Last Days Of Humanity is (was) one of the most shocking bands in the Grindcore scene, when their masterpiece, called Hymns Of Indigestible Suppuration, was released back in 1999, they shaped a huge spot in the underground for themselves, everyone was talking about how amazing their music was and about how crazy their ultra-gore layout seemed to be. Some years later, after releasing an EP and after the band split-up, they come back with their final work, one of the most brutal albums ever released in music history.

"Putrefaction In Progress" shows a different band to begin with; I remember their past albums being super-catchy with mid-paced riffs and a couple of melodies here and there, but not this time. This new record is all about being the fastest most brutal and destroying band in the scene; I'm not trying to be a psychologist here, but it just sounds like these guys were irritated with their situation and they decided to blast their problems out or something.

Most of the songs have the same structure, which is 36 to 50 seconds of hostile blast-beats, rabid guitar-riffs and distorted bass-lines; there are few tracks that stand out from the others, "The Beauty Of Perfection In Sensible Cruelty" is one of them creating a vibe similar to the music presented in "Hymns Of Indigestible Suppuration". Something is for sure though, yes they have mostly blasts in their disc, but I haven't found a band with a drummer as fast as this guy, I don't care about the way this guy explodes his talent, I just see that he is amazingly good and that's something remarkable for sure.

This album is not for the weak ones; even with the layout being partially mild (contrasting with their older artwork of course) the music is just very fucking brutal, and I mean Goregrind in its sickening best and not for the faint hearted that's for sure. Still this album fails to impress me, it's very good none the less, but the fact that they sacrificed their catchy-groove pace for an omnipresent blast-beat disappointed me badly. If you're a fan of the band you'll be more than pleased with "Putrefaction In Progress", but if you haven't heard their albums I think you better start with "Hymns Of Indigestible Suppuration".

Best Tracks: "The Beauty Of Perfection In Sensible Cruelty", "A Divine Proclamation Of Finishing The Present Existence".

I should receive this cd in the mail any day now...

From what I've heard, this album is more brutal than a midget sodomizing Michael Moore.

Sickening Gore

in the grindcore scene? you did mean goregrind right buddy?
Anyway. I think 7.4 is fine, though I would give it max. a 7, but nvm.
I think the time for LDOH to split-up came back in the 2001/02 because they were just done, there is just nothing more they could do, LDOH did really much for the underground, the opend the gates for many goregrind acts and you've gotta show them respect for that, but now, they're just done.

Good Review.

I finally received this album in the mail yesterday and I am also pretty disappointed. Before listening, I knew the vocals were going to be fakely done by a pitchshifter and I knew the drums were doing to be overdubbed, but I still was eager to hear it. The drums actually sounded like someone hitting a metal pot with a stick really fast and the vocals aren't loud enough (at times) for my taste. Every song is pretty much the same, that is, until I heard track 22ish (don't remember the exact track) and that's when I really started liking it. However, I lost interest in the album shortly after.

Since I'm doing full time work and school, I have a lot of built up anger inside me and this is the perfect music for me right now. Even though I'm disappointed, I do like it. However, I'd probably rate it even lower than Herzy did.

Meh, I thought this album was just bad, especially when compared to HOIS. I'd rate it at maybe a 5.
