Liberate is filthy, grimy and as in your face as it possibly can be as it ushers forth eight new grinding tracks tinged with murky sludge and blasphemous doom. The Human Race Is Filth move from track to track like a wrecking ball through each of their eight new tracks presenting you with an all out aural and startling assault. Never do you get a break from the immense amount of punishment that THRIF dishes out as they rattle off track after track of scorching and pummeling metal that is sure to twist your neck. Liberate is a short release but a potent and powerful one none the less as it packs a massive and bone shattering punch.
Once you lift your finger off of the play button, chaos ensues as THRIF hits you hard and fast with their opener Native Biological Warfare. This establishment burning track sets the tone for the rest of Liberate, and that tone is vicious, nasty and punishing. The tracks that follow Native Biological Warfare are just as detrimental and tempestuous as they ladle out heaping doses of sludge filled grind until you become buried under all of the carnage. Each track is a filthy and ripping offering that snaps your head back before you get a chance to fully appreciate all of the harsh metallic noise.
Though the base for their oppressive sound is grind, THRIF implements both doom and sludge elements in to their sound very well creating an overall gritty, destructive and gnarled sound that is hard to shake. Fueled by jarring riffs, ever charging drumming and vocals steeped in pure animosity, THRIF gift you with an overall head caving listen. The eight tracks within Liberate aren’t so subtle as they charge out of the gate immediately accosting you at every single twist and turn. Whether THRIF greets you with a blitzkrieg of grind or down tempo foundation shaking doom, you understand that you are about to receive a lethal dose of it.
Liberate is an ear drum disintegrating offering, one that is unapologetic and entirely unrelenting. This release is entertaining, heavy as fuck and down right filthy, what more could you want? Each track is crafted well as THRIF’s grind elements play hand in hand with its doom and sludge counterparts only to bring you madness, destruction and a complete neck twisting listen.
