Floor was formed in 1992 by Steve Brooks (guitar), Anthony Vialon (bass), and Betty Monteavaro (drums). Jeff Sousa became the drummer in late 1993, at which time Steve and Anthony switched to two low–tuned guitars with no bassist. Early influences included Melvins and Godflesh, later developing their own sound of melodic, pop–infused doom. Several vinyl–only 7" EPs were released before their first break in 1996. The band reformed with a new line–up for one show in 1997 with Henry Wilson on drums and practiced only occasionally until 2001. 2002 saw the release of their first full–length album, self–titled 'Floor,' before splitting in 2003 for good.
