"The Beginning" EP Review
Afraid of Human are a Hard Rock/Metal band from Warren, PA that look to create some waves in the scene with their recent "The Beginning" EP. Let's dive in and tell you why you need to pick up this EP as quick as possible. "All I Am" kicks off the EP with a high energy via their tremendous guitar work. The Hard Rock sound on the sound brings to mind Five Finger Death Punch and Godsmack. It's a highly infectious, hard rockin' opener that's really easy to appreciate. "Now You Know" has a bit of a Southern draw to it. The Buckcherry influence comes out on the track as it could easily be played on the radio and be rocked out to. The soaring chorus is top notch and really shows off the range of the lead singer perfectly. "Repercussions Of War" is a tad heavier than the previous tracks. The track barrels full speed ahead with its more Metal stylings and really raises the bar in the level of intensity. The track brings to mind Hellyeah and the track is a testament to how heavy the band can go when they want to. "Walk With Me" slows things down a bit in the beginning before blasting full speed ahead with a high octane sound. The headbanging appeal is off the charts with the track as the riffs keep coming and the melodies are catchy as hell. The closing track "My Everything" is exhilarating and a real treat to listen to. If you want a song that encapsulates the Afraid of Human sound, this is it. The track has a lot going for it and doesn't hold back. Afraid of Human are for real and fans of Hard Rock/Metal need this EP in their lives.
