In Westerville, Ohio in the summer of 2000, Jason Gentile (vocals/guitar), Ryan Meade (percussion) and Terry Streetman (bass) came together to form a band. They recruited Garrison Ball (lead guitarist) to join them, but that partnership quickly fell through. Having little experience with being in a band, they produced very little in their early years.

In 2001, with a lineup of Gentile (vocals/guitar), Meade (percussion), Streetman (guitar) and Randi Paselk (bass), they recorded a cheap 4 song demo and began to get their name out around the newly forming local scene.

Soon after they recorded their demo, the lineup changed again, with Alex Drabek replacing Paselk as the bassist. Following this change, the band made arrangements for their first show. The show was played at local venue Midgard Comics and was one of the best attended shows in the venue’s short history.

Immediately following the show, the lineup experienced its biggest change, with Meade and Drabek quitting and Kevin Roberts joining to take over drumming duties.

The band continued playing small gigs, with a veritable revolving-door of bassists joining and quitting. Eventually Jon McGory joined the band as lead guitarist, leaving Gentile free to focus on singing. This lineup would remain until the band’s break-up in 2004.

Before their split, the band recorded a final five-song demo, dubbed “The Kyle Chamberlain Sessions”, named for the friend who produced and played bass on the recordings.

With all four members heading to college, the band was forced to split up in the summer of 2004.

Jason Gentile is currently working on solo projects, achieving some radio airplay and a wide following in the area surrounding Miami (OH) University.
