A band a day...A Band Called Pain


This Bay Area band is BAD ASS!

Allen Richardson (Vocals)
Shawn Bivens (Guitar)
Bryan L.B. Dean (otherwise known as "Dark Kent") (Bass)
Tony Providence (Drums)

Brought up on the influences of Kiss, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Pantera, A Band Called Pain plays a brand of groove-oriented grunge with elements of rock and roll and funk and soul.

Listeners may hear Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Living Colour in their sound as well.

Their debut record Broken Dreams spawned a soundtrack song. "Holy", my favorite song of theirs made the soundtrack for Saw II.

They're currently finishing up recording their second album called Beautiful Gun, which is likely to be as explosive as the title indicates.

As a familiar song states "I'd rather feel 'pain' than nothing at all".

Here's a video for their song Pieces and a live performance of their song Hellbound.
