Caninus was a deathgrind band formed as a side project by Most Precious Blood guitarist Justin Brannan, Rachel Rosen, drummer Colin Thundercurry and two female pitbull terriers, Budgie and Basil.[1] They are currently signed to War Torn Records and have three releases, including a split with Hatebeak and a 7" split with death metal band Cattle Decapitation. In 2008 Richard Christy played the drums on an unknown number of songs for Caninus.[2]
On January 5, 2011, Basil, one of Caninus's pit-bulls, died. Basil had been diagnosed with a brain tumor and was euthanized.[3] The band has ended because of the dog's death.
