Formed in 2000, Human Decline is an aggro-tech assault machine hailing from Brooklyn NY. After the demise of the band Enemy Within, Drummer Richie Latoni and guitarist John Cosenza sought to create a technical metal outfit with a NYHC influence. Rounding out the lineup was bassist Danny Cymbal, guitarist Tommy Houtas, and vocalist Anthony Tantuccio. They promptly released two demos showcasing their intense, unrelenting power and precision. Human Decline quickly began getting attention around the local NY hardcore scene, sharing the stage in and around the north east with well known acts such as: Napalm Death, Soilent Green, Sepultura, SuperJoint Ritual, Candiria, Full Blown Chaos, A Life Once Lost, and the Red Chord.
A vocalist change in 2003 soon led to the release of the HDEP. 2004 saw the departure of Houtas and the addition of guitarist Vincent Castiglia, prompting a slew of live shows, and intense writing. In 2005 HD went into the studio to record the EP 'Remedy for The Living'. Unfortunately the lengthy recording hiatus proved detrimental to the band. Shortly after the release of 'Remedy', members Cymbal and Castiglia decided to part ways with HD. Guitarist Fabrizio Matrascia and bassist Scott Brown would join the band in 2006, and HD would soon record the unreleased 2008 demo. Browns departure from the band in late 2008 would lead to the addition of bassist Steve Perlmutter (Vext, A Great Day To Die).
Currently on hiatus from live performances, the band is set to Re-release the 05' Remedy For The Living EP, via Lost Apparitions Records.
