Biography

Humanoid is the name of at least 5 artists:

1) Humanoid is the name of a progressive instrumental band showcasing Mathieu Marcotte, guitarist of Augury.

Originating from Abitibi, in the north of Quebec, Canada, Mathieu Marcotte started playing guitar in 1990 at the age of 14. His growing passion for both metal and classical music inspired him to compose with electrical and classical guitars at the same time. After putting together a few compositions, he decided, accompanied by local musicians, to form the death metal band Spasme, who during their 7 years of existence, were know by touring throughout Quebec. Two recordings were produced by the band, that is to say the demo “Traumatism” (Indie, 1995) and the album “Deep Inside” (Neoblast rec, 1999 / Galy rec, 2001).

2001 marked the beginning of a new era as Mathieu chose to quit the formation “Spasme” to concentrate on the elaboration of a new group. It is with the collaboration of experimented and talented musicians from the Quebec metal scene that he founded Augury in 2002, an extreme/ progressive/ metal band. Weaving a musical style proper to themselves, “Augury” is noticed internationally with the release of “Concealed” (Galy Records, 2004), album which was worthy of a nomination at the MIMI’S gala in Montreal and an excellent reception from critics, medias and fans of metal music throughout the world. Two Canadian tours took place thereafter with “Quo Vadis” and “Unexpect”, respectively in 2005 and 2006. During this intense period where the band played many shows, they took the time to record a “promo-ep” consisting of two new tracks and release the European version of “Concealed” on Adipocère Records.

    There is some confusion here between Humanoid and Stakker Humanoid. The latter are acid house/electronic/techno pioneers from the UK. Some of the albums and tracks - listed in Top Tracks and Top Albums above - are erroneously credited to Humanoid (e.g. Stakker Humanoid, Humanoid Sessions, Global Humanoid, Your Body Robotic). Humanoid had nothing to do with these albums...they are creations of Stakker Humanoid, a completely different entity. Nothing against Humanoid (I am not familiar with his work, but since I'm here I might check out his stuff) but, yeah, a lot of the tunes credited to him are in fact creations of Stakker Humanoid.

    Lulz at flame wars. Also, people who listen to techno have a more sophisticated musical pallet and anything that the ignorant metalheads say makes me lulz. Flame on!
