There's no doubt Homo Homini Lupus has a lot on their minds and that they're really eager to get the message across. They use their entire arsenal of crusty riffs, grinding drums, roaring and grunting vocals in an effort of making themselves heard - both musically and lyrically. And I'm the first to admit that they succeed quite well with this, even though I unfortunately find this to be quite uninteresting, no matter how loud and brutal they might be - the music simply lack that last ingredient I'm looking for.
If you break it down and look at all the parts of which this twelve track CD is built up on you won't find any big flaws as they have quite powerful riffs with both heavy rhythms and intense rage, a suiting sound which is far from clean but at the same time not too rough, and with the addition of all three members chipping in on vocal duties giving it an extra level of aggression. Still, I maintain that there's something missing. I can't quite put my finger on it, but as a whole I'd say the tracks on here aren't memorable enough, even though there is the occasional track that stands out. Worth looking into if you're on the hunt for a brutal käng/crust mix with grind tendencies as you might find something that I'm not. [Krogh - December 20, 2008] .
