The history of Bestial Deform started in the end of the year 1990. The singing guitarist Kirill Ulanenkov, who gathered around himself the bassist Sergey Utkin, the guitarist Andrey Shnurov and the drum player Victor Kuzmichov, initiated the project.

In 1992 they recorded the debut demo Worship to madness. Quite soon the quartet started giving concerts in different clubs of St.Petersburg. This experience allowed them to have a successful tour throughout Ukraine together with Great Sorrow. Back from the tour Bestial Deform took part in a grandiose metal festival Baltic Death Zone 1 with Great Sorrow, Koma, Tula smiths Graveside, Estonian Agressor etc. Soon the inner disagreements in the group caused the complete change of its members. The bassist Sergey Zelenyuk (ex-Mecca), the drum player Michael Lind (ex-Great Sorrow) and the guitarist Dmitriy Ivanov took the place of Sergey Utkin, Andrey Shnurov and Victor Kuzmichov. In 1993 Bestial Deform released their second demo Malebranche and filmed its episode For the Great Evil. The cassettes were being actively distributed throughout the country, while the group continued playing on different stages. Next work Together We ll Destroy the World was released at the beginning of 1994. In summer of the same year Bestial Deform participated in the second Baltic Death Zone, where Polish Dead Infection were headliners.

In October 1994 the group recorded their next mignon The Mystic and left for Moscow and Smolensk to give concerts.

The year 1995 was marked by a big festival in Kharkov where such Ukrainian giants as Lazareth (Lvov), North Storm (Sumi), Nocturnal Mortum, Corps took part. The festival was followed by the work on the fifth album Bellum Contra Omnes. It was released on the independent label RAE Music. From 1997 to 1999 Bestial Deform were actually inactive because of the disagreements, searching of the new forms and preparing new material. The complete change of the members took place in the end of this period.

In the end of 1999 Kirill Ulanenkov returns to the path of war and gives concerts to the accompaniment of a drum-machine. Soon the guitarist Timur Madyaev and the bassist Alexander Petrov come to the group. In 2000 Bestial Deform participates in Banzai festival together with Virgilia Mortum (Estonia), Ashen Light and Rossomahaar (Moscow), Burial Shades (Pskov), Azeroth and the others. Having given a number of concerts presenting new programme The Second Coming, Bestial Deform visits Belarus playing with Polish Decapitated and local Exumator, Rasta and Bleeding. The tour was followed by a number of big concerts in St. Petersburg and region including famous in the NorthWest festivals Friday, the 13th and Banzai-fest.

Work at new album The second coming takes a good deal of time and efforts. Finally the album is released in 2004. It is followed by single We go to kill (spring 2005). This single is a kind of prequel to the next album Stop the Christianity! (2005). The album receives very good ratings and gets positive reviews in different publications. The band films two music videos: Jesus is Dead and Non-human Low. 2007 is marked by the release of two-song single Aut Caesar, aut nihil.

Throughout its history BESTIAL DEFORM has played numerous shows at different venues including local and international festivals. The band played a shitload of shows in Russia, Ukraine and Germany between 2009 and 2010. The band shared stage with such bands as: Dead Infection (PL), Decapitated (PL), Vader (PL), Vesania (PL), Napalm Death (UK), Hypnoz (CZ), Fleshless (CZ), Deus Inversus (DE) and others. In 2014 comes the next "cluster of dark energy" EP "Severed on pieces", which is a sort of preview of the new album, which is ready! Also in 2014 and 2015 have been re-released "Bellum contra omnes" and "Together we ll destroy the world", respectively. BESTIAL DEFORM does not stand alone and is not trying to become an extreme music icon. However the band follows its own unique inimitable direction there is no place for another band on this path. Multifaced death-machine blazing through everything on its way, a battering ram crushing the gates of sanity, an espringal blowing away the walls, uncovering the flesh of cities and sensible beings, a sadist savoring convulsions and agony.
