The duo put out a number of demo tapes between 1988 - 1990 until they were finally signed to the now defunct Celtic Circle Productions (C.C.P.) recording label and released their first full-length CD album Brainstorming in 1993.
Their music consists of gloomy synthesizers mixed with abrasive dance-beats, overlayed with distorted vocals and the occasional audio sample taken from various horror films. The musical result is a style akin to Skinny Puppy, that has inspired many other groups in the electro-industrial and gothic genres.
In 1994, after what looked like a promising career, yelworC unexpectedly split up, with van Reich heading off to form the more experimental sounding amGod ("dogma" backwards) and cutting one album Half Rotten and Decayed under the C.C.P. label. Devin fought and successfully kept the rights to use the name yelworC.
For the past few years, yelworC's material could only be found through peer-to-peer internet sharing. However, in 2004, Devin released a new studio album entitled Trinity; the first release from yelworC in over ten years (although one or two of the songs appeared on compilations). The album, containing some material composed during the late 1990s, is based on Dante's journey through Hell as told in The Divine Comedy. It also features a guest appearance by Dennis Ostermann of In Strict Confidence on the song Vexilla Regis Inferni.
Out via Minuswelt on October 19 is yelworC's "Icolation". The 17-track release comes after the July 2007 release of the "Eclosion" EP.
