Jeff quit in May to focus on his band The Lucky Nothings. Dave & Necro in the meanwhile worked on an experimental black metal EP HEATHEN STORM. Necro unimpressed with the music and sick with mono, lost interest and quit. He left DMD in charge.
Dave released both Dead At Gettysburg and Heathen Storm in September 2002. In early 2003, Dave talked to the former guitarist Jeff about recording Coffin Born again. It worked. In March 2003, Jeff and Dave recorded the Crush The Lifeless Spawn demo. This time it wasn't as joking, and it sounded a lot more serious.
Due to the success of Crush, CB recruited two new members - Jim Fuzz (from Hardcore band THE FUZZ) on bass, and Devin Klein (from Only Child) on vocals. A show was planned but got cancelled, and there were some recorded material, but nothing continued. There was a long silence from Coffin Born for awhile because Jeff, Jim, and Devin had all gone to college. In 2004, a bootleg was found in Necroblaster's archives of a 2002 Coffin Born show during the Heathen Storm sessions.
This bootleg is called I Love Church. Other than the discovery of the bootleg, Coffin Born had died in 2004. 5 long years of silence. In February 2009, Death Metal Dave, re-edited the older tracks, and worked on a greatest hits compilation.
It was titled VIOLATION OF THE DEAD, and it was officially released on August 11, 2009. In 2011, after a year of more silence, Jeff finally got in contact with Dave to talk about bringing back Coffin Born for a new recording. Dave agreed and the 2 are currently working on a new Coffin Born demo, hopefully going to be released some time this year! Read more on Last.fm.
