Mahumodo was an experimental hardcore/post-hardcore band from the UK formed by Mehdi Safa in 1997. They recorded four EPs: 'Shels', 'Bythewaters', 'Aprils' and '*Waves', all released on their own label, Shelsmusic. The band received critical praise for both their live shows and EPs, with comparisons to American favourites Deftones, Will Haven and Tool.[citation needed]

The band split in 2003 when founding member Mehdi Safa, started a new project *shels with Mahumodo drummer Tom Harriman.

Post Mahumodo projects[edit]

In 2003, Mehdi Safa, singer-songwriter of Mahumodo and drummer Tom Harriman started a new Project called *shels. They have since released two EPs and two albums: Wingsfortheirsmiles, Laurentian's Atoll, Sea Of The Dying Dhow and Plains of the Purple Buffalo respectively, which features members of the now defunct bands Eden Maine and Fireapple Red when touring.

Richard Chapple and Jonny Renshaw went on to form Devil Sold His Soul with vocalist Ed Gibbs. The band has released one EP (Darkness Prevails) and three albums (A Fragile Hope, Blessed & Cursed, and Empire of Light). Drummer Tom Harriman was first in Devil Sold His Soul, but left after their EP to join *shels.
