Faith No Man

Faith. No Man was created n 1979 by Mike Morris and Wade Worthington. Drummer extraordinare Mike Bordin was recruited next followed much later by Bill Gould. (To go back even further, the original name was 'Sharp Young Men' as a piss-take on all the 'elegant' 80s groups at the time.) Originally Morris proposed 'Faith In No Man' but after much back and forth, Bordin rightfully suggested 'Faith. No Man'. Morris became very hard on Gould which eventually caused a rift in the band. Worthington left the group because of the tensions and because he felt unsatisfied with his own contributions.

Eagles of Death Metal

Eagles of Death Metal are an alternative/hard rock band formed in Palm Desert, California in 1998. They consist of Jesse Hughes (vocals, guitar) and Josh Homme (drums). Eagles of Death Metal is the embodiment of all fuzzed out, overdriven guitar rock to shake your booty to. Don't look for deeper meanings or avant-garde synthesizer tricks, because these Eagles are strictly business. On their first album, Jesse "The Devil" Hughes tackles the subjects of dancing, dancing, speed...

Alice in Chains

Alice in Chains was one of the most influential American rock bands of the early '90s. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of metal and the gloomy strains of post-punk, the band developed a bleak, nihilistic sound that balanced grinding hard rock with subtly textured acoustic numbers. They were hard enough for metal fans, yet their dark subject matter and punky attack placed them among the front ranks of the Seattle-based grunge bands. While this dichotomy helped the group soar to multi-platinum status with their second album, 1992's Dirt, it also divided them.
