New York's own Merauder were on the forefront of the metalcore wave in the early '90s, and few bands have had the pleasure of receiving the worldwide attention and embellishing the genre's conviction as they have. With their formation in 1990, the band's early days were spent playing live shows with other old-school hardcore and metal notables such as Sick Of It All, Carnivore, Motorhead, Morbid Angel and the Cro-Mags, and along the way they released a pair of demos and contributed a track to the now legendary 1992 compilation, East Coast Assault.

Recorded at various periods and sessions throughout '98 and '99, Five Deadly Venoms (the title of course was inspired by the famous kung-fu movie) delivered in-your-face vocals combined with creative playing and song arrangements making this a unique, forceful and at times quite melodic metalcore album.
