Last updated: 07/28/2004 11:23:57 PM

Formed: 1998
From: Greece
Last Known Status: Active

Homo Iratus was formed by Argyris (drums), Alex (guitars, vocals), and Kostas (guitars) in 1998, the year in which they recorded their first demo "Absence of Progress." Shortly thereafter, Jim joined the band as the lead vocalist and in 1999 they recorded the song "False Criteria," which was used on a compilation CD "Vibes From Below" by Psyclone Sinphonies. Two more lineup changes would take place still: In November of 1999, Aggelos (Angel) joined the band at bass, and later in April 2000, Kostas left the band for personal reasons.

The band entered the studio to record their first full-length album, "Human Consumes Human" in mid-April of 2000. The album marks a progression from the band's demo days, combining their blasting and guttural death volcals with churning machine-like groove and intense percussion, creating their own brand of deathcore.

The band was discovered and signed by Arctic Music Group while opening for Malevolent Creation in in Greece in early 2001 and have since played with many others such as Napalm Death, Children of Bodom, Hateplow and many others.
