Human Waste is Suffocation's debut EP released by Relapse Records. This was also the first CD ever to be released by Relapse. "Infecting The Crypts", "Mass Obliteration", and "Jesus Wept" were re-recorded on the following album, Effigy of the Forgotten. "Synthetically Revived" was also re-recorded on Pierced from Within and "Catatonia" was re-recorded for the Despise the Sun EP. The only track that has not been re-recorded is the title track, which was originally recorded for the demo Reincremated.
It was re-released in 2005 with two bonus tracks taken from the 1990 demo Reincremated. Tracks 7 and 8 on the re-release are "Involuntary Slaughter" and "Reincremation".
