Bound By Modern Age Records released a compilation cassette version of Human Animal’s first releases. I never made a post about BBMA Records before here, so some might be unfamiliar with that label. Also Human Animal is a rather infamous band, so that are two new things that will be elaborated in this post.
Human Animal comes from Erie, Pennsylvania USA. When I heard a bell rang immediately. It is the home base of the band Shockwave that earlier in history was signed to Good Life. And yes, there are members of Shockwave in Human Animal. But that is not all, there are also members of Brother’s Keeper, Disciple AD and Abnegation. Also bands that were signed to Good Life once upon a time and also hailing form the Erie city. All this history coming together in a new band is good to hear. The music they play is energetic and diverse. Sounds not so Metalcore as you might expect from their 90’s background, it sounds more oldschool influenced. Guitar licks and melody mixed into the traditional heavier New York Hardcore sound, Madball comes to mind. Vocals are energetic, that’s the way I like them.
Seems like I caught up late because they already have some release: a demo ep, two split ep’s and a live cassette. Check out the Human Animal bandcamp for more info on their releases and to listen to their music.

Both the cassettes have a nice layout, done by Tim Bound By Modern Age. This label mostly releases cassettes, but also 7 inches now and then, also an LP already. Bound By Modern Age is a DIY non profit label, purely for the passion and the (vegan) message. The name is taken from a Morning Again song of the classic Hand Of Hope release. You can visit the the Bound By Modern Age bigcartel site to check what is available.
They sound awesome. I'll have to pick up a cassette. Thanks for the heads up.
