The Ward, formed in 2008, comes from Tiraspol, Moldova, and Part of Humanity is their second album. They call their stuff atmospheric Death Metal and in a way I can relate to that somewhat fitting description. Adding keyboards into your sound does the trick: all of sudden your music becomes way more atmospheric sounding; just listen to Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse for an example of sounding atmospheric. Part of Humanity has the keyboards wrapped around the songs about the same way as they were presented on Emperor's In the Nightside...: they are all over the place, often following their own nearly chaotic sounding path, without giving much support to the other instruments. If you stripped out the keyboards, The Ward would sound just like a heavy Death Metal act that wants to blast out the best they can. Vocalist Disembowel manages to sound truly impressive with his deep, throaty grunts, a bit like Nick Holmes (of Paradise Lost) in his prime. They could improve the structure of their songs a bit more to make their songs sound more interesting.
Part of Humanity is a decent tour de force from The Ward. The potential is there for sure, and the future is unwritten for them yet.
