Phil Vane (vocals), Dean Jones (vocals), Pete Hurley (guitar), Jerry Clay (bass) and 'Pig Killer' (drums) formed Extreme Noise Terror back in 1985 in Ipswich, England as a heavy Hardcore Punk band.

This lineup released the Radioactive Earslaughter split album with Chaos UK

Jerry Clay was soon replaced by Mark Gardener (Sarcasm)

Pig Killer quit and was replaced by Mick Harris (Napalm Death)

This lineup recorded the 'Holocaust In Your Head' album. however this version was never released as internal disharmony lead to the eviction of Mick Harris - Replaced by Stick (Doom) - The album was re-recorded with the new lineup and released on vinyl

Mark Gardener was evicted and replaced by Pete Nash (Doom)

Phil Vane was next to quit and was replaced by Spit

Spit's stay was short and he was replaced by the returning Vane

Pete Nash quit and was replaced by Mark Bailey (Filthkick)

The lineup of Jones/Vane/Hurley/Stick/Bailey proved the most stable in the bands volatile history - Recordings by this lineup included Peel Session No3, Phonophobia, a re-recording of 'Holocaust In Your Head' (Released on CD) plus various tracks recorded for compilation albums

The collaboration with KLF was the begining of the end for ENT as a Punk band - During this period ENT stopped working on their own material - When KLF 'retired' ENT had no money to continue and no new material to record - This lead to the band merging with Dean Jones side project Raw Noise - Stick was replaced by Raw Noise drummer (and original ENT drummer) Pig Killer, Ali Firouzbakht joined on lead guitar

The style of ENT's music began to change as they attempted to write material which would make money instead of the crust/grind style they were known for - The new material was slower and borrowed heavilly from bands such as GISM, Ministry and Pitch Shifter - The 'Witness To The Persecution' tour of Germany previewed this new style for the first time and was not well received by the fans

The new sound combined with internal disharmonies lead to the departures firstly of Bailey (replaced by Lee Barrett of Disgust) and later of Hurley (who was not replaced)

From this point on ENT became a death metal band bearing little resemblence either in style or lineup to it's roots in hardcore punk as members of Cradle of Filth and Napalm Death joined with Extreme Noise Terror to create the reborn group that would release "Damage 381" in in 1997.

"Being and Nothing" was released by Candlelight in 2001.

In 2004 they released the "Hatred And The Filth" 7" which contains two cover songs recorded in 2004 and material from the 90's which was already a hint that they would get back to their old sound. On the split 10" with Driller Killer in 2007, E.N.T. finally took a step backwards as the newer material was more in the vein of their earlier Crust/Hardcore releases with the addition of occasional blast beats and they have continued in this style to this day.
