Formed: 2002
From: Orlando, FL, United States
Last Known Status: Active


Former Dead Nervous system singer, Strain formed the band with Drummer Chris (ex-Undercore), guitarist Alex, and bassist Matt (Mortem A.D. and Equinox). They started off with a song called “Mosh" that was made for the Monsters of the Midday on 104.1FM. Unfortunately the song wasn’t exactly the direction they wanted musically, but it was able to get their name out there. After writing new songs in a much different style and achieving a steady fan base playing numerous shows, they recorded a demo at Audiohammer Studios.
