Of all the promos thrown our way this week by the almighty Ed. of Metal As Fuck, its suprisingly Black Throne Of All Creation by Dehuman - not to be confused with the now defunct Australian band of the same name - that has become the most well received by this reviewer, in particular. After listening to fairly lacklustre affairs from both Kraanium and Stalwart, it's refreshing to hear a band that shows at least a little bit of passion, instead of sounding like they are just going through the motions. Yes, the bands name might be a little mediocre, but don't let that put you off, as Black Throne Of All Creation is a pleasant indulgence.
Perhaps one of the reasons that the album has resonated so much is that Dehuman remind us so much of Dutch band, Pestilence, which is never a bad thing. It's not just the slow paced, doomy riffs that meander throughout Black Throne Of All Creation, but also the vocals of Andrea Vissol, who could easily be Martin van Drunen's twin, at lest vocally. The album has some good solos to boot as well.
Overall, Black Throne Of All Creation is a geuninely pleasing album, with material that is both consistent, and crushing, unlike the above mentioned Stalwart. As we have mentioned, Dehuman do remind us of earlier Pestilence, especially on songs like Down With The World and Cast Of Assassination, and there is no doubt that fans of that band will soon be dusting off their old Pestilence records after just one listen to Black Throne Of Creation. A genuinely good death metal album that will appeal to fans of both Pestilence, as well as those into more technical death metal.
