Eso-Charis was originally called "Elliot". After about two years of playing shows, the band changed their name because of other bands using the name Elliot. "Eso charis" in Greek translates to "within or inside grace".
In late 1997, the band recorded their first and only |full-length album with Bruce Fitzhugh of Living Sacrifice. The album was first produced independently, but was soon after leased to Day-Glo Records of Stockholm, Sweden.
Later on, production of the album moved to Solid State Records, the same label as Living Sacrifice.
