The foundational line up of China's first Metal Core Band EGO FALL (other name: AGAINST ME) came from the former inner mongolian grunge band called SUBCONSCIOUS (潜意识 Qianyishi) which was found back in 2000 with Su BoRi also on the vocals. After a temporary departure of Guitarist Wang Yang on year later, a new vocalist Wang Bin came into the band along with Guitarist Mao ChenWei and led the music changed more towards metal style. Like many underground musicians in China band members came to Beijing searching for a better destiny in Autumn of the same year but it didn't work out as expected so they returned home soon after while Wang Bin and Chen Wei left the band because of musical differences and found another melodic death metal band called FUNERAL POETRY (殉葬诗 Xunzang Shi) back in Inner Mongolia. Wang Bin's replacement was found in Bo Yin (now vocalist at 杭盖 HangGai). In the beginning of 2002 Yu Chao joint in as Keyboard player.
The bands music of that time was focused on a combination between Mongolian folk melodies in NuMetal manner. Spring 2003 the band came back to Beijing once again to produce their Demo. But unfortunately Bo Yin had to quit because of his studies, thus Keyboader Yu Chao was switched onto the vocals in May.
In the beginning of 2004 the band name was officially changed to AGAINST ME, and the music style tend more into power metal a this time. On their 3rd travel to Beijing they found a new man on bass in Chao LuoMeng, who came into the band on sujection of VOODOO's (or: ZERONE) Drumer. With this line up AGAINST ME start to do club gigs in Beijings underground. Until the fall to 2005 former Vocalist Wang Bin and Guitarist Wang Yan came back and brought their melodic death influences into band. Now with two shouters on stage they also let different elements like industrial, NuMetal etc. flow into their music and mix it all up into nowadays Metal Core Style. Both Vocalists are screaming and growling like extreme metal as well as singing very emotional like emo core, the guitars are kicking with full load of bouncing rhythms.
Finally before the hot summer of 2005 came, AGAINST ME put out a 3piece demo incl. new songs in modern Metal Core style. Both Vocalists sound a little bit different on the record, the whole music is more emotional and less powerful as their live performances.
In October 2005, they performed during the Midi Music Festival 2005.
