Son of Man have returned with four scathing tracks of black-metal inspired hardcore with the “Burn the Witch” 7” (KOTM 47). Also mixing elements of thrash, hardcore, and punk, the folks in Son of Man have morbidly constructed an air of dread, despair, abject nihilism and skull-crushing barbarism. Title track “Burn the Witch” seems bent on destruction within the first few seconds, while “Last Cries of the Dead” pounds along at the same maniacal pace. Standout track “Chiroptophobia” gets off to a blistering start, only to slow to a doomed-out dirge half-way through. The EP was recorded by Alex Estrada at The Earth Capital Studios (Nails, Touche Amore, Xibalba) during the winter months of 2012 / 2013.
Formed in 2006 by John Spence and Mike Browne in Southern California, Son of Man self-released their debut S/T 7” back in 2010, that featured artwork by the enigmatic Dwid Hellion. The band refuse to play live, opting instead to play their “end of the world” anthems in undisclosed “bunkers” across Southern California.
