Arsebreed was founded during winter 2000 and started out as a band totally
devoted in making furious brutal US-style death metal in the
vein of Deeds Of Flesh and Deicide. After a few months a 5 track demo
entitled “Arsestabbers” was recorded, which was self released in April 2001 under the former bandname Bloodcum.
Reactions from the press and fans were overwhelming and this resulted in performing a lot of shows and getting recognition in the Dutch and also German underground communities. Everything was becoming more serious, yet unfortunately this could not be said about all band members. This finally resulted in a break up in 2002, where the band disbanded. After 2 years founding members Daan and Pranger got back together and formed a new line-up around them to start off Arsebreed again. Next to those two guitarists the line-up was now completed with Frank (ex- Pyaemia) on bass, Joel (Pyaemia) and Robbe K (Disavowed) on vocals and Floris (Mangled) on drums. With this new line-up the band started sweating out the rehearsal spot to write their full length album, entitled “Munching The Rotten” which was released in the second half of 2005. Regardless the obvious obligations to the other bands all members participate in the band will perform shows in support for their album. And so far memorable shows on festivals such as Ludwigshafen Deathfest, Neurotic Deathfest and the Mountains Of Death festival were done. While Floris took off to focus on Mangled only, the band welcomed new drummer Romain Goulon in January 2006. Romain left the band in 2007, because of his busy schedule with Necrophagist. Right now Arsebreed has finished all the material for their sophomore second album, which will be released by the mighty Unique Leader in 2012!
