They say Long Island, NY is the breeding ground for some of the best Death Metal, Industrial Metal, and Groove Metal - it hasn't disappointed yet. Plague of Humanity is an American Industrial Metal band with a sound that has been described as a mixture of everything Long Island NY has claimed.
Formed in 2012, Plague of Humanity recorded a four song sampler at LI's Full Force Studios. Tracks from this recording have been showing up on the "Most Played" and "Most Requested" lists on a few Metal Websites and have received play at some of the Long Island Clubs and Bars.
Drummer Phil Peterson, Bassist Rich Streng, and guitarist Larry Forman lay down the heavy groundwork for vocalist/programmer Brian Lynch to weave tales of love, hate, pain, and so much more. This creates a sound that is both ugly and beautiful at the same time. Listening to Plague of Humanity is a heart pounding ride, so hold on...
Brian Lynch - Vocals/Programming

Plague of Humanity has played all over NY with bands like Discipline Theory, Exist Among, The Extinct. Dire Descent, Ego Likeness, Panic Lift, One Last Breath, Halo to Havoc, Demon Boy, Driven Mad, As Days Fade and Hanzel Und Gretyl, amongst many others.
The music they create makes you want to bounce.... So bounce down and see the live.......
