Brazil will be forever known amongst the rock & metal community as the birthplace of the almighty Sepultura. Sure there’s been a handful of other great bands, but Max and co. have been the main exports. Stepping in for their turn is all-new band PAINSIDE. I went into listening to this album knowing absolutely nothing about the band minus the small bio they have on their Myspace.
Perhaps the most unequivocally journey of a band is not the shooting story of success, but the struggle to get their names out to the world and the scene. It seems like the Sydney natives definitely took the road less traveled when it came to finally releasing a record deal. Hell a journey that started in a New York bar when lead singer Martin Strange head a few drinks in a little bar in NYC and decided to get up and sing discovering his passion for rock.
