Sourvein were originally from Wilmington, North Carolina (aka Cape Fear). Back then they were more of a (self described) "MDC meets My War-era Black Flag meets the Melvins". In 1994 Sourvien did the "30 Days of Roadkill" USA tour with Anal Cunt, Eyehategod, the Candy Snatchers and Buzzoven. This spawned a split 7 inch with Buzzoven. In 1996, singer T-Roy joined Buzzoven on samples and back-up vocals, which he did till they split up in 1998.

Boston's DOOMRIDERS are sonically antisocial and undeniably unforgettable as they come. DOOMRIDERS are comprised of a stellar lineup featuring Nate Newton (Converge, Old Man Gloom), along with longtime friends Jebb Riley (There Were Wires, Disappearer), Chris Pupecki (Cast Iron Hike), and JR Conners (Cave In). The demon child of their collective unhealthy obsession with Classic Rock, Hardcore, and Skateboarding, DOOMRIDERS are a rare beast in today's music world. Their soulful no frills approach conjures the spirits of Thin Lizzy, Entombed, and damn near every evil in between.
Yep, the band's name is Lesbian. Why? Well, equally cool names like Black Sabbath, Venom and Pentagram were already taken. But also, the name Lesbian evokes pure, sexually charged freedom - and that's what rock music is all about.

Each of the album's four tracks shifts moods, dynamics and styles.
