Perishing Humanity are a band from Ukraine that plays a mixture of brutal technical death metal and deathcore and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Monument Of Human Lies And Hypocrisy" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with some heavy death/grind riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast that are very heavy and brutal sounding ehich combine death metal, grindcore and deathcore together with alot of technical sounding riffing being thrown into the music, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very technical sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mixture of deep death metal growls and high pitched grindcore screams, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it and you can hear all of the musical instruments  that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Perishing Humanity are a very great sounding brutal/technical death metal/deathcore hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Interminable" "Bloody Red Product" and "Left To Die". RECOMMENDED BUY.

OccultBlackMetal (Variety Of Death Zine)

If you would ask a random person if he accidentally happens to know a few modern death metal bands, I suspect there is little chance that he will mention a band from Ukraine. Perishing Humanity might change this. The band is indeed coming from this country and plays music in the vein of The Black Dahlia Murder, All Shall Perish and Suicide Silence. And not unimportant; in terms of quality, they are definitely not inferior to their stylemates from the other side of the big Atlantic!
The music is aggressive and full of raging blastbeats, fast riffing and heavy breakdowns. The songs are executed with deadly precision. 100% Western in terms of quality and East-European at the same time. The total playing time is not even 30 minutes, but I think this will not disturb the real fan of the genre. For me personally, this half hour is a perfect playing time for this intense kind of music. Perishing Humanity is not losing itself in playing as many notes as possible, but has taken the time to write memorable songs. Most of the songs contain breakdowns, which are a welcome variety in between the blastbeats. Practically no originality on this album, but the band is playing a modern subgenre that is very popular these days. If the band (with the help from the label) is able to reach the Western market, I can see this band become popular in our regions.

Staight from nowhere Perishing Humanity released its debut album on Metal Scrap Records with no demo or EP prior to it, nothing to make the band's presence felt, at least not outside Ukraine. Anyway, this is a band composed of pretty young guys, formed in 2008, a band that has cosen Deathcore as their path so from the start I have my restraints, I'm not actually a fan of the nowadays Deathcore scene. What I like about this CD are the fantastic instrumental abilities of these young guys, the music ranges from mid-tempo to ultra-fast, filled with bastbeats and psycho guitar leads. Unfortunately the drums sound a bit too synthetic for my taste, I guess they were programmed or the triggers were not that well mastered afterwards. Eugene, the guitarist is a mad maniac that has a bright future ahead, but the rest of the members are doing their fair share of technical work on this album. Such a release is damn impressive for its technical display, but it lacks on emotions, and that's the main goal for any band in this genre I think, to come up with a perfect balance between theis psycho ideas and emotions.

Aus der Extrem-Szene der Ukraine stammen PERISHING HUMANITY, deren erstes Lebenszeichen ?berhaupt direkt ihr Deb?t-Lonplayer ist. Das Quartett besteht seit vier Jahren und hat sich ausgiebig mit den Ideen, Songs und Fertigkeiten von Bands wie Suicide Silence, Despised Icon, All Shall Perish, fr?hen Job For A Cowboy, The Black Dahlia Murder etc. besch?ftigt. „The Monument Of Human Lies And Hypocrisy“ steht f?r viel DeathCore und manchmal ein wenig Tech Death. Die sieben St?cke, von denen eines auch noch als Bonus deklariert wird, rauschen in Windeseile am H?rer vorbei. Es braucht keine halbe Stunde, dann sind PERISHING HUMANITY schon durch. Verwunderlich ist das nicht, wenn man sich vor Augen h?lt, dass die ukrainische Gruppe ihr Heil ein ums andere Mal in irren Blastbeats und verr?ckter Gitarrenarbeit im Highspeed-Bereich sucht. Dem Quartett geht es um Geschwindigkeit und die Zurschaustellung des eigenen spielerischen Verm?gens. Wenige Breakdowns, etwas Mosh und ein Mindestma? an Melodie m?ssen reichen, um das Deb?t fl?ssig und die H?rer interessiert zu halten. Dieser Ansatz ist nicht von Erfolg gekr?nt, auch wenn PERISHING HUMANITY handwerklich achtbar in Szene treten. Das stupide Bolzen, das „The Monument Of Human Lies And Hypocrisy“ bestimmt, ist einfach zu wenig, um im internationalen DeathCore-Wettbewerb zu bestehen, zumal der Einstand der Ukrainer g?nzlich ohne frische Impulse oder reflektierte Kreativit?t daherkommt. Hier fehlt es noch an Reife und Erfahrung.

The variety of musical styles have been released some good and some very repetitive bands. This time Perishing Humanity presents an album with lots of energy, crushing drums and interesting guitars techniques, there is no denying the musical quality of these guys, furious songs and the style is very Americanized I could say, the main influence of this band is undoubtedly. The black dahlia murder. This production is very well done, quite acceptable for the younger generation, too repetitive for me, but has their moments of glory as well. Check it out by yourself!

