The band formed with Lou Orenstein, Diego Ponsa, Reggie Barret, Steve Morris and Gil Bitton. Bassist Zelick joined the group, followed by Joel Suarez and Eli Parker. New York-based company, "Concrete Management" (Pantera, Ministry, Anthrax), signed the band, where they opened for such bands as the Foo Fighters, Static-X, and Megadeth. They were later signed to DV8/Columbia Records, and released two major albums.
Their first major album Evolve was released in 2001, and featured more of a rap-metal and nu metal sound. The band released a follow up album, Songs for the Restless in 2003, but the band featured more of a post grunge, straight rock sound, without rapping. They played at the Ozzfest Tour in 2003 in support of the album and opened for bands such as Korn, Chevelle and Marilyn Manson.
The band parted ways with DV8/Columbia in April 2004, and at the time were working on the recording of five new tracks. These demos are available for download on Broadjam.com.  A year and a half later, in November 2005, they announced on their MySpace blog that a new album was close to being finished. In February 2006, they announced they were performing at a contest in their hometown of Florida, but no further news on the album.
Unfortunately, about a year later the band finally made another statement, on January 1, 2007, that they were disbanding due to inner turmoil.
However, Endo would return in late 2012 to play several shows in their native Florida. We are Back!
