Ogle and Rosenthal formed the band Thanatos in the mid 1980s, releasing a cassette. There would not be another track recorded until a morose, dirge-like cover of K.C. and the Sunshine Band's "Thats The Way (I Like It)" appeared on the Projekt compilation "From Across This Grey Land 3". Ogle and Rosenthal would release the band's first full length, "This Endless Night Inside" in 1993 to be followed two years later with the doom-laden "An Embassy to Gaius."
At this point the band became a live act enlisting guitarist William Tucker (Pigface, Chris Connelly Band, Ministry, Foetus and others) and bassist Eric Polcyn (Godbullies). The band toured the USA and Canada on three short tours and recorded the final Thanatos record, "Blisters" (1997, which was primarily a collaboration between Ogle and Tucker. In 1999 Tucker committed suicide at the age of 38 and Ogle removed himself from music, releasing only one disc of previously recorded material, under the name Illegalteenagebikini, in 2003. Ogle also ran Precipice Recordings releasing compilations and releases from bands such as Claire Voyant, Sunday Munich and Trance to the Sun.
Thanatos reformed in 2005 but has only played a handful of shows in Chicago since that time. Although according to the Thanatos band website, The band's "The Exterminating Angel"  LP was released via Bandcamp April 23, 2013.
