Founded by guitarist Gennady Savin in February 2008, Ease of Disgust quickly found their signature sound and style as a deathcore band. After several line-up changes, the band was joined by former Dismantle bassist Ruben and Abominable Putridity bassist Andrew Disterov. A few months later, Ease of Disgust found a drummer, Anton Samohvalov. Soon, the band began playing live shows and recording their debut release. The line-up was finalized with the inclusion of guitarist Alexey Sazhin. In the summer of 2009, Ease of Disgust released their debut record, an EP entitled The Shell.
