Examination Of The… started off in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in July 2000, consisting of ex-current members of hardcore bands The Spirit Of Versailles, Eclipse of Eden, The Attica Underground, etc.

Their earlier material was faster and more metallic in sound and was also more popular among fans of the members' previous bands.

In time, the band began to head in a different direction, drawing heavy influence from bands like Neurosis and Isis, which can be heard on their last full length. The band split up sometime in late 2003.
