Death Grind rabble The Human Race Is Filth will release new album Cognitive Dissonance on March 10. The album’s first single, “Propagating Technology,” is available now at:
Sonic violence abounds, as The Human Race Is Filthchurn out a new slab of death-grinding disorientation. And that’s just the music. Lyrically, the band is back at it with straight-to-the-point content covering topics like mental health, socioeconomic injustice, technology, personal struggle, and privilege. No quarter, no reprieve, no place to hide. Time to duck and cover.
In the band’s own words:
“We wrote this album from August to November 2021 and were really going for straight out Death Grind with a touch of d-beat and Hardcore mixed in. We wanted dirtier guitar and bass tones, more aggressive drums, and more extreme vocals compared to the first three releases and we believe we accomplished those things on this release.”

Notes on the Recording Sessions:
Recorded at The Kaleidoscope Lancaster PA November/December 2022.
Engineered and Mixed by Ben Roth.
Mastered by Joel Grind from Toxic Holocaust (mastered Power Trip/Lord Dying/Toxic Holocaust/Poison Idea/Coliseum/ & more).
Vocalist Kasey had his Son (toddler) speak in the beginning of “Life of Tyrants.”
There was a noise track recorded on every song throughout the entire recording, sometimes prominent in mix, sometimes faint.
Had an issue with the bass guitar day of recording and was lent a bass from Kuyler from the band SLEEPSCULPTOR (Mathcore Psychos on Silent Pendulum Records) at the last minute, literally the day the bass tracks were laid down!
