Circle of Dead Children - _Human Harvest_
(Displeased, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (8 out of 10)
Circle of Dead Children from Pennsylvania have been around for quite a bunch of albums now -- to be exact, _Human Harvest_ is their fourth outing. Currently operating without a bass player, this three-piece is hell-bent on achieving only one thing: sonic terror, or as they put it, "creating aural decimation". Well, _Human Harvest_ comes dangerously close to just that, with its hybrid of Brutal Truth-ish grindcore, Agoraphobic-style hyperfast drumming and Mortician-like grumbling. While never being as good as any of these bands, _HH_ does feature nineteen pretty solid slaps-in-the-face that'll have even the tamest grind-freak banging his head into the walls for the sheer fun of it. Most intriguing are the lyrics, which more than often read like sinister, introspective poetry; rarely does one find such well-written, intelligent lyrics in grind. Production and packaging are sufficient, making _HH_ a good addition to your grind collection.
