The Human Error

Rated 4.2/5 (84%) (5 Votes)

Suspicious Ed Repka wannabe cover artwork, even more suspicious logo and name which wouldn't be hard to mistake for Destruction, songs about global disaster... Yeah this is some more thrash metal. Destitution's sound is a suitably European style of thrash, particularly in their sense of melody which is always a boon. The vocals are like a deeper set Mille Petrozza which is cool, and is definitely a slight more enjoyable than some of the Yank yappers doing the rounds at the moment.

My only real problem with Destitution is that they rely too much on their guitar melodies, sometimes resulting in the actual thrashing taking a backseat which is somewhat of a big no-no. In saying that though, it's the double-edged sword effect; as that element of their sound is what sets Destitution apart from their legions of competition. For the most part though The Human Error EP is certainly enjoyable, and Destitution have potential, all the band really need is a little more in the way of fiery energy and we could see something really cool from them.
