If it’s in your blood you don’t stop!
Upstate, NY metalcore mainstays Painmask have announced a 15 year anniversary show on their Facebook. This band have been true believers in the DIY hardcore and metal scene since the 90’s and continue to keep practicing what they preach no matter what the trends show. Though the group took a hiatus in the 00’s, the members have always lived up to the hardcore lifestyle and kept representing strong on the street or in da clubs. They came back strong the last few years with an EP and opened for Soulfly and Fear Factory recently.
I friggin’ love these guys. You should too. Every region worth their salt has a Painmask…that kick ass influential regional band that have opened for or collaborated with many nationals, that band everyone knows who never broke huge but never gave up caring because they STILL know every show is a chance to make your mark or connect with other human beings.
Sleep when you’re dead.
