ollowing the self-financed debut set Kill I Oughta (1999), featuring founding members Kud (Real Name: Chad Gray; vocals), Gurrg (Real Name: Chad Tribbett; guitar), Ryknow (Real Name: Ryan Martinie; bass who replaced an unknown original member by the second release) and sPaG (Real Name: Matt McDonough; drums), they were singed to ‘Epic' for their follow-up offerings of L.D. 50 (2000), The Beginning Of All Things To End (2001; actually a re-release of their debut but with extra track added) and The End Of All Things To Come (2002). Despitebeing compared to the style of Fear Factory, Korn, and more directly Slipknot, they have managed only a basic pedestrian Thrash Metal sound with nu-metal highlights. Their fetish for face paint, a look they downplayed claiming that their music came before the image, did not gone unnoticed. Their second effort managed a U.S. 85 ranking while the rest assisted in gaining them large-scale exposure during the Metallica 2003 Sanitorium Tour. They have since toned down their stage image while drifting more into the Nu-Metal style with their 2005 effort, Lost And Found.
