The band was formed by Scott "Guitpicker" Cameron, Raphael "Raph" Storto, and James "Bob" Cave in 1993 as Sinister Sam. The addition of Shane Brouse in 1994 coupled with a trademark conflict with a band from San Jose, California led to the renaming of the band in 1996.

The band's name change was facilitated by Tool / A Perfect Circle / Puscifer vocalist Maynard James Keenan. A friend of Brouse's, Keenan, was approached to pick one of four names chosen as candidates by the band and become the band's mentor of sorts.

The band appeared on The Tom Green Show in Canada. They played with, and opened for Melvins, Voivod, Exciter, Annihilator, and Varga and many others. The band was recognized by Toronto radio station Q107 as being one of the three best independent rock bands in Ontario and enjoyed top-of-the-chart international success on MP3.com and Garage Band.
