Bassist Fleischmann later returned to the fold and the quintet went on to release a series of demos and songs on compilations before VOD released their seminal 7” record, Still (released on Striving for Togetherness Records) in 1996. This album includes the original versions of the songs Through My Eyes and D.T.O.
Around the time of the recording of that EP, the band was invited to participate in N.Y.H.C., a documentary on the New York hardcore scene. An in-depth interview was conducted with the band and two performances were captured; one in Newark, NJ and the other on their home turf of Northport, Long Island. The Northport show can be seen on the back cover of their 7”.
The Still EP attracted a strong underground following, particularly within the Long Island’s hardcore community. This was sufficient to earn the band a major label record deal. VOD’s self-titled debut was released in 1996, on Roadrunner Records’ subsidiary label, Supersoul. It was lauded by many old-school hardcore aficionados for its mixture of innovative sounds built on traditional hardcore roots.
The album Imprint (released on Roadrunner Records), followed the band’s self-titled two years later. This album received ambivalent reviews: many old VOD fans disliked their new creative direction, whereas many of the fans that Imprint had attracted appreciated the band’s seemingly innovative sound. Imprint created a permanent rift between Vision of Disorder and some longtime fans who couldn’t get past the band’s mutated sound and the “raw” production values that their major label second record boasted.
After touring in support of Imprint, Vision of Disorder became relatively inconspicuous within the heavy music spectrum. However, they eventually returned to the public eye, divested of Roadrunner Records and announced their plans to release For the Bleeders, a compendium of 9 demo songs that VOD re-recorded specifically for this record. For the Bleeders was released in 1999 on independent label, Go Kart Records.
Staying true with their desire to explore what they were capable of musically, Vision of Disorder released the southern rock-influenced album, From Bliss to Devastation, released on TVT Records in 2001. Using their own signature musical ingredients in conjunction with musical elements reminiscent of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains, The band’s TVT album debut was ultimately a commercial failure. The fans’ reception was lukewarm as the old fans who withstood Vision of Disorder’s approach with Imprint were even less impressed with this effort, and the fans who were introduced to VOD through their second record were indifferent towards FBTD’s new and uncharacteristic sound.
Apparently frustrated by a lack of record company support from both Roadrunner and TVT Records, Vision of Disorder went on an extended hiatus in 2002, and eventually disbanded, as singer Williams and guitarist Kennedy formed the touring and recording metalcore band bloodsimple.
VOD reunited briefly in order to play a 3-song “mini-set” during a September 24th show with bloodsimple. and Karnov (drummer Brendon Cohen and bassist Mike Fleischmann’s current musical ensemble). The response to the set was positive enough for the band to play a full reunion set at 2006’s Super Bowl of Hardcore in Manhattan.
