Reprobation was formed in south suburban Chicago by guitarist Rob Whitworth & drummer Mike Rees. Bassist Chuck Herrholz later joined and the band was eventually rounded out by vocalist Shawn Connors.

In May 2000 Shawn decided to switch to guitar & vocals and the band added new vocalist Mike Crothers, bringing the band a new dual vocal/dual guitar lineup. With the new lineup complete Reprobation's first official release “The Colour of Gore” was born.
