Distant's new single "Human Scum" falls somewhere in the middle of brutal deathcore, industrial madness, and whatever the hell it is that Car Bomb does to make their guitars sound like broken computers. I'd say have fun moshing, but this one feels more like you're two seconds away from having an existential crisis about all life being a simulation.
"'Human Scum' is a deathtrap of a track, with a hooky chorus and an impeccable atmospheric soundscape. The tracks adds on to the never ending evolution to Distant songwriting capabilities and the sound of hellscape.
"After Tyrannt's crucible with his father – Tsukuyomi – he suffered a great defeat. Stranded in this new world in his mortal body, he's found by his silent worshippers of the Covenant, who work to help Tyrannt's rebirth into full power again – and, raising his army against the forces of Tsukuyomi to get the ultimate revenge."
