These sunn o))) amp-worshipping hard-hitters made their first realization as a band on the instrumental "A Stasis was Born" demo with members Michael Leonard Maiewski and Rickey Aldridge in 2005. Another demo, "We, Are Falling Upward"' with Maiewski on vocals was recorded the following year at Flowering Hell Studio in Tucson, Arizona. described the band as "Chugging drone/doom with strong elements from doomcore and scream-your-lungs- out vocals. Then a 3rd demo "As Thy Moss Grows Black...(Awaiting Thee Flesh Parade)" was recorded back in Maine in late 2007. Featuring new member sd on drums. Released on February 19th 2008.
