Abuse began collaborating on their trademark style of punishing hyper-grind, chunk-beef in May 1999 as a 3-piece featuring MisterNasty (bass), BigPimp (guitars/shrieks), and BitchSlapper (drums). In late September 1999, after auditioning multiple vocalists, OffalConsumer was invited into the band as a permanent member and on November 12, 1999 Abuse unleashed their brutality upon the unsuspecting masses with their first live show.
On October 25, 2000 a now-discontinued 5-song demo CD was released and received rave reviews from fans & critics, and sparked substantial interest from several labels. This demo was never properly promoted or distributed because the band members deemed it to be a poor representation of Abuse. Finally, on November 21, 2001, after 11 months of recording and tweaking, the 13 song album "Like A Virgin" was unleashed. An instant classic, this sadistic masterpiece of truly ground-breaking deathgrind is a must-have for all fans of extreme music and places Abuse amongst death metal's elite.
Abuse then rampaged through western North America, raping and pillaging after victorious assaults in Alberta, Washington and Oregon. Before the end of 2002, Abuse had opened for such esteemed colleagues such as Cannibal Corpse, Kreator, Destruction, Cryptopsy, Blasphemy, Exhumed, Nevermore and many more established bands before taking a brief break.
2003 arrives and Abuse has returned stronger than ever, with new members MisterFister (bass, replacing MisterNasty) and Sinned (guitars) in tow.
