Human is a death metal band from Christchurch, New Zealand. It was originally formed on 8 March 1992 by brothers Paul and Scott Harrison (on drums and guitars respectively), and vocalist / guitarist Nathan Ballard, with bassist Vaughn Richardson fleshing out the line up in May that same year.
The band entered Nga Matuaka Studios in May and recorded a 3 track demo cassette titled "Organ Splatters" which was distributed freely throughout the heavy metal underground / tape swapping networks around at the time. The band later appeared on a September 1992 addition of New Zealand's 60 Minutes programme on the Television 3 network as part of a documentary that focused on suicide and depression, and the connection to heavy metal music.
The band went on to tour and record many times over in the years to follow, and despite some line up changes, the band continues today.
Humans are the only living members of the genus Homo. Human may also refer to:
Human is the fourth studio album by American Death metal band Death, released on October 22, 1991 by Relativity Records. The album marked the beginning of a major stylistic change for Death, being more technically complex and progressive than the band's previous efforts. The lyrics are more introspective when compared to the gore-based lyrics of Scream Bloody Gore and Leprosy or the social commentary on Spiritual Healing. This new style would continue to evolve on all following Death albums. This is the only album to feature guitarist Paul Masvidal, drummer Sean Reinert and the first to feature bassist Steve DiGiorgio.
Bass player Steve DiGiorgio left after the recording of this album (though he would later return to record Individual Thought Patterns). He was replaced by Skott Carino, who toured with the band in 1991 and 1992. Carino also recorded the first half of bass on "Cosmic Sea", and the rest of the song (including the bass solo) was recorded by DiGiorgio. The album also features guitarist Paul Masvidal and drummer Sean Reinert, both of the bands Æon Spoke and fellow technical death metal pioneers Cynic.
In 2011, Relapse Records and Perseverance Holdings Ltd. re-issued the album to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the original release. This edition was remixed by Jim Morris of Morrisound Recording Studios, includes bonus tracks, and was authorized by Schuldiner intellectual property lawyer Eric Greif. Greif stated that it was necessary to remix the album since "unbelievably Sony lost the original tape of the album mixes and any attempt to remaster from a CD would be a ripoff".
Human is a studio album released by Rod Stewart on 12 March 2001 (see 2001 in music). It was Stewart's nineteenth studio album and first, and only release, on Atlantic Records (Atlantic 7567-83411-2), a sister label to his previous label Warner Bros. Records.
It produced the singles "Run Back Into Your Arms", "I Can't Deny It", and "Don't Come Around Here". "I Can't Deny It" became a moderate hit and the album was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry.
Modern humans ( Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens) are the only extant members of Hominina clade (or human clade), a branch of the taxonomical tribe Hominini belonging to the family of great apes. They are characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion; manual dexterity and increased tool use, compared to other animals; and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies.
Early hominins—particularly the australopithecines, whose brains and anatomy are in many ways more similar to ancestral non-human apes—are less often referred to as "human" than hominins of the genus Homo. Several of these hominins used fire, occupied much of Eurasia, and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 200,000 years ago. They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago. In several waves of migration, anatomically modern humans ventured out of Africa and populated most of the world.
The spread of humans and their large and increasing population has had a profound impact on large areas of the environment and millions of native species worldwide. Advantages that explain this evolutionary success include a relatively larger brain with a particularly well-developed neocortex, prefrontal cortex and temporal lobes, which enable high levels of abstract reasoning, language, problem solving, sociality, and culture through social learning. Humans use tools to a much higher degree than any other animal, are the only extant species known to build fires and cook their food, and are the only extant species to clothe themselves and create and use numerous other technologies and arts.
Humans are uniquely adept at utilizing systems of symbolic communication (such as language and art) for self-expression and the exchange of ideas, and for organizing themselves into purposeful groups. Humans create complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families and kinship networks to political states. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of human society. Curiosity and the human desire to understand and influence the environment and to explain and manipulate phenomena (or events) has provided the foundation for developing science, philosophy, mythology, religion, anthropology, and numerous other fields of knowledge.
Though most of human existence has been sustained by hunting and gathering in band societies, increasing numbers of human societies began to practice sedentary agriculture approximately some 10,000 years ago, domesticating plants and animals, thus allowing for the growth of civilization. These human societies subsequently expanded in size, establishing various forms of government, religion, and culture around the world, unifying people within regions to form states and empires. The rapid advancement of scientific and medical understanding in the 19th and 20th centuries led to the development of fuel-driven technologies and increased lifespans, causing the human population to rise exponentially. By February 2016, the United States Census Bureau had estimated that the global human population had exceeded 7.3 billion.

Human is a 1995 instrumental album released by British musician Gary Numan and music producer Michael R. Smith. It consists of 36 tracks from the 75 that had been written, but were largely unused, for the low-budget 1991 horror/science-fiction movie The Unborn. Numan recorded the music when he was signed with IRS Records, but that label refused to release it (ironically, in 1988, IRS asked Numan to record an instrumental album to be titled No Speak). In his autobiography, Numan described how the Unborn project came about:
Numan and Smith's music for The Unborn, written in early 1991, was later released as the album Human in 1995, through Numan's label Numa Records (it was the last commercially available release from Numa; Numan subsequently signed with Eagle Records in 1997).
Numan has described Human as "an hour-long collection of musical ideas, each with a specific mood or atmosphere in mind, not a conventional instrumental album."
Parts of some of the tracks have subsequently been used in later work by Numan. "A Little Lost Soul" is a semi-instrumental version of the Outland track "Soul Protection"; "Embryo" became the Sacrifice track "The Seed of a Lie"; "Big Alien" and "Mother" are instrumental versions of the Outland track "Heart"; "Tidal Wave" became the Outland track "From Russia Infected"; and "Needles" became the Sacrifice track "Pray".
Human is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Brandy, first released in France in December 2008 and by March 2009 in most international music markets. Distributed by Koch Records and Sony Music, the album marked Norwood's debut on the Epic Records label, following her split with Atlantic Records in 2005, and her reunion with long-time contributor and mentor Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, who wrote and executive produced most of the album with his songwriting collective.
Generally well received by critics, Human debuted at number fifteen on the US Billboard 200 with opening week sales of 73,000 copies, becoming Brandy's lowest-charting debut since her first album fourteen years prior. With a domestic sales total of 214,000 copies, it widely failed to revive the success of its predecessors. While leading single " Right Here (Departed)" scored Norwood her biggest chart success since 2002's " Full Moon," the album failed to impact elsewhere, resulting in lackluster sales in general and the release of just one other single, " Long Distance."
In mid-2009 during the recording sessions for Norwood's second album with Epic Records, Brandy ended her management contract with Roc Nation. This was followed by the termination of her contract with Epic, after singer-songwriter Amanda Ghost was appointed the new president of the label. Disappointed by its performance, Norwood later expressed her dislike of the album itself.
