We As Human EP [edit]
by We As Human | Genre: Hard Rock/Metal | Release Date: October 04, 2011
 

The We As Human EP opens with "Sever," a riff-heavy rocker about God exposing the sin in our lives, and us willfully cutting that sin out of our lives. The single, "Dead Man," closes the EP on a similar note, declaring that we can only be alive after God removes the sin (the "dead man") from us.

Of the two songs in between, "Living Lies" and "Double Life," the latter is easily the stronger of the tracks. The song is from God's point of view, to someone harboring a secret sin or vice, and shows it with lyrics like "Don't pretend that it never happened, I was there and a I know what you did." "Living Lies" is the weakest track on the album, but is still infinitely better than anything from their first couple releases.

The main trouble with this EP is, with the style of music We As Human plays, it is near impossible to be creative. Certainly, this EP is nothing groundbreaking. On the other hand, if you're looking for originality in music, your ship sailed about 40 years ago. We As Human does what they do well, without having a sound that can be pinpointed on any one particular influence.

This Album Hits Hard | Posted March 04, 2014
Justin Cordel, lead singer of We As Human, has spoken of the influences of this record from his nephew's death from cancer (Sever -- "cancer in my bones / you won't let me go") to the freedom one has from sin once they’re in Christ (Dead Man -- "Now that your not holding me down / This is where I say goodbye / And put the last bullet between your eyes"), giving listeners an intimacy with this initial effort which is unique in the industry.
On the cornerstone of Cordel’s strong vocal range and gutsy lyrical style, this quintet is rounded out by spectacularly talented artists at every point: Adam Osborn on drums; Jake Jones and Justin Foreshaw on guitar; and Dave Draggoo on the bass.
There’s no question, this album is definitely worth the money.
Aside from their artistry, these guys are solid-gold human beings. There’s no question that you’ll see more of them in the years to come.
