Formed in Iowa City early 1998 by the two bassists, Burmese soon relocated to Oakland California spewing their particular blend of power violence, power electronics, death industrial sludge and high-speed thrashnoise infused with grindcore blasts and much feedback.

They expanded their line-up with another drummer in 2002 making it dual-bass & dual-drums.

Still in the Bay Area, today they are a six-piece consisting of Mike, Mark, Jay, Tissue, Matt, & Mikey.
