Initially formed in the ’90s by Olivier Perdrizat (guitar) & Rosario Fullone (drums), Almøst Human split a few years later before being born again – on the ashes of the previous band – in 2008 when Jan Peyer joined his “new” co-conspirators.

Then officially reactivated, Almøst Human, recruited two new members, Chris Matthey (guitar) and Ben Plüss (vocals) with the aim to find its proper musical way. So their music is constantly evolving between rage and introspection, peace and violence, breaking the “clichés” of the metal cultures to ask themselves about the nature of the human being next to the animal reign.
Aſter their debut and self-produced EP “Ø”, Almøst Human played inside and outside the Swiss borders and was part of the Silence festival in Nepal next to major bands such as Textures. Then they worked with the team of the “120 seconds” TV comedy show for national TV, writing and recording some tunes of a parody band called “Black Lion Genocide” with which they played @ Paléo Festival in 2015.

About one year and a half later and with the arrival of the new guitarist Gilles Bonzon (Abstract Reason, Buried Skies) – and with Chris Matthey keeping the hand of the music production of the band – Almøst Human began to record its first full-length album “XS2XTC”, to be released during winter 2018/2019.
