Debauchery
Fuck Humanity




Company: Napalm
Release: 2015
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson

  • Death metal with a twist



  • Debauchery is a fairly interesting band. Pretty funny song titles and seriously angry death metal combine to form a rather entertaining album--"Fuck Humanity". Overly aggressive, yet pretty straightforward death metal, "Fuck Humanity" plays like most DM releases out there--over the top, heavy riffing with some injections of melody in for flavor; guttural, raspy vocals and blast beats and bass lines that will make your heart jump around in your ribcage. The vocals are both typical and atypical of death metal. While the guttural quality is there, it's not so much a chest rattling growl as it is more of a raspy delivery--Cookie Monster after he's eaten an entire bag of Chips Ahoy and has no milk available. Song titles like "Murderbrute Minotaurs", "Gorezilla" and "Zombie Extermination Crusader" crack me up and make me smile a little when I see them play across my display. All in all, it's a decent DM album with a few little nuances here and there but not enough to make it stand out. If you're looking for some DM with a twist, this one is for you.

    5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
    4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
    3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
    3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
    2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
    1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
    0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

    Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

    Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

    The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
