BreakCell / Bio

2006 - Mike and Kritzer meet. They discuss the idea of forming a band after jamming one day and Kritzer shared songs he had written like "The Serpent."

2007 - They decided to seriously consider this route and decided to room together while at WV Wesleyan College.
That summer the two jammed a few times at KRITPIT studios. That winter they write "Fall Away"

2008 - After enlisting Chris Lingenfelter (Ling) and Daniel Skipper. The performs "Fall Away" and "Victim of Lust" at OxJam at WV Wesleyan College. The rest of the year was spent writing new material and figuring out how to record. Also Ling quits and Brandon (Ug) comes in

2009 - The CD begins to take shape...then Mike breaks his hand. Kritzer begins recording all the rhythms again. Once Mike heals, he rehabilitates himself to get back the technique that he once had. Also Ug is now out of the band

2010 - The most productive year and the birth of BreakCell. The CD "Eternity" is almost finished and with the addition of Ryan Scott on drums and Brian Garlow on bass, things are looking good. Keeping in touch with Wet Pants Productions (seriously) means that shows can start popping up all over the place. The new added difficulty....Mike is at Penn State and Krit, Ryan, and Brian are in WV.
