Born From Pain

BiografieBORN 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.

With BORN FROM PAIN´s newest effort "WAR", the band has set out to deliver a devastating blow built on murderous grooving and fast paced riffs and heaviness, killer breakdowns and a pinch of melody, ever so subtle, as a massive foundation for a non-interpretable message of social criticism, emotional disarray and the importance of an iron will in the year 2006..and many to come.

BORN FROM PAIN are ready to rumble in a world that´s relentless.

BORN FROM PAIN really lived up to their name and went through a difficult time with line up-changes over and over. But finally they got everything sorted out, wrote a couple of songs and recorded “Survival”, which turned out to be another excellent record. Now-vocalist Rob and guitar player Dom told about the past year, the new record and what hardcore means to them.

BORN FROM PAIN sind zweifellos eine der erfolgreichsten Metalcore-Bands, die zur Zeit rumlaufen. Man könnte sie sogar als Mitbegründer des momentan boomenden Genres bezeichnen. Was Sänger Che dazu sagt und wie es bei den Holländern weitergehen wird, beantwortete er in gewohnt freundlicher, bescheidener Art.


In Love With The End - Cover
BORN FROM PAIN haben unbestritten mitgeholfen, den Metalcore populär zu machen und sind eine der ganz GROßEN Nummer in dem Genre.
Reclaiming The Crown (Re-Release) - Cover
Bei "Reclaiming The Crown" handelt es sich mitnichten um das neue Album der belgischen Hardcorler BORN FROM PAIN, sondern um die neu abgemischte Auflage ihres 2000er Albums, dem direkten Vorgänger zu
Survival - Cover
BORN FROM PAIN hatten es in der zurückliegenden Zeit nicht wirklich einfach und neben Sänger Che auch den Drummer verloren, vom Verlust des Che-Ersatzes gar nicht zu reden.
War - Cover
Einen besseren Opener als "Relentless" hätten sich BORN FROM PAIN für ihr neues, schlicht "War" betiteltes, Album nicht aussuchen können.
