Ryan Butler (guitar)
Ryan started his music life pretty young and played 
just about every instrument in the orchestra. Later, he 
picked up bass guitar and played with quite a few 
people.  His first feat was the widely popular (haha) 
punk band, Richard Cranium, started in 1991.  In 1993 
he joined a heavily Rorschach-influenced band, 
Withdrawn, who then changed their sound to a more emo- 
violence style.  Withdrawn also changed their name to 
Lyburnum before recording a demo. Lyburnum also 
recorded one song for the Amnesia compilation on 
Ebullition Records. Lyburnum did a short west- coast 
tour, playing several times with Portraits of Past.  At 
the ending days of Lyburnum in 1994, Ryan and some 
friends started the doommetal/hardcore band, 
Wellington. Widely unpopular in Arizona until their 
last show, Wellington gained fans everywhere else.  In 
1995, Wellington continued a successful west-coast tour 
despite Suppression unable to tour with them (due to an 
exploding van). Wellington also did a west-coast tour 
with Unruh in 1996.

Fetus, played one show, and spawned Unruh.  Ryan was 
also in Unruh for the five year duration.
