Intestine Baalism

In 1991, Intestine Baalism was formed in the suburbs of Tokyo, Japan by Seiji Kakuzak and other local musicians.

They started as a thrash metal band, but soon changed their style to true death metal and began playing at local clubs in Tokyo. Intestine Baalism's first milestone was the release of demo The Energumenus in 1994, which quickly sold over 500 copies. Encouraged by the good response to the demo, Intestine Baalism got an album deal, and in 1997, their first album, An Anatomy Of The Beast, was released by Repulse Records. An Anatomy Of The Beast was lauded by underground metalheads around the world.

The Living Fields

2002
In the autumn of 2002, The Living Fields was born as an outlet for guitarist Jason Muxlow's doom inclinations and populist beliefs. Fed up with both the tuneless brutality of the late '90s and right-wing idiocy pouring out of the metal community after September 11th, work began on initial compositions with the intent to combine doom-fueled songwriting with the progressive politics metal once stood for.

2003
The music progressed quickly, and before long, Muxlow was looking for a partner to bring a voice to the score. Jon Higgs was contacted on the basis of his energetic vocal performance with Monsterworks, but it was his similar world view and undiluted passion for metal that ultimately sealed the deal. Within weeks, Higgs had cut vocals for the newly-christened Empires Fall, and though far from perfect, the song clearly had legs. Higgs also proved dead-on lyrically, and both The Miseries Never Cease and A Leveling Spirit grew out of the ensuing enthusiasm.
