Can't say I've ever heard of Severance, but it turns out that the band have been around since the late 80's. Suffering in Humanity is the sophomore release from the Texan death metal machine. The music is no-frills old school American death metal as it sounded around 1990. Think Rottrevore, Banished and Obituary. Add a chunky bass in the vein of Cannibal Corpse and we are almost there. There's nothing exceptional in what the American come up with and at first I found the music rather uninteresting.
The weak and hollow production was mostly to blame for this as it tends to mess up the music. After a few more listens the music actually starts to grow and become better and better, but the poor sound is very difficult to ignore. The songs are fairly detailed, but not in a way that it gets overwhelming. Suffering in Humanity is not bad, but it could have been a far better experience. The dry, dirty and to some degree hollow sound doesn't benefit the outcome thus the mediocre grading.
