Koen B. : Humungus isn’t a brand new act. They were formed in 2010 in Richmond / Virginia and have self-released a demo CD ‘Drinkin’ A Beer’ in 2011, a seven inch titled ‘Shark Castle’ (2012) on Forcefield Records and a self-released full-length that goes by the name ‘Warband’ (2015). Recently the German Killer Metal Records label have cont(r)acted Humungus and now ‘Warband’ is re-released and available on European territory as well. The difference between the original and the re-release is digipack versus jewel case CD. The songs are the same.
I quite enjoyed this CD. Humungus plays energetic heavy metal with predominant bass lines, think Superchrist (U.S.A.) and Gunslinger (U.K.). I still wonder what has become of these great acts, but I think they have vanished from the face of the earth. Honestly who needs them if Humungus destroys and kills your spare time with ‘Warband’? Humungus is a band at war and they’ve got nothing to lose. Another bullseye for Killer Metal Records with this one. I hope a new Humungus album will see the light of day soon.
