In 1991, there was a group called Spiritual Endings that included Sean Villaros and Mark Lavallee. In 1992, after a few personnel changes, including the addition of Fred Hunter, they changed their name to Fainting in Coils. That name did not stay around a long time, since before the end of the year, the group, by then a three-piece, changed its name to Lands End. By 1994, they released their first CD, Pacific Coast Highway. The next CD by the group was 1995's Terra Serranum on a new label, Cyclops. This was followed in 1996 by An Older Land, which was mostly earlier material that had not yet been released. Next up was their finest disc, Natural Selection. Released in 1998, the disc was two years in the making, and it was brilliant enough to be worth it. In 1999, the group followed up with Drainage. Drainage was a live album that included some material that wouldn't fit on Natural Selection.
