After the recently released “Symbiosick” single, French Death Metal heavy weights Ad Patres continue the unveiling of new album “A Brief Introduction to Human Experiments” with the unleashing of a brand new lyric video for the song “Spellbound”.
Away from all trends, with “A Brief Introduction to Human Experiments” Ad Patres continues the path started with their critically-acclaimed debut, “Scorn Aesthetics”: the glorious Death Metal path on which brutality and technique are used as means, not as aims.
Much more aggressive than redundant Slam Death, way more direct and uncompromising than boring Tech Death and without an ounce of the regressive nostalgia of the “Old-School”, Ad Patres creates the perfect balance between musicianship and heaviness, topping it with lyrics delving deep into the human mind’s darkest recesses.
As such, “A Brief Introduction to Human Experiments” makes a somber parallel between psychology and religion, blurring the thin line between those two mind-manipulation “schools” clearly showing psychology is the new Christianity and psychoanalysts the new inquisitors of the “right way of thinking” through a relentless, pure Death Metal, album that dissects both (religion and psychology), like twisting the brain in a split wide open skull.
