Raging Speedhorn were formed in 1998 from the merging of the bands Soulcellar and Box. Through a 'frightening' stage presence and heavy re-working of riffs reminiscent of early Black Sabbath, the band quickly established itself as a major presence within the UK's heavy metal scene.
Raging Speedhorn featured two vocalists, a style largely inspired by the UK hardcore band, Hard to Swallow, who were latter vocalist, Bloody Kev's former band. The band's first single, "Thumper" (produced by industrial veteran, Marc Heal) was released in 2000 to significant critical acclaim. In 2001 they charted in the UK Singles Chart with "The Gush".
On early Raging Speedhorn recordings the music can be characterised by pounding basslines, heavily distorted riff-thick guitarwork and subject content generally (but certainly not exclusively) comprising of hedonism, drug-use, violence, antipathy for major band labels and depression. - wikipedia
