Inhumate - Biography

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.


In September 1990 Fred (bass player) was moving to a city in the North East of France called Strasbourg. Arriving there he wanted to put up a death metal band so he searched and found a vocalist : Olivier. This one called a friend of him David (guitar) and they fast found a drummer called Stephane. INHUMATE was born. This line up stayed stable for about one year, after that Stephane and Olivier left the band and were replaced by Valentin and Sebastien. Those new members were totally dedicated to the grind core scene, INHUMATE became to play faster and from death metal jumped into the death grind scene. With this line up INHUMATE recorded in 1993 its first demo "Abstract Suffering" (4 tracks). In 1994 drummer and vocalist left the band again and in October 1994 INHUMATE had its definitive and ultimate line up with the arrival of Christophe on vocals and Yannick on drums.
