Scary German Guy was formed in 1998 in Long Island New York. The two founding members of the band were vocalist Mike Curley and bassist. Shortly thereafter they acquired the services of vocalist/guitarist Gary Foster and began to form what would eventually become their trademark sound, later dubbed "Horror Core" by a local producer. All that was left was to add the final pieces of the SGG puzzle. Enter guitarist Jason Rhoads and sampler/technical engineer Chris Klapak. The original 5 piece was now complete and writing and putting together SGG's first release entitled "For the Sake of Man".
