Pain Is – “God Particle”

Pain Is – “God Particle” (Noiseheadrecords)

Thankfully these guys (and lady) don’t sound as bad as their name suggests – although they’re certainly not lacking in brutality! Hailing from Austria, Pain Is essentially play metal core with a prominent and distinct vocal style that reminds me a lot of Keith Caputo when he was in Life Of Agony. Musically they aren’t too removed from other East Coast bands either like Biohazard in their hoarseness, aggressive riffs and ultra heavy rhythms – or even Danzig with their squeaking guitars. They’ve been going for the last decade although have stuck relatively close to home in terms of touring but with “God Particle” the reality of ‘pain-core’ (as they put it) will become apparent to all soon enough!
