"some music was meant to stay underground..."


From: Arlington, TX, United States
Last Known Status: Active


This is extreme energy and explosive music, GRAIN live is something to experience. Comprised of David Jarvis (vocals), Nick Stolz (guitar), Rick Nagler (drums) and Henry "Hank" Jarvis (bass), the pioneers of scrap metal have been rekindling the torch of the power groove for the past five years, and are still as prolific as ever. David's sickass words coupled with the power groove of Rick, the six-string assault by Nick and Hank's rhythmic bass prowess and drinking ability have provided audiences with an adrenaline powered, emotional, and sometimes violent experience. Their amazing stage show of all out bone-breaking, ball busting and chest pounding groove deliver a site and sound that is literally a knock out punch for the faint of heart. Few beg to differ that they took the feel of metal to a new degree. Witness the rebirth of the underground! The new album is on sale now! Buy that shit, burn that shit, pass that shit.

This is a major victory for the underground scene because this will allow the next Project Independent compilation CD comprised of top unsigned U.S. metal acts to finally reach the masses and yet not sacrifice the original appeal of its grass roots approach: to find the best of the best burgeoning talents working hard to make a name for themselves directly out of the hottest club venues in cities from coast to coast . I recently conducted this roundtable interview with Jeff Totten himself, along with Florida area promoter J-Rock of The Rock Solid Pressure Showcase, Erik Ulrich of I.R.A.T.E, Greg Bowman of Level Nine Entertainment and Rick of the Texas-based thrash metal band Grain to get a deeper perspective from all of these forces involved on the good, the bad and the ugly of this impressive band search program.
