- Release Notes
BORN FROM PAIN was founded in the early summer of '97, as one of the early
European bands to play a crossover/metalcore brand of heavy music. BORN FROM
PAIN grew up in a musical environment of mid-80's Bay Area and German trash
metal and NY hardcore, 90's Florida and Birmingham death metal, NYC crossover
and US/European metalcore. Bands like Merauder, Stigmata, Earth Crisis, All
Out War, Bolt Thrower, Obituary, Integrity, Testament, Slayer, early Agnostic
Front and Crumbsuckers were of infinite influence on members as the fuse was
lit that summer..and for many years to come!
In the near 10 years of their existence BORN FROM PAIN have been mostly on
the road and working hard to get noticed. Getting noticed started to happen
fast. After releasing their first mcd "Immortality" in 1999, the band quickly
followed up with their first full-length cd "Reclaiming The Crown" in 2000.
Numerous support and headline shows followed. 2002 saw the release of the
band's second full-length "Sands Of Time" that received tremendous feedback
everywhere and got the band to a new level. Again, extensive touring with the
likes of Hatebreed, Madball and Resistence Tour, to name a few, followed. The
year 2004 saw the band embark on overseas tours in the US and Japan. Also the
attention from bigger labels was drawn and in the year 2005 the follow-up to
"Sands Of Time", "In Love With The End" was released on Metal Blade Records.
1,5 Years of non-stop touring alongside bands like e.g. Hatebreed, Napalm
Death, Six Feet Under followed, just like appearances at festivals like
Wacken Open Air, With Full Force Open Air, Waldrock Festival, Pressure Fest,
Hell Fest and numerous other bigger and smaller festivals all over Europe, as
well as touring South America.
Over the years the sound of BORN FROM PAIN has always kept it's trademarks
and backbone intact; brutal groove, murderous fast riffing and a feeling for
the most aggressive breakdowns. Never giving in to trends that came and went
in heavy music over the years. BORN FROM PAIN has always felt that spewing
lyrics that represent feelings of anger, frustration, melancholy and social
criticism, works best over riffs that hit you like a steamroller at full
speed. The band strongly signals a feeling of stand-up, honest, straight
forward authenticity to the world in a stagnant metal and hardcore scene,
which the band feels is ever so important in music nowadays.
BORN FROM PAIN are not, and never were, in this to win a prize for trendiest
or coolest band, but to express feelings harbored by many in our scene,
expressing the anger towards daily life, social unrest, emotional hardship
and the murder of the world as we know it. Negativity, anger and frustration
are feelings that no one can hold back in this day and age, but we can try
and turn it around to make things better at least on a personal level.
After singer Che left the band regrouped and came out stronger once again
with original band member (and former BFP bassist) Rob on the microphone
Franssen (formerly singer for bands like Feeding The Fire, Bloodsport, Wheel
Of Progress and Backdraft). New drummer Roy (ex-37 Stabwoundz) replaced the
nerve damaged Roel who was not allowed to drum anymore for the upcoming years
and Andy (ex-The Setup) took Rob’s spot on bass. With a new vocal style that
has a more pissed off and aggressive edge BORN FROM PAIN adds a new dimension
to the BORN FROM PAIN sound.
In the year 2008 the world is more than ever in a state of disarray and
chaos. The powers that be do not seem to care about the people they claim
responsibility for or feed their wealth. Nature is raped. People are mislead.
Constantly pounding into us with a sense of uncontrollable greed. Crisis
after crisis, year after year, day after day… Chaos unleashed on humanity to
create new order and give a false sense of security in a world that is slowly
turned into a prison. Semi-fascist laws are passed under the veil of
terrorism and world peace to legally control what needs to be controlled: the
power of the people. This world is turning into a battleground…in many ways.
People are pushed to survival in world that is structurally getting more grim
and vicious. Where will this end? What does all of this mean? The signs of
times to come. The writings on the wall. Prepare for the hour of chaos!
Survival state of mind!
