Artist Biography by

Malformed Earthborn was an unusual side project featuring bassists Shane Embury (Napalm Death) and Danny Lilker (Nuclear Assault, Anthrax, Brutal Truth, etc.), with drummer Scott Lewis (Brutal Truth). Formed in the summer of 1992, the trio took their sonic cues from heavy industrialists like Ministry and Godflesh, noise-rock artists like Swans, and good old speed metal to concoct an aggressive, but strangely dance-inflected effort in 1995's Defiance of the Ugly by the Merely Repulsive. Understandably, the album left many fans of the musicians' other projects feeling rather confused, and, whether through coincidence or design, Malformed Earthborn was not heard from again.
