Mindrot

The band began in 1989 in Westminster, California. After a year of rehearsal and lineup adjustments, the band held a demo release in a living room in Huntington Beach, California with Glycine Max in June 1990. Shows would follow with other notable bands; Born Against, Rorschach, Neurosis, Bolt Thrower, Grave, Nausea, and Voodoo Glow Skulls.

The band began in 1989 in Westminster, California. After a year of rehearsal and lineup adjustments, the band held a demo release in a living room in Huntington Beach, California with Glycine Max in June 1990. Shows would follow with other notable bands; Born Against, Rorschach, Neurosis, Bolt Thrower, Grave, Nausea, and Voodoo Glow Skulls. The band next recorded the Endeavor EP and released it through their own label, Tempest Records, following with a split 7" with a band called Apocalypse (not to be confused with the more notable band also called Apocalypse). In 1992, the first major line-up change came with the addition of long time friend Evan Kilbourne on drums, with whom they recorded Live in the Studio (produced by Jim Barnes, who also produced Dawning and Soul) . In late 1992, Faded Dream was recorded, then released by record label Relapse Records. In 1994, another line-up change occuried. Matt Parrillo decided it would be in his best interests to leave the band and pursue his other band Dystopia as well as his graphic arts career. He was replaced by John Flood, another good friend with the band (as well as one of Matt Fisher's former bandmates in Rupture, which went on to become Confrontation). Forlorn was released in 1995, followed by Dawning. Relapse Records and Nuclear Blast Records ended their business relationship with each other, ending European distribution for Dawning. After the release of Soul, in early 1998 Mindrot played its last show, unknown to anyone there or even anyone in the band. It took place at Club Mesa in Costa Mesa, California with Oxbow. No more than 30 people were in attendance included in the audience guitarist and SST mastermind Greg Ginn. The band obstensibly broke up when Evan Kilbourne decided to pursue other musical interests in Save Ferris. « hide
