Today we are featuring a promising progressive black metal band, Human Traces, based in Berlin, Germany. I have reviewed one of their new songs, Alles Schwarz, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.
I must admit that Human Traces is a powerful collective, blended modern progressive metal with old-school black metal vocals, in the briefest way.
Modern progressive metal is one of the most trendy metal genres out there. I personally have never been a fan of this approach to music, yet there surely are some impressive people out there doing crazy things, simply opening new windows in our imagination. Human Traces, in this way, has succeeded in separating themselves from the rest of the bands and artists in the genre with their solid blend here above everything else, and Alles Schwarz is a good example of it. I haven't heard such a successful combination from anyone else yet.
The two different poles of Human Traces, black metal, and modern progressive metal have equal credit in the outcome in my opinion, yet I am not entirely sure if the band agrees with me that this is what they are special about. First of all, the technicality in their music, the math in their composition is quite impressive. The song offers so many mixed feelings but in a very dark way. On the other hand, the black metal side has the necessary feeling all along. It is an interesting feeling hearing black metal vocals with such instrumentation, and I am sure I am not the only one who thinks that way.
Technically, I'm afraid Alles Schwarz has a standard approach, unlike their musicality. I don't think the personality in their sound is powerful enough for them, this mix is below their musicality.
When I take all these into account, I'd like to say that I've had a good time listening to Human Traces. They already have the necessary origins in their creation, all they need to do is to continue making releases.
Please go ahead and check out the links below if you'd like to find out more about the artist/band, follow them on social media, subscribe to their channels to show your support, and not miss any upcoming releases.
In conclusion, Metalhead Community Team congratulates Human Traces for their impressive job in, Alles Schwarz, and wishes them the very best in their future careers. Thank you for reading.
