Sledgeback formed in 2004 as an attempt of Gabor Hun to continue what he started in the early 1990's in Hungary with his previous band C.A.F.B.. Hun wrote dozens of songs even before Sledgeback started but not knowing enough English he had to study the language next to work on his own and finish the songs later. 4 months after the band set foot on stage the first time, Sliver records signed Sledgeback and released the debut album "People's choice". Following the success of the first album, the label extended the contract and brought out the second full length "Perception becomes reality" in 2006. After a dispute between the label and the band in 2007, Sledgeback left Sliver records and released the European edition of "Perception becomes reality" thru the Dutch Rebellion records on CD and limited edition clear Vinyl later in 2007.Despite many difficulties Hun started working on the new album on the following winter. Sledgeback recorded about 20 songs in the enduring 2 year long production of the new material and once again overcame the losses it suffered the previous years with an album that outgrew the past releases.

The following year the band went thru several member changes but finalized it's line up in 2009 with former Himsa drummer Tim Mullen and War babies bass player Shawn Trotter joining to Gabor Hun. With the help of Mullen and Trotter the band finally finished the long awaited new Sledgeback material. Later in 2010 Sledgeback released their first ever split album "Reality bites" with the long standing UK punk outfit Foreign Legion which was followed by the third full length record "Bite the bullet" in October 2010.Later Sledgeback released couple of new songs on compilations like Shut the F*** up and listen" (with tracks from GG Allin and MDC) and "Zombie Mosh" (also Antiseen, Raw Power) followed by another split cd release with Los Angles punk rockers The Generators and Gabi Hun's older project C.A.F.B..
2012 brought the first retrospective compilation "7 years like a broken record" with 16 of Sledgeback's most popular songs from the 2004-2011 era.
