Post-Life Disorder was conceived in late 1996 by Anthony (Antz) Palmer, Julian Turpin and Rudi Weber, a mongrel hybrid of downtuned moody sludge and noisy thrash metal.

Over the coming years the band became regulars on the Brisbane circuit - playing with bands of all styles of hard and heavy music. Live music venue 'The Chelsea' caught wind of the hard-working consistency of PLD, and became the band's official booking agents.

The band then released an EP titled 'Self-Operate-Lobotomy' in 1999, and the song 'Dawn of a New Madness' caught the ear of Costa Zoulio, then programmer of Triple J radio metal show 'Three Hours of Power' and was included on the 'Full metal Racket' compilation.

In 2003 the band was experimenting with new sounds and styles, and wrote a bunch of new songs which were recorded at Modern Music Studio. The production unfortunately didn't have the same intensity as the EP, but still captured the essence of the band - being a creative outlet for inner turmoil via masses of volume and distortion. The eponymous debut LP was released that year on Ward69Records and distributed nationally through MGM.

PLD was busy playing live and touring for those years from 97-2004. Supports for the likes of Entombed, Kittie, Destruction, Skinlab and more, along with appearances at festivals including Metal for the Brain, Overcranked, 4ZZZ Market day and Big Day Out, secured PLD's spot as one of Australia's premiere Metal bands.

Around the middle of 00’s the band became inactive so the members could focus on their personal lives. At the beginning of the new decade in 2010 Antz and Rudi took on a few comeback shows with the help of some friends. The response was overwhelming and reignited their passion for exorcising demons and thrashing eardrums, and are preparing for a new round of live performances in mid 2024.

'Post-Life Disorder’s driving rhythm perfectly compliments the vox and guitar. And doesn’t that guitar sound thick, crunchy and loud. This is what gives Brisbane metal some cred.' - Nicola Mortan, Time Off magazine

'PLD have their own sound, are focused and would scare Page Hamilton if he saw them ... you must check em out.' - DM, Shmoozer magazine

'... volume and precision are welded together into a punishment ritual of epic proportion.' - Lance Sinclair, Rave magazine
