Dragbody / Contention Of The Orders

City: Orlando
Years Active: 1995 - 2002
Type Of Music: Hardcore/Metal
Myspace or Website:

Contention of the Orders is Dragbody before they chose the name Dragbody. Check it out, the demo rules.

From the Dragbody Myspace:

dragbody rocked it loud and crazy style from 1995 - 2002. we released three 7" records (all of which were later combined into one cd - an inheritance of detriment), one split 7" record (with burial ground), one split 12" record (with crucible), and one full length cd (flip the kill switch). obviously, there are no more dragbody shows and no more new dragbody records as we are no longer a band. however, i believe our old records are still available. please get in touch if you have trouble locating a copy of the the record you desire. please look for shows and records by scott white and mike rosen's new band, railsplitter ( and tom's new band, cardinale ( also, pick up a copy of twilight songs by venusian skyline because scott poyer plays drums on it. thanks for reading this.

You can still order Dragbody "An Inheritance of Detriment" here:

Excellent post! I love Dragbody!! They only played Portland once, and it was on incredibly late notice. They got added to an emo house show, and I swear all of the backpback emo kids looked like they were pissing their pants when Dragbody played.
