"let's not ignore the straight-ahead devastation of songs like "Forked Tongue Delusion" and "The Circular Strain" and the fact that they unapologetically melt faces."
"It's absurd that so few people are tapping into HD's vision, as opposed to the more generic death metal coming out of Belgium or, you know, everywhere else. It's time for the greater metal community to pay attention to what Denayer is doing with death metal and raise the expectations bar for everybody else."
- Dan Lake, for Chronicles of Chaos.
"Mostly, the reason Humanity Defiled resonates with me is that they sound quite a lot like Bolt Thrower, and that’s never a bad thing. Atop their steamroller drive, these songs are given room to breathe, the riffs balanced nicely between chunky chords and ominous melodies, the tempos ranging from double-kick-driven thrashing to doom-paced trudges."
"I must say that The Demise Of The Sane is a more-than-pleasant surprise, all told, a one-man band that doesn’t bore me after a few tunes."
- Andrew Edmunds, for Last Rites.
This the second Humanity Defiled album.
Again, a lot of work has been put into these songs.
And again, it mainly is a means to ventilate frustrations that I deal with on a lot of days. Things i see, hear and deal with every day, are found here. Check the lyrics and feel free to ask me about them.
The SSD cover on this album is there, because SSD, and the myth surrounding them, always inspired me. Although I was too young at the time they were great.
For the instrumental track 'loss', i was accompanied by Alexander Swaelens who played some very terrific leads on that piece.
Last but not least, the beautiful art for 'tdots' was done by Kevin Hensels. His drawings are awesome and he deserves to be recognized. Also, check out his band Hemelbestormer.
I hope you all enjoy the music.
