Take 3/5ths of Disembodied (Joel Andrew Johnson, Tara Lee Anderson, Justin James Kane), add a second guitarist (Charles, brother to Joel) and new vocalist (intitially Michael James Fisketti), and you get Martyr AD, one of Minneapolis' heaviest exports to date. Constant writing and practicing among the founders of Disembodied and the new musicians would result in their signing to Ferret Music, and the band's debut full-length, "The Human Condition in Twelve Fractions." While retaining various elements of the band's prior incarnation, Martyr AD would add speed, even more heaviness (if that's possible), technical precision, and probably some of the best vocals in hardcore to create something even better. The band has toured endlessly in support of its new album with the likes of The Haunted, Throwdown, and many others. In mid-2001, Martyr's drummer, Justin, stepped down from his duties, and in early-2002, the band signed with Victory Records. Later that year, Mike Fisketti was ousted from the band. hide
