Artist Biography Available in: 'K-Nitrate' began life in early 1993 with Graham Rayner and Steve Etheridge.
Their highly anticipated first album, 'Xenophobia' was released within months. With its fiercely political commentary of the first Gulf War, 'Xenophobia' pulled no punches with tracks like "Human Shield" and "Killer Religion".
'Xenophobia' was a superlative debut.
1996 saw the recruitment of guitarist Dan Waldman and the release of the 'Hyperphobia' EP. 'Hyperphobia' contained remixes of material from 'Xenophobia' and five new tracks that showcased the band's move to a more intense live sound.
Shortly after the release of 'Hyperphobia' both Etheridge and Waldman left 'K-Nitrate' to persue other projects, whilst Rayner continued alone.
During his involvement with side project, 'Tramazi', Rayner was introduced to programmer Christian Weber. The result of this musical union meant 'K-Nitrate' gigged extensively, whilst simultaneously providing remixes for various artists as time permitted.
