The Human Paradox
Transcending Obscurity India

Review: Plague Throat was originally formed around 2006, or so they claim, but it wasn’t until 2013 they put out their debut ep An Exordium to Contagion. Fast forward to 2017 and here we have their debut album The Human Paradox. The name of the game is technical death metal the US style.

Basically there’s nothing wrong on the album. From technical point of view, everything is alright. Sounds are heavy and clear. Playing is accurate and skillful. Growling vocals are something you’d expect from any good band in the genre: deep and brutal. So, in theory The Human Paradox is a good album.

But, when it really comes to the question would I spend some 10 or 15 bucks/euros on this, the answer would be no. Why? Because in the end this really leaves no mark in the genre. Everything is alright and nothing is really wrong, but is that – in the end – enough? Not for me. Still, I gotta say this band has a lot of potential. Plague Throat is not the most fierce or most brutal band on earth, but its technical stuff is interesting. Just the songwriting is not as catchy or innovative as it could. It’s not like this is Death of 2010’s or anything.

However, if you’re looking for a new name in this particular genre, why not check this out?
