Melodic death metal upcomers Once Human have been pretty quiet on the music front, working on a bunch of new material and we’ve just heard our first taste of it all in the form of ‘Sledgehammer‘ which packs a pretty solid punch, showcasing Sydney’s own Lauren Hart up front with her now iconic growls and singing.
The band, for those not in the know, was formed by Machine Head/Soufly guitarist Logan Mader and in the few short years they’ve been around, they’ve accumulated a nice little following in the process.
On the new song, Logan says:
“Sledgehammer smashes from start to finish. With insane riffs, relentless drumming and Lauren Hart just kills it! Vocally showcasing totally new and powerful cleans in the massive chorus hook, it marks a new chapter in Once Human sound. I had tons of fun producing and mixing this track. Utilizing more analog gear than I normally do it’s really explosive. Our last album sounds good but this one actually smokes it.”
If you like what you hear, stay tuned for more in 2020. Let’s hope they make good on that cancelled Australian tour from last year…
