Life/Off/Formation is this German quintet's third full-length studio album and Human Debris' take on the melodic aspects of Death Metal seems to be in a fine form. The band manages to sound both harsh and smooth at the same time but they appeal to me more when they switch to the brutal side and turn off the melodic vocal parts. Vocalist Elena Cor Tauri's (also in Trial and [T]error) death grunts make me think of both Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy (ex-Arch Enemy vocalist Angela Gossow, too) and Viktoria Viren from Evil Drive. It cannot be denied that Human Debris play tight together, sounding energetic, brutal and well rehearsed. All in all, Life/Off/Formation has basically everything a melodic Death Metal fan looks for a release of this kind so if you like the genre this might be of interest.
