The Dead Beginners were formed in 1992 as Autumn Verses by T.Sitomaniemi and E.Lahdenperä. In 1994 the band recorded a demotape, in 1996 a promotape and in 1997 a debut album, which came out through German Solistitium Records. This particular album got some good response but was spread very poorly. In February/March of 1999 they recorded their second full-length and in January 2000 the third one. Due to problems neither one of these albums were released through Solistitium and therefore the band changed to Finnish Spikefarm Records.
