Cannibal Animal’s fuzzed-out, ferocious sound has seen strong support from the punk and metal community, with their psych-tinged guitar and frenzied vocals causing Punktastic to describe them as ‘the sound of a human breakdown’.
The Human Manuals EP deals in jagged riffs and thrasher basslines, while sprinting from oi-punk to hardcore and back again. Lead track Grand Theft Manual is gripping and energetic, as if someone has fed Sonic Youth’s DIY guitar sound into a wood-chipper. Elsewhere on the EP fans will find gold in the frantic alt-rock of Cracked, as well as in Fall Down’s classic punk vocals, Pincushion Postcard’s dark bassline, and the frantic doom-metal of I Feel Alive.
