Only Inhuman is the second studio album by Swedish melodic death metal band Sonic Syndicate. Released May 18, 2007 in Europe and on May 22, 2007 in North America. It's also the first album the band released through their new label, Nuclear Blast as well as the first to feature vocalist Roland Johansson and drummer John Bengtsson as full-time members.
The album was produced by Jonas Kjellgren, one of the guitar players of the Swedish melodic death metal band Scar Symmetry. A limited edition of the album features a bonus track, entitled "Freelancer", while the Japanese edition contains "My Soul In #000000". The album ranked number 22 on the Swedish charts after one week of sales.
Only Inhuman was re-released in North America on May 6, 2008. The re-release, dubbed "Only Inhuman Tour Edition" includes a bonus DVD containing the videos for the songs "Denied" and "Enclave" as well as a photography section and a live performance of the band, filmed in Cologne, Germany on June 21, 2007.
Only Inhuman is sometimes thought to be the band's debut album since their actual debut album, Eden Fire, includes only rerecorded demo songs from their previous released demos while the band still was called Fallen Angels. (Except the first three songs "Jailbreak", "Enhance My Nightmare" and "History Repeats Itself".)
The tour edition features the original Only Inhuman album (with Limited Edit bonus track "Freelancer") and a DVD with live performance of the band in Cologne, Germany(from. WDRRockpalast). There was also a reissue of the Tour Edition which had different artwork but did not include the live DVD. The live-DVD can also rarely be bought separate from the album. The separated DVD version has the same cover as the Tour Edition, only retitled to Live Inhuman (which is the original name of the tour-DVD). The "Live Inhuman" version is a rare Nuclear Blast exclusive release.
