Someone once described this as "just slams played at a funeral doom pace" as if it were a bad thing. It's not.

Artery Eruption has a longstanding reputation within the slam death metal scene as making some of dumbest (in a good way) and off-kilter slam out there. Brian and Grant Moehler, brothers in the band, are back with a new project, Devouring Humanity, and although it's in a similar vein as Artery Eruption, it's truly it's own beast. The production on this thing, simply put, is phenomenal. The slams and unintelligible riffing sounds almost like some sort of twisted ambient backdrop while the drums play some truly incorrigible and insane rhythms on top of it. The tones on all of the instruments are pitch perfect for the style, and the vocals are typically wonderful. There are a few surprise moments here as well that I'd be foolish to spoil, but they're pretty amazing when they happen. If this is the sound of slam in 2016, then it's in a good place. Also, it's delightfully tongue-in-cheek, because who names their songs "Slams To The Dome" and "Brutality Accomplished" and takes themselves seriously?

Best death metal album for sure. Who knew it would be
released in 2016? Anyways, this pretty much paves the way
for a new frontier in the death metal genre. This
transcends slam and once again Mohler and Torres give us
abstract high-art insanity that also has sick rhythms
throughout.
