Inhuman Condition – Fearsick (Review)

Inhuman Condition - FearsickInhuman Condition are a death metal band from the US and this is their second album.

Featuring current and ex-members of bands such as Death, Deicide, Massacre, Obituary, Six Feet Under, Venom Inc., and Wombbath, you know a lot of experience and skill has gone into Fearsick. Across 36 minutes Inhuman Condition subject us to a competent collection of songs that are just plain fun.

This is old-school death metal packed with hooks and lethal riffs. It’s a feast of Floridian death metal that sounds like it could have come straight out of the 80s or early 90s. Inhuman Condition’s straightforward death metal is easy to digest and effortlessly fun and enjoyable.

The songs sound great, in pretty much every department. The songwriting is tried-and-tested, but without sounding jaded or tired. The drums are warm and organic, but also have weight to them. The bass is the underpinning power that keeps everything in check. The vocals are harsh-yet-legible. Finally we come to the guitars, which in many ways steal the show; thrash-edged and with so many authentic old-school riffs that still sound fresh, it’s ridiculous how good they are.

It’s hard to listen to these songs and not get carried away by their enthusiastic delivery and pure death metal joy. Inhuman Condition have crafted a thoroughly enjoyable slab of classic Florida death metal.

For those that can’t get enough of the classic style, this has to be one that you check out.
