Negative Self - Negative Self

Negative Self are an offshoot of a former member of Swedish crossoverists Dr.Living Dead, Andreas Sandberg (who’s also drawn some covers in his time for the likes of Blaze and Enforcer), who left them to concentrate on his studies, realizing that music doesn’t pay as a profession, unless you do it fulltime and on a high level.
 

Born From Pain to release “Dance With the Devil” on November 28th 2014

Born From Pain was founded in the early summer of 1997, 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-80s Bay Area and German thrash metal and NY hardcore, 90s 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!

Def-Con-One - II
