Bottomless Pit was formed in the fall of 2005 by erstwhile Silkworm members Tim Midgett and Andy Cohen.

Their longtime friends Chris Manfrin (Seam) and Brian Orchard (.22) complete the quartet.

2007 found the group playing "their blues" - soulful, emotionally intense, and often transcendent postpunk that is as inviting as it is bracing.

"Hammer of the Gods" is the first Bottomless Pit album. It is the first release from New Jersey's Comedy Minus One records. It was released November 6, 2007.
