Would you believe that it’s been 20 years since groove/nu and alternative metal ruled the airwaves? This music was big and bold with its downtuned guitars, harsh vocals and ability to form a violent mosh pit the drop of a hat. Recently, this music has had a revival and one such band are Once Human, who are riding the crest of the wave with their latest album ‘Scar Weaver’.

                As far as  albums go, ‘Scar Weaver’ is a wonderful piece of contemporary heavy metal; in fact, this will be one of best produced groove metal albums you’ll hear all year. It’s very big and it is clinical, and this gives ‘Scar Weaver’ a real massive appeal to a wide demographic with tracks such as ‘Eidolon’, ‘Bottom Feeder’ and ‘Only In Death’ drive with the power of In Flames, DevilDriver and Machine Head, the latter isn’t a surprise considering the band contains Logan Mader of Machine Head and Soulfly fame. However, the plaudits here go to Lauren Hart who roars like a lion giving its best Robb Flynn impression even putting to shame the likes of Alissa White-Gluz with her pipes.

                This album is a concrete primal sledgehammer of great groove metal and a cracking way to start 2022.
