Igneous Human Pyroclastic Storms

Igneous Human Pyroclastic Storms
Seeing as this quintet are forged from the ashes of Swedish metal brigade Gaphia, Igneous Human don't stray too far from their previous formula. The majority of Pyroclastic Storms is very clinical Swedish death metal moderately influenced by black metal, in terms of vocals and new hardcore permeating their overall pacing. Throw in some melodic solos and staccato breakdowns and there you go: the Gothenburg sound with a bit of sub-generic fusion. Not bad, but also not exactly unique or boundary-pushing, the album winds up feeling like another one of those discs that most will appreciate, but not necessarily feel an urge to hear repeatedly. It's a dish best served on shuffle so that when a song starts, ears perk up from the familiarity and the inability to peg who it is screeching over those sterile riffs forces you to look.
