Once Human Drop 'Deadlock' Single Featuring Robb Flynn
Ferocious LA five-piece, ONCE HUMAN have unveiled a taste of brand new music with new single, Deadlock, taken from their forthcoming album, Scar Weaver, set for release in February 2022 via earMUSIC. Deadlock features a guest appearance from Machine Head frontman, Robb Flynn, friend and former bandmate of ONCE HUMAN guitarist, Logan Mader.
Logan’s history with Machine Head is well documented, not least in recent times when he toured the globe with Robb for the Bay Area band’s Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour. As a result, this new collaboration needs no explanation, but front woman Lauren Hart remains thrilled by the whole experience, telling us;
“It was absolutely amazing, are you kidding? I didn’t believe it was happening until he sent something back and I heard his voice on our song. I was like, ‘Holy crap! This is real!’ He came back with a new chorus and it was so much better than mine, so my chorus was gone! [Laughs] But then performing with him in the video, that was insane. The energy he brings on stage, he brings in person too. It was a great experience and his energy is so powerful. The video came out amazing!”

Pieced together over the last two years, ONCE HUMAN’s upcoming album, Scar Weaver represents a massive step forward for the band. Blessed (or perhaps cursed) with plenty of extra time during the last year’s lockdown situation, the band have been able to refine and redefine their sound, inspired by a sudden creative surge from latest recruit, second guitarist Max Karon. The result is an gloriously idiosyncratic modern metal record, with Lauren Hart’s career-best vocal performance just one of its dazzling revelations. With ONCE HUMAN’s most intense and explosive music to work with, the singer has pushed herself to new heights, showcasing a vastly expanded vocal range in the process.
