Fewer still forge a legacy and history which makes them a group really worth knowing, with a story that's passed on from metal fan to metal fan and music which resonates through generations.

Formed in New Orleans in 1988, the band released their first album, "In The Name Of Suffering" two years later and went on to become a legendary name in the metal world, being credited as pioneers of sludge metal and putting on some of the most fierce live shows to have ever graced a stage.
