Inhumate are a French deathgrind and grindcore band. They started off as a death metal band in 1990 but with a line up change in 1993 where Stephane and Olivier left the band and were replaced by Valentin and Sebastien, the band's musical stile shifted towards grindcore.

The band was formed in September 1990 by bassist Fred, who went to Strasbourg looking for musicians with whom he could form a death metal band. He quickly found Olivier (vocals), Stéphanie (drums) and David (guitar), and the band formed under the name Inhumate.
After a year, Stéphanie and Olivier left the band and were replaced by Valentin (drums) and Sébastien (vocals). With this line-up, the band became more grindcore-orientated and recorded its first demo, Abstract Suffering, in 1993. In 1994, Valentin and Sébastien left the group and were replaced by Yannick (drums) and Christophe (vocals).
This line-up remained stable and more focused on grind. In May 1995, they recorded their second demo, Grind Your Soul. In the following years, they released 4 studio albums: Internal Life (September 1996), Ex-Pulsion (November 1997), Growth (June 2000) and Life (February 2004).
