About Band


Original Guitar | Rock | Metal band from Southern Australia.

In less than twelve months, Almost Human has achieved more than they could have ever hoped for and it seems that all the hard work is finally starting to pay off.

“With new members, new songs and a new CD on the way, we’ve probably covered more ground than the entire fifteen years we were together”, says front man Damien Kelly

After recently picking up the support for one of the most celebrated heavy metal bands of all time. Judas Priest, the boys are busy in the studio rehearsing, recording & writing. 

Hailing from Southern Australia, Almost Human are considered one of the pioneers of Heavy Metal music in the Southern Parts of Australia. Following in the footsteps of other British rock bands, such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heap, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest and Maiden, Almost Human deliver the entire package and have very quickly built a up an enormous following around Australia. 

Heavy Metal hit the Australian shores in the mid - eighties and quickly found its way underground as an aggressive, anti-establishment music culture not unlike the punk scene that was soon to follow. Heavy Metal was hard, loud and angry and fitted "in perfectly with the Aussie pub culture. It was around this time that Almost Human reached the height of their popularity and became billed as one of Australia’s most exciting live bands. Ironically, Almost Human also became ambassadors to the Heavy Metal scene, regularly covering Judas Priest and Saxon songs and building a cult like following of their own.

With over two decades of history collectively, Almost Human has quite an amazing resume. As well as playing hundreds of shows both here and overseas, and supporting bands such as Whitesnake and Cheap Trick, the Humans have racked up over 50 original songs and are still writing new material.

“We’re so excited to have played on the same stage with bands such as Judas Priest, Whitesnake & Cheap Trick. We looked up to these bands for so many years not just as great performers but also as songwriters.” says Damien, “and although we understand that we're certainly not in the same league as some of these bands just yet, we are hoping our music is able to reach out to some of their fans as well”

“With a new record out in the next few months, it’s a great opportunity for people that haven’t seen the band to experience our style of music. When Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters heard some of our demo tracks recently, he said, “It was one of the best demos he’d ever heard”. It was such a compliment and really showed to us that were on the right track”
