All good things must come to an end? Or must they?
When people think of Logan Mader, they remember flying dreads, a flying V and deadly volume, dealing with likes of MACHINE HEAD and SOULFLY. Hard to believe but it’s been 12 years since Logan set foot onstage.
Now a gold record music producer/ mixer (Five Finger Death Punch, Gojira, Periphery, etc.), Mader wrote off the performing part of his life and settled behind the scenes. Still, something within him stirred.
Former Roadrunner chief, now Nuclear Blast Entertainment head, Monte Conner sent newcomer and multi-instrumentalist Lauren Hart to Logan Mader for a production deal. A creative spark between the two forged the nexus of Once Human as Hart moved from guitars to vocals, unsheathing a throat-scarring level of vocal brutality that completely contradicts her soft appearance. Unexpectedly, the result brought Mader back to creative life as both artist and performer.
“The Creative chemistry was so on fire and the music really spoke to me. In all of my years producing, I’ve never been so attached and excited about a developing project,” Logan continues,
“It’s a mix of brutal metal and melodic epic, with cinematic textures. It’s unique and really has its own identity.”
Logan is not closing his studio doors for producing however. “I can do it all,” he said.
The rhythm section of ONCE HUMAN consists of Damian Rainauld on bass, and Ralph Alexander on drums. Both Newcomers and both insanely talented.
Once Human has inked a worldwide deal with earMUSIC who will be unveiling their debut album “The Life I Remember” on September 4th, 2015. Witness the sound of a new steel being forged.
Once Human has arrived.
