* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Damian Leski is a giant of a man with a penchant for writing lyrics for Gorgasm that very well may just be even more disgusting than Wagner's own, in addition to having a particularly gurgly vocal style with Broken Hope. He's also known for being exceptionally friendly and laid-back in person.

* StartMyOwn: Shaun Glass did this with [=SOiL=], though it was originally supposed to be a side project until the band became too big to stay part-time. He would go on to do this again with Dirge Within.

Sometime in the 2000s, Wagner and the others began mulling over the possibility of a reunion, the hopes of which were very nearly dashed when Ptacek committed suicide in 2010; while distraught, Wagner was determined to make the reunion happen. It finally did in 2012, with Wagner and Glass (now out of [=SOiL=]) welcoming in Damian Leski (of Gorgasm fame) on vocals, along with Chuck Wepfer on lead guitar and Mike Miczek on drums. This reunion was kicked off by a deal with Century Media Records and a tour with Obituary, Decrepit Birth, Jungle Rot, and Encrust, followed by an appearance at Maryland Deathfest. ''Omen of Disease'', their reunion album, was released in September of 2013 and a tour with Deicide, Disgorge, and Necronomicon followed that was unfortunately marred by band conflict and a brutal attack by a man wielding a set of boxcutters in El Paso that put multiple fans in the hospital with serious injuries. The momentum was there, however, and the band was not sunk; indeed, 2014 has already brought a US tour with Oceano, Fallujah, Rivers of Nihil, and Kublai Khan, along with a European tour with Immolation. It's not quite known where things will head from there, but they seem positive enough.

It's not Immolation; the former was a [[TroubledProduction shitshow]], the latter was quite known where things will head from there, but they seem positive enough.successful. Numerous festival appearances also followed along with news of an upcoming album, though Glass and Wepfer left in December to focus on The Bloodline; [[Music/{{Disgorge}} Diego Soria]] and [[Music/{{Chimaira}} Matt Szlachta]] were their respective replacements.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Joe Ptacek.



* OneOfUs: Jeremy Wagner is a huge horror fan in addition to being a published writer.



* PromotedFanboy: Damian Leski and Mike Miczek.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Part of why they originally broke up. The person at Metal Blade Europe who was supposed to be handling them did not like their music at all and kept them from touring there, and the label support was underwhelming at best in general.



* TroubledProduction: ''Grotesque Blessings''. The ejection of Stanek and departure of Glass had thrown everything into disarray, there were three different bassists on the album (Griffin had also handled some of the bass tracks) because two of them left during the recording process, and the band had been thrown off of Metal Blade due to problems with management. The album got great reviews and resulted in several solid tours, but the dysfunction that had started around then was already starting to build up to completely unmanageable levels.

It was also around this time that Glass formed the nu-metal act [=SOiL=] as a side project with three of the members of Oppressor, though it was still just an informal side venture at this point rather than a career. The band also found themselves leaving Metal Blade sometime between 1997 and 1999; it was also around this time that [[Music/DyingFetus Duane Timlin]] joined to replace Stanek before leaving in 1999 and being replaced by Larry [=DeMumbrum=], who also left, kicking off a brief revolving door of drummers. Glass, meanwhile, left in 1998 when [=SOiL=] began picking up, and a similarly volatile set of bassists came and went, with most of them having a song or two recorded on ''Grotesque Blessings''; of these, Brian Hobbie of Internal Bleeding was the only one who lasted. Ptacek himself left in 2000 and was briefly replaced by Scott Creekmore, but the writing was on the wall Unable to keep a solid lineup and with most of their momentum dead, Wagner and Griffin decided to call it a day and went on to pursue their own endeavors.
