Austrian metal troupe Perishing Mankind play a hybrid style of modern melodic death metal with a few twists on the 10-track WONDERLAND. From the Damageplan-esque "Lost Within" and the COC-groove heavy jam on "Haunted" to the double-bass drum driven In Flames-influenced title cut, there's a slew of styles colliding within the span of each track emitting strange vibes throughout. Tracks like "Work it Out" takes a wrong turn with a emo-tinged metal ballad while the atmosphere created on "False God" seems a bit undercooked. Perisihing Mankind demonstrates the propensity to crank out durable material but would benefit greatly to find a suitable identity or at the very least bring a stronger blend of their influences to the table next time.
