Marcus Acosta - Guitar
Tony Stanziano - Bass
Brian Jimenez - Drums Commented the band, "We just put out our debut EP, '200grind', which contains three songs that sum up our sound pretty well. Most of the material we've written in the past few months is simple, old-school grindcore in the vein of NAPALM DEATH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, ASSUCK, and so on, mixed with old-school New York hardcore like CRO-MAGS and GORILLA BISCUITS. "We stole our name from the BENEDICTION album; we're paying tribute to what we grew up on. We're not reinventing the wheel, because so many bands try to do that and fail."
