Three months after our recent Top 10 Tracks Special, we’re back with a solid hit from British metalcore pack HUMAN HELL! The band are releasing their new single ‘Life Deprived’ on DSP’s on the 16th July 2021, and today we’re stoked to give you its first listen below!
This single is the second from the bands upcoming EP and the band continue to showcase a much darker sound than anything they have previously written. ‘Life Deprived’ is complimented by a macabre, bleak visualiser.
Human Hell have upcoming shows with Monasteries, Gassed Up, RXPTRS, From Sorrow To Serenity and Immerse, with plenty more being booked for the remainder of 2021. The upcoming EP focusses on occult and dark subject matter.
Life Deprived is a much heavier offering since previous single Amalantrah, it’s a product of ache. It is real life. It’s the result of a complete lack of connection to the world. We are all alone amongst each other.

The accompanying video is made of footage from public archives, designed almost like a psychological operation, much like disturbing aversion therapy scenes in clockwork orange, this should come with a slight disclaimer.
Vocals and drums were recorded by Michael Kew at rogue studios Wembley. Guitars were recorded and mix and mastered by Charlie Wilson at monolith studios Tottenham.
Commenting on the writing the song, Tom said: “Usually I have an idea I let stew for a few days and link up with more and have a pretty solid idea before I track demos. But with Life Deprived, I just sat down on a day being frustrated as fuck with lockdown and just wrote it at the computer from scratch, The idea was to make it as nasty as possible. When we demoed vocals me and Steven were absolutely floored by Evan’s last line “we’re all begging to be euthanised“ and Life Deprived just fit as a title.” and you hear that as well, that it was all rolled out on the fly and not overthought, by the way it flowed.
“The only guarantee in life is death. Absolute finality. Void in rest. Terra firma, Firmly in terror. An error. Mother Earth Died in childbirth. Of our new era”
