n 1990 guitarist Preston formed Disinter, with Eddie on vocals, Tom on guitar, Judd on drums and Jay on bass. After Fred (guitar) replaced Tom, Disinter recorded their Disinterra Et Corpus demo. But after the recording and some local shows, Preston put Disinter to rest due to lack of dedication.
In early 1993 Eyegouger, another local band driven by Preston's grinding guitar, replaced bassist Gene Scrotosac with Rectum Wrecker (Real Name: Mike). After 2 years of local shows, a small tour and a few demos, Eyegouger disbanded. Prestonand Mike kept jamming together and in February 1995, added Dave (ex-Funeral Nation; drums). One month thereafter Eddie returned to vocals, and Bats (ex-Gorgasm; bass) also joined. Musically Disinter could be described as old school thrash/speed metal with '90's death metal influences, delivering heavy hooks and brutal riffing, with blinding, blasting, Thrashing drumbeats, guttural growls and screams of pain & agony.
When Disinter officially returned, the Storm Of The Witch demo was born and released to the underground in 1996. Randy Williams of 'Pulverizer Records' became interested and helped Disinter release their debut, Desecrated, later that same year. Desecrated included the 5 songs that were on the Storm... demo and 5 other songs that were recorded at the Storm... recording session.
The next year, a nine song promotional sampler Torn From The Grave was also released. The first 3 songs were new with new vocalist Zion (ex-Tiberon), a band out of Dixon, Illinois. Along with his unsurpassable dedication to the craft, Zion also brought a soul that screamed in anger, rage and fear for live performances, especially present on their With The Blood (1996).
The next release was July of 2000 with the 5 song EP, The Beauty Of Suffering, a limited edition shaped disk. Also a full-length entitled Welcome To Oblivion followed. with new drummer Tom (ex-Ad Infinitum; a former guitar player).
In 2001 Disinter signed to 'Morbid Records' for a 2-album deal starting with Demonic Portraiture, an unreleased indie second set Vedma (2002) followed with the second of their contract As We Burn (2004). Dino would take over bass from Mike LeGros (bass).
2004 would prove to be a very active year for Disinter would release Designed by the Devil, Powered by the Dead 2CD (2004), Enslaving The Dead (A Decade of Desecration) CD/DVD (2004) a disc of mostly covers, live, rare and unreleased that was followed by the Made In Iron EP (2004).
Footnote: Dave Chiarella (a.k.a. Hellstorm; drums) has also been a member of this act in the past. Not affiliated with the Mexican or Peruvian band of the same name.
