Coal Chamber

Coal Chamber is a Nu-Metal band from Los Angeles, CA, USA formed in 1995. They enjoyed some mainstream success in the mid to late 90's during the nu metal boom which they, along with bands like KoЯn helped create. The band gained a large following early in their career, arguably because they were one of the first 'darker' themed nu metal bands. Coal Chamber signed to Roadrunner Records and recorded their first album (both in 1996) for their self-titled debut in 1997.

Artist Type: 

Fearless Vampire Killers

FVK began, as legends do tend to begin, in a small not particularly mind-blowing district of our fair isle. Five whippersnappers of similar age, found each other amidst the inertia of modern living and forged friendships through shared inspirations and aspirations. As the passing of time left them in danger of stagnating, our heroes ventured to the Big Smoke. Life was harsh to begin with, but as with all those of a heroic nature, The Fearless Vampire Killers prevailed, dancing to the Ballet Of The Teeth and telling tales of Grandomina, a world of Wonder, Vice, Love and Lust.

Artist Type: 

Custard

Custard were a masterful band of pop craftsmen with an uncanny grasp of the two-minute-something single who seemed to have equal amounts of Devo, Pavement and, oddly, disco in their genetic makeup. They were also blessed with singer Dave McCormack, whose voice was innocent and boyish-sounding enough to get away with things that might ordinarily cause a fuss – from songs about speed labs to geeky dedications to Jim Henson and an infamous declaration that “music is crap”.
