In 2003 Corey Athos (Ex-Lacerated & Umbriel) gathered Jesse Carlos, Metal Jerry, and Carson Wrath to form the brutal death metal band, Flesh Consumed coming out of Santa Cruz, California. With Corey taking on vocals, Jesse on guitar, Metal Jerry on drums and Carson on bass, they wrote just short of half an album and Flesh Consumed split. Unable to find a new guitarist and drummer, Corey stepped up to handling not only vocals, but guitar, and drum programming as well. In mid 2005 Corey re-formed Flesh Consumed with bassist Curtis Budetti, and soon after were joined by Alex Cortez (Lacerated & Sacrificio) on drums; they immediately started writing for the "Inhuman Butchery" EP. Jeff Russell fused with them on second guitar, and they went into the studio in May of 2006 with Aaron Rauber engineering, mixing, and mastering the project. "Inhuman Butchery" features Corey on vocals/lead guitar, Jeff Russell on guitar, Curtis Budetti on bass, and Alex Cortez on drums.
