Last Chapter's first incarnation formed in Arlington, TX, in 1989 as a trio called Brick Window. The following year, the band added second guitarist Cody Griffith and decided to change their name. One of the really weird things about this band is that Last Chapter, while not a "studio band" by choice, don't play live and have never toured. In fact, during the eight years between the formation of Brick Window and the recording of Last Chapter's first and only album The Living Waters in 1997, the band never really had a singer. Robert Lowe, vocalist for cult doom metalers Solitude Aeturnus, stood in on vocals on both the 1993 demo sessions and the recording of The Living Waters. Despite the band's musical competency and well-defined songwriting vision, the severe handicap in the vocal department had actually caused the band to dissolve sometime in 1994. After some pleading from Brainticket Records owner and Solitude Aeturnus guitar alumnus John Perez, Last Chapter agreed to open the book again in 1995 and began preparing to enter the studio in January and February of 1997 to record The Living Waters.
