About Inhuman

Inhuman burst onto the punk and hardcore scene in New York City in the summer of 1995. Michael Scondotto (vocals), Larry Neiroda (guitar), and Nick Angileri (drums) founded Inhuman and soon added Jay Nakleh (bass). It was a static time for the hardcore movement, and the Brooklyn-based band had trouble building momentum due to personnel changes and the inability to secure deals to release 7 singles. After earning spots on a handful of compilation albums and finally being able to issue some 7 singles, Inhuman generated positive feedback and favorable comparisons to the Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, and Negative Approach. By the end of 1999, Inhuman released two full-length albums. A cassette demo was released as a 7 single on Rick Ta Life's Back Ta Basics Records in 1996 and it remains a best-seller for the label. Too Damn Hype (now CHORD) Records' 1997 compilation album, East Coast Assault 2: The Second Coming, included Inhuman tracks. Neiroda and Nakleh soon quit the band and were replaced by occasional roadies Walter Cardenas and Joe Porfido, respectively. Porfido was a temporary member who was replaced by Justin Rowand. Inhuman were featured on yet another compilation, Victory Records' Only the Strong, and played shows with Shutdown, All Out War, Kill Your Idols, Brutal Truth, Indecision, and Hatebreed. Inhuman quickly became respected peers of revered N.Y.C. punk and hardcore bands like Madball, Sick of It All, and Vision of Disorder. Inhuman's full-length debut album, Evolver, was issued in August of 1997 on Eyeball Records and earned critical acclaim in the punk and hardcore press. That same month, Rowand left and Porfido returned to the fold. Angileri quit in November of 1998 and was replaced by Joseph Fogarty in February of 1999. By autumn of 1999, Inhuman's lineup included Scondotto, Cardenas, Fogarty, and bassist Joseph James. Inhuman's second album, Rebellion, was issued by Exit Records in October of 1999. ~ Bret Adams
