Band information

This was a diverse and interesting Perth band featuring an infectious mixture of metal, rap, funk, alternative grooves and ethnic music. Non Intentional Lifeform was formed as a side project by Declan Barry while a member of Botticelli's Angel, but was so successful that after scoring supports to the likes of Fear Factory the band was offered a contract by Roadrunner Records and moved base to Melbourne. There the band quickly released a debut EP followed by one of the most innovative rock albums of the late 90s in the shape of Uisce. This catapulted the band to national attention and they embarked on a national tour with Superheist. Virtually as soon as it had ended, however, the band imploded with Barry keeping the name and the rest of the group splitting to form a short-lived band called Pencilneck.

A new line-up toured with the Deftones, followed up by the release of the EP "Pathogen". NIL came to an end after this.

Pedro went on to play drums for Killing Heidi.
