In 2013, the band released what would be their last album called Democratic Solution, via their facebook page for free download.<ref name="!.T.O.O.H.! Official Facebook Page">!.T.O.O.H.! Official Facebook Page</ref> Democratic Solution marks a major musical departure from their previous recordings, in the sense that they retain the progressive death metal/grindcore characteristics and complex song structures, but instead of instrumental background, Humanoid and Schizoid use electronic instrumentation & effects, electronic drums, clean vocals and ample use of keyboards throughout compositions, reminiscent of the brothers' other project, §§. Reception for this release has been very polarised as some review it as one of their worst, and some as one of their best works.<ref>Democratic Solution Reviews - Metal Archives</ref>
During this time the duo came forth publicly regarding the troubles of Humanoid's mental health, as he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia during the recording of Democratic Solution.<ref name="!.T.O.O.H.! Official Facebook Page"/>
The band performed their last show on February 16, 2013 in Ostrava and the following day announced their disbandment due to the issues of playing live, saying that "it is for him [Humanoid] too stressful" and that "to continue as a studio project would be pointless".<ref name="!.T.O.O.H.!
