A ways back, The Human Trials asked us to put out their new album. We all agreed that the sounds they are making on this record are impossibly heavy for just 2 hominids. Behold!!
Mutated from the chaos cloud that engulfed the early 2020’s, John Gaetano and Tim Chambers locked themselves away within their Bridgeport, Chicago panic-room audio-sensory laboratory.
Armed with John’s ratted-out Rickenbacker bass and Tim’s sniper-like syncopated drum attack, The Human Trials emerged as a dynamic power duo birthed and molded by the constant duality of our species. Their broad atmospheric range of sonic vibrant highs and melancholy melodic lows reminds us to stop and smell the roses … before lighting them on fire.
