Sourvein were originally from Wilmington, North Carolina, USA (aka Cape Fear). Back then they were more of a (self described) "MDC meets My War-era Black Flag meets the Melvins". In 1994 Sourvein did the "30 Days of Roadkill" USA tour with Anal Cunt, Eyehategod, The Candy Snatchers and Buzzov•en. This spawned a split 7-inch with Buzzov•en. In 1996, singer T-Roy joined Buzzov•en on samples and back-up vocals, which he did till they split up in 1998.
