Check out my pick of the week for the first week of May 2018, Once Human’s “Dark Matter.” Once Human is an American melodic death metal band from Los Angeles, California founded in 2014 by music producer and former Machine Head/Soulfly guitarist Logan Mader.
On September 4, 2015, the band released its debut album “The Life I Remember” through earMUSIC. The follow-up, “Evolution” was released February 17, 2017 and officially put Once Human on the map. Fronting the band is Lauren Hart, another in a short line of female death metal vocalists, similar in style to Alissa White-Gluz. Hart’s talents have quickly been recognized, as she was featured on symphonic metallers Kamelot’s new album, “The Shadow Theory” and has also joined the band as a guest vocalist on its current “Shadow Tour.”
Check out “Dark Matter” below and perhaps a new Once Human will get underway once Lauren returns from her stint with Kamelot:
