Hailing from Worcester, MA, Warhorse (never to become confused using the second-tier ’70s supergroup offering one-time Deep Crimson bassist Nick Simper) was shaped by Jerry Orne (bass/vocals) and Mike Hubbard (drums) in 1992. Having performed with several local death metallic rings, the duo originally pursued a slower, even more traditional design of weighty metal somewhere within Dark Sabbath and sludge kings Crowbar.

Krista Vehicle Guilder (guitars/vocals) became a member of the group with time for his or her self-financed 1998 self-titled debut, but was quickly changed by guitarist Todd Laskowski. After locating a house with the Southern Lord label, the trio came back to actions in January 2001, liberating the milling, doom metallic masterpiece As Heaven Becomes to Ash…, mainly because serious challenging to doom Gods Electric powered Wizard mainly because the U.S. offers managed to make.
