4 people who wanted to make music got together. Rob wanted to make metal, Boogdal wanted to make breakdowns, Brian wanted to make punk rock, Mike wanted to make noise. (the)rapist is the result. It started as a studio project to base breakdown hardcore around noise passages. Since the inception, (the)rapist has had 3 practices and recorded 2 songs. (the)rapist will probably never play shows, although they say if the opportunity arose it would be fun. If anyone wants to be drummer for their project, feel free to contact them.
