You may read a number of bios where bands extol their virtues of being the next big thing, as important as Led Zeppelin, inventor of the wheel…

Anger As Art doesn’t do that. They don’t need to.

To know what Anger As Art is, one can look at what they have been since 2004. A first rate, old school, thrash metal band – rooted in the history created by the members of the band. Take one look at their lineage – members of Abattoir, EvilDead, Bloodlust, Hirax, Death, Manowar, Raven, Heretic, Bitch,… and know where they are going.

Primal return with their sophomore album Humachine, an album filled with elements from early thrash bands.

Primal first gained notoriety with the release of their self-titled debut album as they featured members from bands like HIrax and Deliverance as well as the Argentinian bands V8 and Logos. Just like with their debut, Humachine was produced by Grammy –winner Iggy Elisabetsky at D-Organization Studios in Los Angeles with mastering done by Rob Colwell at Bombworks Studios in Texas.

Humachine opens up with “The Cage”, a song with a catchy, heavy riff driving a song that retains a sense of melody. Being my first exposure to the band, I hear element of late 80s-early 90s metal and thrash and to my ears the overall sound and production seems a bit like a throwback to that era. Everything is clear in the mix but the low end seems a bit lost. Alberto Zamarbide’s vocals are smooth and mostly stay in relatively neutral space avoiding the high and low registers.
