Insect Warfare are a grindcore band from Houston, TX, known for their unbridled ferocity and studious dedication to perpetuating this radical extreme music subgenre in its most undiluted and least accessible form. Originally founded in 2004, the band quickly made a name for itself by releasing a string of solo and split EPs between 2005 and 2007 while embarking on tours as far afield as Japan and Australia -- such was the positive word of mouth preceding their inexorable advance. Their first "full-length album" (such things being relative in a genre where songs tend to last between 30 and 90 seconds each), the 20-track World Extermination, was released independently in 2007, but it only took another year before the disc was given worldwide distribution by Earache Records. At the time of its recording, Insect Warfare consisted of vocalist Rahi, guitarist Beau, touring bassist Alex Hughes, and drummer Dobber Beverly.
