The Album

Away from all trends, AD PATRES continues with “A Brief Introduction to Human Experiments”, 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 psychanalysts the new inquisitors of the “right way of thinking” through a relentless, pure Death Metal, album that dissects both (religion and psychology) through a part each, like twisting the brain in a split wide open skull.

Not recommended for the faint of heart, this is French Haute Suture.
