Formed in 1994, in the San Francisco Bay Area, BENÜMB quickly built a respected reputation within the hardcore community with their explosive, aggressive sound. Withstanding various lineup changes during their early years, this 5-piece D.I.Y. powerhouse solidified into an absolutely vicious assembly that lives and thrives within multiple musical scenes.

Benumb's 2005 split with Premonitions of War on Thorp Records was thier last; the band broke up the next year.
