Background and impact[edit]

Vomitorial Corpulence started in 1992 as a vision of Guitarist/Vocalist Paul Green, but didn't get moving until 1993, when he hired on Bassist Mark Hamilton and Drummer Alexander O'Neil.[6] O'Neil quit in 1995 and was replaced by Christopher Valentine.[6] The band recorded their debut album, Skin Stripper, before the band went on hiatus for the first time.[3][6] In December 2001, Green moved to Minnesota and married Maria, who became the bands Bassist, and hired on Ziggy Peters and Johnathan Kellerman on Vocals.[3][6] Due to lack of a Drummer, the band went on a second hiatus.[6] In August 2006, Green started the band back up with Hamilton and Valentine.[6] The band ended in 2008.
