Roel de Haan : Right, well. Uhmm. At least its different… The Spanish duo Inhumankind deliver an album called ‘Self-Extinction’. Don’t expect misanthropic black metal, these guys play experimental, avant-garde jazz. Based on double-bass and flute, the only thing metal the music offers is that is structured as a metal album. So instead of riffs played on electric guitar we have the flute and drums are replaced by the double-bass. The flute as a riffing instrument is clever, but after a while it turns out quite nerve-wrecking. Luckily some vocals offer some logic to the music that is admittedly quite out there. Some are growls and some are more classical, but at least their role is logical. It is bold to put these instruments into a metal-structure, but the result on ‘Self-Extinction’ is unfortunately hardly heart-warming.
