Human (band)

Human is a death metal band from Christchurch, New Zealand. It was originally formed on 8 March 1992 by brothers Paul and Scott Harrison (on drums and guitars respectively), and vocalist / guitarist Nathan Ballard, with bassist Vaughn Richardson fleshing out the line up in May that same year.

The band entered Nga Matuaka Studios in May and recorded a 3 track demo cassette titled "Organ Splatters" which was distributed freely throughout the heavy metal underground / tape swapping networks around at the time. The band later appeared on a September 1992 addition of New Zealand's 60 Minutes programme on the Television 3 network as part of a documentary that focused on suicide and depression, and the connection to heavy metal music.

The band went on to tour and record many times over in the years to follow, and despite some line up changes, the band continues today. [1]
