LAST DAYS OF HUMANITY -

Info

Plucked from the decomposing bowels of the Netherlands in 1989, LAST DAYS OF HUMANITY are old school goregrind at its most pure. Splitting in 2006 after nearly two decades of skull-shattering, pitchshifted filth, this cult four-piece are back to bury OBSCENE EXTREME 2011 beneath a flood of pus and spinal fluid.


Heavily influenced by and influential to the masters of noisegrind, Last Days of Humanity represent the genre at its most brutal. Get too close to the speakers and you WILL shit yourself.

Bio

Erwin de Wit and Hans Smits often came together in Soos Plock, where they socialised and saw bands like Blood, Agathocles, Dreft and other bands who were into grindcore/noisecore at that time. It also was the heyday of some other underground bands such as Fear of God, Napalm Death, Sore Throat, Anal Cunt, 7 Minutes of Nausea. These bands inspired them to go and start their own grind/noise band.


Erwin was in a grindcore band called Fatal Error previous to his entry into Last Days of Humanity. When Erwin organised a gig with Drudge, Agathocles and some other bands on December 30, 1989 in Plock, he saw the opportunity to add their own noise project to the bill, and Last Days of Humanity was born.


Last Days of Humanity at this time consisted of only two vocalists (Erwin and Hans). Their music was originally crafted by using by two screaming voices that were deformed by a pitch shifter intended for guitar. In 1990, a more traditional band setup was formed when the first real gig of Last Days of Humanity was planned. They were scheduled to play on October 6, 1990 together with Fatal Error at Soos Plock.


In 1993, the band went into the studio to record their second demo. In 1996, they got their first record deal. Afterwards, they booked 2 studio days to record their first album. After one day recording they only recorded approximately 12 minutes of music. Their label then informed the band that they had to come up with 18 additional minutes of new material in 24 hours, or the album would not be released. After this dispute, they quickly jumped ship to Bones Brigade. The band split up in 2006.


It has been announced by Bones Brigade and confirmed by the band themselves, that Last Days of Humanity have officially reformed. With a stint on Bloodshed Fest 2010 at the Dynamo club in Eindhoven, Netherlands, Maryland Death Fest 2011 at Sonar in Baltimore, and a UK tour to take place in December. Their new, confimed line up is Guitar: William Van De Ven, Bass: Erwin de Wit, Vocals: Marc Palmen, Drums: "Joep" (from their official YouTube and MySpace pages).
