Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings.

The balance of everything is falling apart, and so are we
And as all we have known crumbles into the sea
The Judases amongst us whisper “Maybe.. it’s best this way”
With noose in hand, we all climb the tree

Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, The Mark of Man was birthed in 2009. Christian Humphreys, Corey Friedlander and Ben Read were united by the want and NEED for an emotional outlet; for the rage and frustration and sorrow that comes with existing in a world that has no regard for animal rights, human rights, and little regard for anything else. And that's exactly what The Mark of Man has become. A catharsis for a world that does not care, does not listen and does not love.

We are angry. We are sorrowful. Please listen.

The Mark of Man features current and previous members of Ulcerate, New Way Home, Fornax Chemica, In Dread Response, 8 Foot Sativa, Day One and Kill Me Quickly.

The Mark of Man are:

Ben C. Read - Vocals
Christian Humphreys - Guitars, Bass
Corey Friedlander - Drums