Death metal that has a deathcore edge to it has been gaining quite a bit of popularity in the last few years. Rather than going for a full-on breakdown assault, bands of this type have taken influence from brutal death and technical death metal while still having just enough chugging and breakdowns to catch the core crowd. Ukraine’s Perishing Humanity is one of the newer groups to try their hand at the style, and their debut album The Monument of Human Lies and Hypocrisy throws a quick seven tracks at listeners. It doesn’t quite do enough to make each song distinguishable from the last, but this release is a great way for the band to establish themselves.
My promotional copy doesn’t say where the band mixed and produced The Monument of Human Lies and Hypocrisy, but whoever had a hand in doing so ensured that the sound was as polished as possible. This is the type of album that has been processed to give off a very modern feel, and this is a good thing considering the band’s genre of choice. Perishing Humanity throws everything they have at listeners in the 20 minutes that the songs run, moving between mid-tempo and fast paced arrangements without missing a step. The instrumentals fall into the death metal/deathcore category for most of the album, but there are a few moments where the guitarists and bassist show off their chops and perform some complex riffs and solos. I’d definitely like to see the band expand on their technical side, because so many deathcore style groups have a tendency to go for simplistic chugging and by utilizing more technicality Perishing Humanity becomes more distinguishable. There could also be some more variation between songs, as it’s hard to pick out particular moments in the six songs that stand out from the rest. 
Based on the vocal performance, it wouldn’t be obvious that these guys live in Ukraine. While some Ukranian/Russian metal acts have accents that bleed into their vocals (regardless of whether they sing or scream), Perishing Humanity’s screams and growls fit right in with American death metal/deathcore. There’s a nice balance between the highs and lows, as neither style overpowers the other and each one is given plenty of time to steal the spotlight. The track “Martyr” features a guest spot from Max Nabokov of Flying (another Ukranian metal act), and his screams add another layer of sound to the band’s arrangements. 
Perishing Humanity has the potential to gain considerable exposure outside of their native country, as they have the right sound. Their production values are impressive and it is clear that the instrumentalists have quite a bit of skill, but their songwriting needs a bit more work in order to make the individual songs distinguishable. Still, when taken as a whole The Monument of Human Lies and Hypocrisy is an enjoyable slab of heavy material that has just the right dose of breakdowns and I’ll be waiting to see if these guys can develop into a standout group.

Perishing Humanity is a new band from Ukraine, and this is their first full-length. Lately I heard lots of bands from Ukraine like this. I think there's some kind of explosion for this genre.
You can hear all instruments clearly, especially bass guitar tone is such as bone. Their genre is a mix of brutal death metal and hardcore. I didn't say only deathcore because some parts are really sounds like hardcore and some of them sounds like brutal death metal.
Their music is brutal, ruthless, syncopated and fast. I can recommend this album to brutal death metal and deathcore fans.

Goremented (Extreminal Webzine)

We have a new band of this so called brutal death metal, coming from the cold heart of Ukraine. Definitely, they play something I’ve heard million of times before, and you know? They must consider many things before they get lost in the sea of brutal bands fashion. I really don’t want to spoil the party saying they are lack of compositions and ideas, but I have to make clear this is all about originality and personality. They have tons of brutal and technique resources, and they use them very well, you know this fast guitar riffs, behind drums vertiginous and very dynamic. They occupy many tempo changes throughout the music and also they drive obvious references to names like Vital Remains, Nile and of course Dying Fetus. What I liked the most is the astonishing guitar technique which includes a very aggressive bass guitar which sounds all the time. I also detected some hard core moments like in track“Martyr” (featuring Max Nabokov from the also Ukrainian band FLYING) and crude “blast beats” ala MORBID ANGEL, like in “Overcome Myself”. At the end they are a quite good brutal death band, but I want to be incisive on the fact of creating something more original and ready to kick asses like in the past did this mentioned bands.

apocalyptic rites 6Ukraincy z Perishing Humanity graja cos, co mozna okreslic mianem Deathcore i w zasadzie na tym moglbym zakonczyc recenzje. Nie przepadam za takim graniem i raczej nic tego nie zmieni. Ta plyta pomimo pewnych ciekawych fragmentow pelnych agresji i nakurwu mnie nie przekonuje. Nie lubie takiego histerycznego darcia ryja przeplatanego (calkiem niezlym) growlem. Do tego mega szybkosci i lamane rytmy powoduja, ze mnie to meczy. Kiedys slyszalem taka kapele All Shall Perish ze Stanow i sadze, ze w takim wlasie stylu graja nasi wschodni sasiedzi. Pewnie fani gatunku znajda tu cos ciekawego, ale ja wymiekam.

rlyeh 11Po odpaleniu tej płyty ogarnął mnie jednocześnie entuzjazm i wkurw! Na czym ten myk polega? Ano mamy zajebistą muzą- połączenie Death Metalu i HC- 20- 25 lat temu mówiło się „DEATHCORE” i nie miało to nic wspólnego z jakimiś przytupajkami. Agresywna muza w ekstremalnym tempie, osadzona jednak na bazie szybkości, a nie ciężaru, czy brudu. Tak też jest i w tym przypadku. Jednak czwórka młodych Ukraińców zapomniała o żelaznej zasadzie!!! Żadnych triggerów! Tutaj te sztuczne centralki aż rażą, do tego brzmią jak klapsy na gołe dupsko. Kurwa, gdyby ta muza miała akustyczne bębny… Gdyby! Ale nie ma. Młody wiek członków zespołu i fakt, że jest to ich debiut, nie usprawiedliwia całej sprawy. I nad tym wypada już tylko ubolewać, bo czyż nie chcielibyśmy posłuchać sobie czegoś z pogranicza SEPTIC DEATH, czy SLASHING DEATH we współczesnym wykonaniu? Ku takiej muzyce zdąża PERISHING HUMANITY i tak naprawdę, jedyne czego tej płycie trzeba to wspomniane akustyczne bębny. Reszta- gitary, wokale, jest już porządnie ogarnięta. No cóż… czekamy na kolejny krok. A póki co, marne i z bólem postawione…
