Cat Rapes Dog started out in the mid 80s with some demo releases, and made their debut with the EP "Columna Vertebralis" in 1989, becoming the first hard Swedish electronic act. Annelie Bertilsson joined the band for their 12" "Fundamental" in 1990 and soon became a regular member of the group. The group reached a peak with their "Moosehair Underwear" which was mostly mixed and mastered by Jürgen Engler and Chris Lietz at Atom H (Die Krupps HQ).
During the creation of the follow-up album "Biodegradable" in 1995 the band went through some turmoil when singer Joel quit unexpectedly. They were in the process of integrating Laszlo Hago as their new lead vocalist but he did not work out, thus the band went on hiatus for a few years. "Biodegradable" saw the arrival of guitarist Jonas Awertoft that has become more or less a regular member of the band since then. An EP called "Fuck Nature" was released with more unreleased tracks from the "Biodegradable"-era (thus still including some of the vocal work of Joel).
In 1998 the band returned with a new regular singer John Wreibo Lindqwister and the album "The Secrets Of God". Gone were much of the distorted vocals but the guitars made their appearance well noted still. They soon followed up this album with the album "People As Prey" in 1999. The band continued touring to support these two last albums. After 14 years they are back with and album in September 2013.
