eyond Within was formed in the spring of 2002 by founding members Chris Finlay (guitars) and Paul Larochelle (drums). After customary line-up changes, the band settled on the remaining members of: Todd Pidgeon (vocals), Dave St-Louis (bass) and Pat Malette (guitar). The act then worked relentlessly for the next three years sculpting and perfecting their unique sound, which could be somewhat described as European-influenced melodic death/thrash. Persistent practice has greatly improved the skills of each individual member, making the band's presence more intense and unified than ever.
Beyond Within has played over 100 live shows, sharing thestage with notable acts such as: Cryptopsy, Behemoth, Decapitated,Kataklysm, Skinless, All That Remains, 3 Inches of Blood, Throwdown, Necronomicon, Neuraxis, Quo Vadis, Beneath the Massacre, The End, Ion Dissonance, Winter Solstice, Misery Index, Despised Icon and Anvil. In 2006 their album Eternal Pestillence would hit the market.
