Reptilian Death came into existence in May 2001 as a solo project of the Demonstealer (Of Demonic Resurrection fame).The project was meant to be a grindcore/death metal project. At the end of May 2001 Reptilian Death released its 1st recording which was a collection of 5 songs called "5 Easy Ways To Murder Someone" with each song representing a different method of murder. The songs were a mix of death metal and grindcore but contained the unusual element of humor which gave the whole concept a sort of spoof feel. After this release the project took a back seat until November 2001 which was when Reptilian Death turned from a solo project into a full fledged band after Husain joined as the bassist and Jaivir joined as guitarist and The Demonstealer took over drums and vocal duties. The band prepared itself with 2 new songs "No Way To Die" and "The 2nd Coming Of Evil" and traveled to Bangalore City to play its 1st live show at The National Law Schools event "Strawberry Fields". Sadly the show never happened and Reptilian Death ended up doing an acoustic death metal set at Planet M due to distortion not being allowed.
