Pyre - Human Hecatomb

Human Hecatomb
by Aaron "Five Magics" Price at 17 October 2014, 10:24 AM

From the home of the mother land comes the madness of Death Metal, through Chaos Records, PYRE, are making their mark little by little. This album is 9 songs of madness, true straight to the point Death Metal that so many bands do, so what makes these guys stand out you say? Well I'll give you what I've gathered and you can decide for yourself if they stand out enough to check out. Continue reading if you like bands like DEATH and more appropriately, OBITUARY.

To start us into the album we are greeted by a solid bass intro into "Merciless Disease" and not to long into the song it transitions well into going from being a mid tempo track to a hectic one. After the first chorus this song gets perfectly headbang worthy, the riffs and the tempo is absolutely perfect to get a full headbang on, not one of those put your head down and bob as quick as you can to try to keep up style of headbangs and this keeps up. About half way through the album you'll find a track called "Flesh To Poles" and it's the kind of thing you'd expect to hear on the new OBITUARY album. The tempo is steady, the instrumentals are killer and the vocals are badass, not guttural or impossible to understand and also very distinguishable. This song is steady for the most part, with a cool, not quite guitar solo, but guitar section that you don't hear very often and especially not in Death Metal that adds to the song really well. Finishing out the album is "Disturbia" and I'll be honest I was hoping this would be a cover, if any of you know who I was hoping was covered you'll go "this guy's fucked" but hey, I listen to a lot of CHILDREN OF BODOM so it's not like I don't know weird covers. Anyways, this song is a very DEATH style song with an "upbeat" tempo and really nice guitar work in a few sections instead of constant chugging. About halfway through the song the instrumentals turn into madness and accelerate with vocals being yelled out quicker to keep up. Eventually you'll hit a break, that leads to yet another perfect headbang section and more nice guitar work. This section more or less being your outro to the entire album minus a little burst in the last second.

Does this album stand out in the Death Metal world? A bit. Is it worth checking out? Most definitely. Will you headbang? Fuck yes. Are you gonna pick it up? Check out the song and let us know. This is the kind of band you want to keep an eye on, they'll surprise you in the future.
