SHARDS OF HUMANITY Unleashes Pre-Release Stream of ‘Cold Logic’ Album

Memphis-based extremists SHARDS OF HUMANITY, in collaboration with Toilet ov Hell, have premiered Cold Logic, the band’s sophomore album!
‘Cold Logic’ (Exclusive Album Stream)
SHARDS OF HUMANITY will unleash Cold Logic April 13 on Unspeakable Axe Records. The band’s second album is an evolved, yet unpretentious display of death metal with the understated intricacy and the straight-ahead barbarity of thrash in its heart.
UAR Store:
Flaming fucken hot fret-fire. Shards Of Humanity evoke the kind of red-hot yet regimented riffing we’ve come to expect from modern acts like Hexecutor and Ripper or even sub-genre stalwarts such as Sadus, Obliveon, and Coroner.”
– Toilet ov Hell 
The best of the best when it comes to raw, aggressive death metal.”
– New Noise Magazine
A death/thrash release that will send shock waves across the planet with such brutal and uncompromising force, that people will drop all their toilet paper to then go and buy a copy of this album.”
– Rock and Metal Temple
This record is technical and intricate, but never feels excessive. The guitar work has been stepped up significantly, and whether through complex riffs, or furious solos, there is never a dull moment.”
– Skull Fracturing Metal
SHARDS OF HUMANITY swam against the tide with the 2014 release of their debut, Fractured Frequencies. That album was a Death-inspired blast of thrashy riffs, blazing tempos and glass-gargling vocals. Instead of leaning into early, primitive Death, as many bands did (and have done since, e.g. Gruesome), SHARDS OF HUMANITY looked to the middle period of the band for influence, hammering strands of Human and Symbolic into new, warped shapes.
Cold Logic sees the band pushing every dimension harder than ever. Vocals are hoarse howls of torment; guitars are bigger and bolder, but without the raw edges sanded off. With Pestilence-like thrash riffing and even an Atheist-reminiscent free jazz freakout, this is an album not at all interested in pretending to be primitive, yet still very much connected to the genre’s beating, blood-drenched heart.
