Imbroglio originated in Dayton, OH in February of 2007 with founding members D.J. Gilbert (guitars, backing vocals, electronics, and lyrics) & Nathan Harrah (drums, percussion, & lyrics). William Fecke is on vocals. Their influences are Pig Destroyer, Burnt By the Sun, Today Is the Day, Coalesce, Converge, Deadguy, Kiss It Goodbye, & Neurosis.
Early in 2008 the band decided to relocate to Syracuse, NY to get away from small-town life and expand their audience. However, William was not able to make the move.
