The guys quickly made a name for themselves playing VFW Halls on the weekends and releasing a debut EP that sold out at local retailers.

After some brief regional tours the band signed to the Artery Foundation for management and then signed on as the first band on Artery Recordings, a joint partnership with Artery Management and Razor & Tie Entertainment. Chelsea Grin released it's debut, Desolation of Eden, in Feb 2010, it sold over 20,000 copies; garnered a spot on the coveted Alternative Press "AP Recommends" column; and was voted #2 in the September 2010 AP Readers Chart.
