|Well, boring as
it might sound - here's all you wanted (?) to know about our homepage,
but were too ashamed to ask. Or maybe we should see this as an internal
rgte-page, where we keep track of all the changes to the page? The
latest updates to the page can be found on the news
Let there be homepages
Our very first homepage wasn't even our homepage. It was a premature
epitaph made by Pierre of Braindead
e-gore-zine. We don't know when this site first saw the light of
day, but it was later (late '99) redone to be the first official
The first official homepage - made by
Pierre of Braindead e-zine in France
Our first idea for a new layout -
After the re-release of "Effortless Regurgitation..."
we were beginning to think about getting rid of the old come.to-address
in favor of something with less pop-up ads. Said and done... we
got ourselves www.regurgitate.net and started planning the new homepage.
The first try didn't look to different from the previous one and
was quickly abandoned, in favour of "the white corporate look"
- we simply didn't want another typical metal-band page... black
The first version of www.regurgitate.net, launced in March
One of the early attempts at making the page more visually
As much as we liked the no bullshit approach to the homepage, we
(at least Urban) still wanted to upgrade it to something a bit more
"artistic" - the white one was about as visually exciting
as a stock book. Well, it stood out from most other grind/metal
pages, so it worked the way we intended.
No more mister white page!
When Urban started working on a new look for the site it was only
planned to be a small facelift, rather than a brand new site, but
after a bunch of rejected new interfaces it became clear that the
old stuff had to go. Out with the corporate look and in with the
brushes and inkbottles, inspired by the designs made by Jonathan
Canady for our releases on Relapse - especially the CD version of
The first "brushstroke
and inkspot"-design also echoed of the old white page, but
that soon changed to the grey and purple that was to come. After
some 20 try-outs with different sizes colours, fonts etc regurgitate.net
version 2 turned out to be quite different from the previous ones.
One of many tests with
brushstrokes and inkspots
Regurgitate.net version 2. Launched in September 2002.
The new homepage don't just look different, there are (or will be)
lots of more stuff on it as well. We're looking hard for all kinds
of flyers, posters, mp3s, wallpapers, winamp skins, live photos...
etc. You name it. For instance... the new site has twice the amount
of mp3 songs, and more will come. Other new things on the page are
the "member pages"
where we also have up-to-date lists of our current favourites, be
it CDs, movies or drinks.
The site will continue to change and to grow... so don't hesitate
to let us know if there's something you think should be added to
New design 2005
After two and a half years the design started to feel old
again, so something had to be done to correct that. Also after four
years of bright(ish) colors it started to feel like a good idea
to make the new design a darker one.
New design May 19th, 2005. Darker than the previous ones.
Not much else was changed on the homepage except the look, so it
can't be seen as a major update to site. A completely new site will
be project for the future.
