SHARDS OF HUMANITY
"FRACTURED FREQUENCIES"
UNSPEAKABLE AXE RECORDS

When you think about the great state of Tennessee you think of country music,
Graceland, and mountain regions. But, some people don't know that it's home to a
incredible little Death Metal and Thrash band called
SHARDS OF HUMANITY. They
started as a two piece with Todd Cochran as (vocalist / guitarist) and Ryan Mcalister as
(drummer) and later on they added Larry Mercado as the (second guitarist) for there debut
album to make the bands sound even more intense and menacing. You can call them a
diamond in the ruff or in their case a shard maybe even a knifes blade trying to portray the
bands imagery of broken glass or razors edge. The band formed in 2009 releasing an EP
which is self titled off of
UNSPEAKABLE AXE RECORDS, who is a spin off of the
mighty
DARK DESCENT RECORDS. UNSPEAKABLE AXE RECORDS is based
out of Athens Georgia, and they have other really cool bands on there label, so check them
out. In 2014 they released their bone crushing debut "FRACTURED FREQUENCIES"
and in my mind its a masterpiece because of the really heavy, chunky riffs, guttural vocals
and drumming that was as fast and is as great as lot of Death Metal drummers I ever
heard. Here is a little fun fact for you!
SHARDS OF HUMANITY is one of the first
bands ever to be a two piece before they added a third member, NOW it's a lot more
common! It doesn't matter how many people are in this band they still sound insane. I
hope to hear more from them in the future. This is band for fans who like
DEATH,
MEGADETH and CARCASS.
