Human Waste is Suffocation's debut EP released by Relapse Records. This was also the first CD ever to be released by Relapse[citation needed]. "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".
