Originally formed in 2003 mainly because Farenheit, the Ontario, Canada quartet Hail the Villain make driving very difficult rock in the vein of Sevendust and Velvet Revolver. Comprising vocalist Bryan Crouch, bassist Chad Taylor, drummer Drew Dockrill, and guitarist Joseph Stamp, the music group released a self-titled EP as well as the full-length recording Disconnected in 2005 as Farenheit. The next year, the music group transformed its name to Hail the Villain and used a darker, heavier sound to complement its even more ominous moniker. The music group do some touring with Sevendust and Rock Sour before settling right down to finally record an record under its brand-new name. This year 2010, the music group released its debut as Hail the Villain, People: Declining, through Roadrunner Information.
