Thine

One of the most powerful forces in the goth metal underground, Thine stepped into the spotlight in the late '90s and continued to make waves throughout the next few years. It all started in 1996 when singer Alan, guitarist Paul, and drummer Dan came together due to their love of heavy music. Putting together the rough Journey's demo later that year, a member of Black Tears Records' staff heard the record and recommended them to be signed.

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.
