Fog of war was formed in late 2004 from the remnants of two local thrash groups, C.H.U.D. Crusher, and Demilitia. The initial line-up consisted of Josh Branum on vocals/lead guitar, Joe Orterry on bass, Matt O’Connell on drums and Jon Fryman on lead guitar. Opting to forgo playing cover songs, F.O.W. began cranking out original tunes from the start, and in no time had built a modest setlist which was recorded, and thus, the first demo was released in May of ‘05. The earlier recorded material was a little scattered in terms of influence, the vocals bordering on black metal, and many melodic riffs and leads rounded out a primarily thrash influenced sound. As time went on, the true sound of F.O.W. began to take shape. As the next batch of songs came to fruition, a faster, more aggressive proto-punk/hardcore edge became more prevalent, crossover style vocals replacing the raw black metal-esque vocals. Among the undeniable crossover influence was still a tight, technical musicianship synonymous with the thrash metal name. With a solid sense of direction in place, a second demo, the M.C.T. EP was released in spring of 2006.
