Anatomia, "Human Lust"

E-mail Print PDF
cover imageThis Japanese trio have obviously been working hard since 2005’s Dissected Humanity as this tape demonstrates. Human Lust (although not exactly tearing up the rulebook) sees the band pushing their filth even further. Here their music is slower and more brutal than before, making the music something genuinely unpleasant. This is the lead of old school New Orleans sludge and the rusty blade of Florida death metal being combined to make a disturbing and heavy alloy.



Dissected Humanity was a serviceable if forgettable album; to my ears Anatomia made the kind of death metal that has been done to, well, death since it was perfected in the early '90s. Their worship of classic death metal is more than obvious from the moment I opened the package containing Human Lust. This tape looks exactly like a holy relic from the golden age of death metal with its Xeroxed cover, gory Lovecraftian artwork and a polite thank you note from the band to the purchaser.

Over the course of the three songs on the cassette, Anatomia shroud their old school violence in more darkness. Elements of Eyehategod and Obituary echo down the chasm that Anatomia have created. As with Dissected Humanity, this is not paradigm shifting reinvention but Human Lust is an awesome and thrilling release.
