HUMANOID is the space ambient rock project of Marthieu Marcotte, famed guitarrist of progressive death metal band AUGURY. Originating from Abitibi, in the north of Quebec, Canada, Mathieu Marcotte started playing guitar in 1990 at the age of 14. His growing passion for both metal and classical music inspired him to compose with electrical and classical guitars at the same time.

After putting together a few compositions, he decided, accompanied by local musicians, to form the death metal band SPASME, who during their 7 years of existence, were know by touring throughout Quebec. Two recordings were produced by the band, that is to say the demo "Traumatism" (Indie, 1995) and the album "Deep Inside" (Neoblast rec, 1999 / Galy rec, 2001).

The year of 2001 marked the beginning of a new era as Mathieu chose to quit the formation SPASME to concentrate on the elaboration of a new group. It is with the collaboration of experimented and talented musicians from the Quebec metal scene that he founded AUGURY in 2002, an extreme progressive metal band. Weaving a musical style proper to themselves, AUGURY is noticed internationally with the release of "Concealed" (Galy Records, 2004), album which was worthy of a nomination at the MIMI'S gala in Montreal and an excellent reception from critics, medias and fans of metal music throughout the world. Two Canadian tours took place thereafter with QUO VADIS and UNEXPECT, respectively in 2005 and 2006. During this intense period where the band played many shows, they took the time to record a "promo-ep" consisting of two new tracks and release the European version of "Concealed" on Adipocère Records.

A research of sound, combined with great musical curiosity, led Mathieu to develop an idea in the beginning of 2006: Set-up an acoustic project combining all of his progressive, classical and metal influences.

HUMANOID is the name of the new instrumental solo project of Mathieu Marcotte. On the album Remembering Universe, the guitar is treated as an orchestra creating dynamics and textured effects which interweave with one another. These acoustic space rock songs have varied influences such as: CYNIC, PINK FLOYD and OPETH and are enriched by the collaboration of many guests:
