Holy Lamb was formed in the fall of 1991 in Rīga, Latvia by brothers Ēriks and Aigars Červinskis. A main objective for the band was put forward, and that was to play thrash/speed metal music. At the time, only two members of the current line-up were in the band, Aigars and Uģis Qba Zemītis. The original line-up also featured lead guitarist Ēriks Jugāns and Aigars' drumming brother Ēriks. By the spring of 1993, it became apparent that Jugāns had lost any interest to continue his career with the band and subsequently decided to leave due to musical differences.
