Biography

1997 - Members of the bands Point of no Return and Newspeak join forces to start a straight ahead old style hardcore project, because their main bandas were becoming too metal/weirdo. Still sounding like a a mix between Chain of Strength and Manliftingbanner (or something like that), we play some shows and write a few songs. In the beginning we were called Reborn.

1998 - We get bored with the kind of music we were playing and become faster and harder, aiming to mix what we were doing with old scandinavian hardcore and bands like Heresy. Inspired by the movie Warriors, the name I Shot Cyrus is adopted.

1999- We record some songs for the compilation LP called Thrashmaster. It’s also, Infect and Discarga’s first releases. 2 bands that share a lot of history with us. It also featured Insanus, Newspeak and Test Ban Treaty, 3 good bands that broke up soon after. First drummer leaves.

2000 - The band is reestructured and becomes more serious. New drummer Pierre (from Insanus and Constrito) was fast as lightning and we become “the fastest hardcore band in the planet” (according to some reviews).

2001 - Guitar player Tarcisio is replaced by Choker (also ex Insanus - the one famous for riping his pants off onstage) and bassist Varuko is replaced by Tatiana (Infect/No Violence).

We recorded the songs for our split EPs with Diaspora and Gmork (released in Germany) aand the 4 way Split “Drunk Fools vs. True Till Death”, with Jäzzus, Merda and Evil Idols.
