HUMAN Amputation Of A Nation, NZ Tour

HUMAN Amputation Of A Nation, New Zealand Tour March 2006

HUMAN (l to r) Scott Spatcher-Harrison (Guitars / Vocals) Vaughn Richardson (Bass / Vocals) Kezz Brewster (Guitar / Vocals) Paul Harrison (Drums)


Born in a one room bedsit in Central City Christchurch way back in 1992, the band HUMAN can now boldly lay claim to being New Zealand's longest serving hardcore death metal band. March 2006 marks the group's 14th anniversary together, with a 6 date death metal rampage through our great nation, sure to be seen as one of THE best metal tours for this year!

Long renowned throughout the New Zealand underground music scene as the maddest and most chaotic act around, the members of HUMAN have always maintained that their personas onstage and offstage are genuine and completely REAL. They have a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour that, when paired with their blistering two-minute metallic barrages (also known as 'songs'), can win over any audience. With songs like 'Wave Goodbye To Both your Hands' and 'Decomposing Rectum Muscle' they have been compared to grindcore legends like Napalm Death by some, and to comedic legends like Monty Python by others. The band remains baffled in regards to comparison making.

HUMAN's latest studio album "Blood Bucket" (Currently their 10th official release) is enjoying strong sales locally and overseas, while their over-the-top music videos have found favourable spots on C4 music television.

"We have no illusions in this band," says vocalist / guitarist Scott Spatcher-Harrison. "We know (musically speaking) what we're capable of, and really, we're just out there being ourselves. We don't care about anything else apart from having fun and entertaining our audience - whoever and wherever they are."
