The Nihilistic Front formed in January 2005. The initial intent was to fuse elements from bands like Godflesh and Disembowelment and would be an instrumental one-man solo project. It became apparent that something was missing, so Gaz called upon Chris, an old f(r)iend from Excarnated to contribute on vocals. Gaz had previously spent a few years on guitar/bass in Excarnated, and had also formed Antichrist with Chris in 1996 so there was never any other vocalist in mind.

Rehearsals began in June 2006 after much discussion/drinking. Chris had not sung for a few months after disbanding Excarnated, and Gaz had not rehearsed with humans for well over 5 years. Despite this, things came together quite easily and recorded the debut release THE FOUR SEASONS IN MISERY in late 2006 (released early 2007). After a lengthy break, THE NULL FACTOR LAW was written and recorded. Initially intended for a 2007 release on lathe vinyl, the release was put on hold indefinitely. A reworked version was eventually released on digital.

Throughout 2008 and early 2009 another full-length album entitled TOTAL DISGUST FOR MANKIND was created. This album contains three filthy tracks of doom and death. The band then reconvened in late 2009 to work on two new tracks of doomed destruction. The band was then then put on hold for the rest of the year, during this time Chris completed the first full length album for his solo band Pervertum Obscurum. By mid 2011 a third full length was finally completed, and APOCRYPHAL DIRGE was unleashed.

After a lengthy demo process, the fourth album PROCESSION TO ANNIHILATION was finally released by the label Aesthetic Death in 2013. Soon after the lineup was expanded to include Nick from Asbestosisis on bass and Paul from Inverloch (ex-Disembowelment) on drums. This lineup was established specifically for the When Terror Unites Festival in 2014, but played further shows that year.

The band has remained dormant since the 2014 shows, but new music was slowly being prepared for another album. After many false starts, and lockdown issues, an EP was finally released in 2022, called WORLD DESTROYER. It is a taste of what is to come, and is far more noisy and chaotic than previous releases.

After almost ten years, a new album entitled
A CAVERNOUS DESCENT INTO FILTH was finally released. A continuation of the previous EP containing three tracks of filthy death/doom. This album was difficult to birth, and shows the band treading some new ground visually as well as musically. A video for the title track was also released prior to the release, another first for this band.

So now the band will retreat back into their cave to work on new material.
We will see you all in another ten years.
