Nearly every member of Orange County's the Killing Flame served time in a classic-style hardcore punk unit during the '80s and '90s. Guitarist and bandleader Joe D. Foster was in Uniform Choice, Ignite, No for an Answer, and Speak 714; guitarist Gavin Oglesby was also in No for an Answer; vocalist Joe Nelson was in Triggerman, in addition to serving as a roadie for Quicksand and Civ; the rhythm section, bassist Ed McKirdy and drummer P.T. Pugh, both came from the Suppression Swing, with McKirdy also having played in Hands Tied. After forming in early 1999, The Killing Flame recorded a pair of EPs, The Dream Dies (for California's Livewire imprint) and the German import Back to Ash. The group's full-length debut, Another Breath, was released by EVR in late 2000.
