Artist Biography "Once Human" is an American melodic death metal band from LosAngeles, California, founded in 2014 by music producer and former Soulfly/Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader. In 2014, after Mader had spent more than a decade away from the stage, Monte Conner of Nuclear Blast sent Australian musician Lauren Hart to Mader for a production deal. Once they met, Hart switched from guitars to vocals. Damian Rainauld then joined on bass with Ralph Alexander stepping in on percussion. Mader chose not to recruit well known musicians, as he wanted his band to be neither a supergroup nor a side project for each of its members.
Jeremy Borjon of Revolver magazine stated that the band portrays "an impeccably produced, ruthless and mature sound in the vein of Arch Enemy and DevilDriver" with Hart bringing "the metal with clear and compelling screaming fleshed out by a groovy and thunderous rhythm section".
