Unseen Dead

Rated 3.8/5 (76%) (5 Votes)

Costa Rican horde Inhuman have been peddling their brand of Technical Death Metal since 2011, becoming something of a remarkable player in the underground scene during that time. One listen to their latest opus, Unseen Dead, will make it very clear why that is the case. Unsurprisingly, the playing on here is technical and precise, but unlike many other bands of their type, Inhuman never go overboard with showboating musicianship. Frankly, they're more comparable to big names like Kataklysm and Cryptopsy, sporting songwriting that's varied in pace and able to give you neck problems from headbanging whether they play it fast or slow. This is all backed by the crisp guitar work of Jonathan Sanchéz, which adds plenty of heaviness and brutality to the proceedings. The rest of the band aren't slouches either, whether it be the bass wizardry of Kevin Moran, the ass-kicking skin-bashing of Juriel Barquero's, and the hateful, ugly grunts of Gabriel Martinez, all of which together create an album that's filled to the brim with detailed musicianship that never overloads the compositions. Fans of Death Metal with an edge of technicality will want to put this band on their radar, along with this album in their collection.
