Prahfitz Ov Inzaniti, or P.O.I. for short, was formed in 1999 by Joseph Crook and Arthur McDonald, in the city of Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States.
Their first full album entitled "Covet Thy Ak" was released on August 1st 2001, and was a mixture of a previous demo tape made in 1999 entitled "May I Axe You?", and a couple of new added tracks. Prominent tracks from these early days include "Attempted Suicide" and "Nothing". This album was recorded with very crude technology, including a karaoke machine/cassette tape recorder hooked up to a PC.
