Swedish natives Pontus Berggrensson (drums), Lasse Hindberg (guitar/vocals), and Göran Frennesson (bass) shaped the Rhinos in springtime of 2000. Two months afterwards, the music group added Björn Persson on second electric guitar and vocals. The music group documented after some gigs, leading to the ten-song, promo-only Thirst. Longtime live support vocalist, Leif Svensson, was asked to become listed on the Rhinos being a full-time member, offering vocals and harmonica. Ultimately, Svensson stepped up as frontman for the Rhinos. Season from the Rhinos premiered in Oct of 2003 on Rainbow Quartz Information.
