Human Clay

U4IA

Human Clay was formed by friends Jeff Scott Soto & Marcel Jacob. These guys first met in 1985 - both appearing on Yngwie’s Marching Out cd. After that, they both went their separate ways. Luckily for AOR fans, a band called Talisman was formed in the early '90s, bringing Soto & Jacob back together. Human Clay was formed as a side project. The music is similar to Talisman, just hands-down great melodic metal full of hooks that will keep you screaming for more. If you never heard of Human Clay, do yourself a favor, and buy U4IA, it delivers tight, melodic metal and one of the best vocal performances of Soto's career thus far. --Mike
