The Kobra and the Lotus
Once Human
Once Human
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 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 deal with earMUSIC, a newly formed distribution partnership through eOne Music in North America, who will be unveiling their debut album in Fall 2015. Witness the sound of a new steel being forged. Once Human has arrived.
Varkan was formed in 2014 by singer/bassist Alec Damiano and drummer Michael Rodriguez.

Their debut show, held on November 1, 2014 at the Nile Underground in Mesa, Arizona, sold out and was met with an incredible crowd response.

Mere months after their debut, they opened for crossover thrash legends Dirty Rotten Imbeciles (D.R.I.) and the Queen of Metal, Doro Pesch. They have also opened for national and international touring bands like Holy Grail, Tormenter, and Unleash The Archers.
