Both their band name and album title bring to mind shattered glass and razor-sharp edges. That is perfect imagery for SHARDS OF HUMANITY. They play raw-yet-technically adept death/thrash, influenced by mid-period Death, Sadus, Massacra, Pestilence and other scorching bands with a foot in two related spheres of metal. Yet their sound is unmistakably their own as well, not overly beholden to any one influence or era. Having started as just a two piece, with a drummer and guitarist-slash-vocalist, they were blazing their own trail from the very outset. Now, even with a third member added to beef up their guitar assault, SHARDS OF HUMANITY is still more likely to slash through the crowd than to submerge into it.
SHARDS OF HUMANITY self-released an EP in 2012. Now they will follow that up with their debut full-length, Fractured Frequencies, consisting of seven songs of exhilarating, annihilating, philosophically bent thrash and death metal. Unspeakable Axe Records is proud to deliver this gem from the underground.
"Shards of Humanity listened to all the right bands beneath the mould and then emerged with a collection of songs sure to aid the resurrection of the thrash genre's bloated corpse. Their Tennessean speed metal could be just the right Autumn enema for washing the filth out of your extreme metal colon" - Worm Gear 'Zine
