"We've always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences," drummer Chris Mills said about Harm's Way's upcoming LP Posthuman. From the sound of "Human Carrying Capacity," new directions won't compromise their clobbering assault.
The track's metallic tendencies definitely come through strong through riffage and rhythm, while the industrial manifests more through jackhammer groove rather than overtly influencing the song structure. This is all well and good, considering the Chicago band's primal sound holds up just fine on its own. "To a Harm's Way fan, I would describe Posthuman as a blend of Isolation(2011) and Rust (2015), but it's sonically way more insane," says guitarist Bo Lueders, emphasizing how they'll remain rooted hardcore as they push their music to the limit. "To anyone else, I would simply say it's full on heavy and full on aggression."
Check out the song bellow, and keep an eye out for Posthuman when it releases on Feb. 9.
