Japanese punks Envy debuted with the brief bursts of psychotic hardcore of the mini-album Breathing and Dying In This Place (1996) After From Here To Eternity (1998), however, the mini-album Angel's Curse Whispered In The Edge Of Despair (1999) introduced a different band, a chamber ensemble bent on exploiting and expanding every nuance of their music instead of simply bombarding the listener with nasty sounds. Hence the ten-minute Unrepairble Gentleness.

All The Footprints You've Ever Left And The Fear Expecting Ahead (2001) was still fundamentally a hardcore album, although it ended again with a lengthy tour de force, Your Shoes and the World to Come; but A Dead Sinking Story (2003) definitely embraced the post-rock aesthetic of ebbing and flowing atmosphere and much more convoluted evolution, notably in the three longer pieces: Chain Wandering Deeply, Unrepairable Gentleness and especially the 13-minute A Will Remains in the Ashes. Their music had become an exercise in building exhausting psychological tension.

Insomniac Doze (2006) added the ten-minute Crystallize and the 15-minute The Unknown Glow to their main canon.

Recitation (2010) marked a low point of inspiration, except for the seven-minute 0 and 1.
