborates on the project:
“Lyrical themes mostly have to do with the repugnancy of living in America these days. The goal was to take a punk (and political/socioeconomic) mentality and mesh it with the pummeling rage of death metal. I chose to layer in noise to add to the extremity and painfulness of the sound, as I think living in this society is really a chore and more painful than most people will admit to themselves. And because whenever I’ve made noise music in the past, I’ve always tended to be depressed and I wanted to add that energy as well. I think hidden depression compliments the project name, Human Failure, particularly well, as the project is entirely about humanity’s failure to retain just that – its own humanity and morality. “Crown on the Head of a King of Mud” is fairly on the nose, but essentially it’s just a jab at those who are perceived as “in control.”
Influences are Discharge, Disrupt, Extreme Noise Terror, Entombed, Grave, Barnes-era Cannibal Corpse.
“Crown on the Head of a King of Mud” will be released on May 7 2021 by Caligari Records (10″ vinyl/tape) and Sentient Ruin (10″ vinyl/digital).
