ALMØST HUMAN IS A SWISS METAL BAND, BUT IT’S ALSO A UNIVERSE. AN ORCHESTRATION OF THE LIFE AND DEATH’S CYCLE WHICH FINDS AN ECHO EVEN IN ITS OWN BIOGRAPHY
Associating the peculiar technique of extreme metal with the energy of rock music, Almøst Human keeps focus on melody and emotion at large.
Initially raised in the 90’s by Olivier Perdrizat (guitar) & Rosario Fullone (drums), Almøst Human splitted a few years later before to born again – on the ashes of the previous band – in 2008 when Jan Peyer joined his “new” co-conspirators. Then officially reactivated, Almøst Human, recruited two new members, Chris Matthey (guitar) and Ben Plüss (vocals) with the faim to find its propre musical way.
So their music is constantly evolving between rage and introspection, peace and violence, breaking the “clichés” of the metal cultures to ask themselves about the nature of the human being next to the animal reign.
Aﬅer debut and self-produced EP "Ø", Almøst Human played inside and outside the swiss borders and was part of the Silence festival in Nepal next to major bands such as Textures. Then they worked with with the team of the "120 secondes" TV comedy show for the national tv, writing and recording some tunes of a parody band called "Black Lion Genocide" with which one they played @ Paléo Festival in 2015.
About one year and a half later and the arrival of the new guitarist Gilles Bonzon (Abstract Reason, Buried Skies) - Chris Matthey keeping the hand of the music production of the band - Almøst Human began to record its first full-length album "XS2XTC", to be released during winter 2018/2019.
After several years of collaboration, Jan Peyer and Almøst Human decided to continue their musical careers separately, so, the Almøst Human family proudly announces the birth of a new Humanimal, Sara Borel, bass player. She came out of her incubator cocoon a 14th of June in some green fields in the Eiger's shadow. This new graft member is reinforcing our organism & ability to spread happiness to all pairs of ears that we'll meet on our way.
