Formation and 7 Horns 7 Eyes

In 2006, friends, Kyle Wood, Brandon and Aaron Smith, Chris Weiford, and Steven Bye started a band, that they named 7 Horns 7 Eyes, which comes from Revelation 5:6 in the Bible. They recorded their self-titled debut EP in 2006 and released it in 2007. After 7 Horns 7 Eyes was released, Weiford and Bye left the band and were replaced by friend Sean Alf, and Ryan Wood, Kyle's brother.

"Huntour", Convalescence EP, and Throes of Absolution

In 2009, the band was selected for Demon Hunter's first annual "Huntour" along with the resurrected Living Sacrifice, The Famine, Focused, and Advent. After the "Huntour" the band began to record their first album and released the first single of the album, "The Vindicator". After recording the whole album, Kyle Wood left to get married. Aaron Smith then contacted his friend JJ "Shiv" Polachek of Monotheist, to be the new vocalist and re-record vocals. In 2011, the band released Convalescence EP and in 2012, their debut album, Throes of Absolution was released. After the release, Sean Alf left the band, and was replaced by Zack Uidl.
