This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
|Autumn 1989, Erwin de Wit and Hans Smits often came together in Soos Plock, where you could hang out, drink a lot of beer, and see some cool bands, like Blood, Agathocles, and Dreft, bands who were into the most filthy grind/noise that was around in that time. It also was the time of some great other underground bands like Fear of God, Napalm Death, Sore Throat, Anal Cunt, and 7 Minutes of Nasea. Those bands inspired us to go and make our own mind-blowing grindnoise. Erwin already played in a grindcore band called Fatal Error. When Erwin organized a gig with Drudge, Agathocles and some other bands December the 30, 1989 in Plock he saw the opportunity to add their own noise project to the bill; Last Days of Humanity was born. Last days of Humanity at this time consisted of only two singers (Erwin and Hans). The "music" was made by two screaming voices that were deformed by a guitar pitch shifter.
In 1990 a real band was formed - the musical influences were Anal Cunt, fast short chaotic songs. The first real gig of Last days of Humanity was on October 6th, 1990 together with Fatal Error in Soos Plock. Shortly after, Hans came across a Digitech Whammy FX pedal that could bring down the vocals with one or two octaves.
In 1993, the band went into the studio to record their second demo, a few weeks before we met a guy who was playing in a blues band and also had a small studio. When the band started the recording his eyes almost popped out of his skull and his jaw fell wide open, he couldn't believe what was happening - such sheer sonic mayhem, but after a couple cases of beer he calmed down and they finished their recording.
Somewhere in 1996, Last Days of Humanity got their first record deal and booked two studio days to record their debut album. On the first day, Erwin forgot to take his bass guitar to the studio, but luckily he didn't forget his beer. After one day of recording they only got about 12 minutes of music, which was way too short for a full length CD, so the band had to come up with about 18 minutes of new material in less than 24 hours! The label that originally would release the album failed to keep its promises and kept the band on a lease with beautiful words, then came Nicolas of Bones Brigade. Nicolas and Hans were already friends for a long time, and knew him from the time that he was working for Osmose Productions. They made a deal with him and he released the first album shortly after.
Summer 2006, a couple of old Last Days of Humanity members (Erwin de Wit, Hans and Bart) made a plan to release a double album called Rest in Gore with all the old stuff like demos, EP's, and other things that nowadays are very hard to get. Also there still were lots of unreleased tracks and tracks that where re-recorded. Most of the original recording were lost over the years, so they had to use the normal demos and EP's. They all were cleaned up and remastered in a studio, in which Bones Brigade was very helpful with the distribution.
