Salt the Wound was founded on September 11, 2001 as a duo by
their original drummer, James Anthony Agrippe, and guitar player Mike
Kawkabany. The group continued on as duo until 2003, where additional
members joined and assumed the requirements of a full band. Vocalist
Kevin Schafer was welcomed during this year, which then shortly led to
these three recruiting Abe Zieleniec as the band's bassist and Jake
Scott as another guitar player.
