Details of Nothingface and the Ticket Luck value
Let us introduce you to a band that has established good fan base in a very short period of time. A refreshing addition to American metal scene, Nothingface will surely go a long way considering their talent and superb stage persona.
This four-piece alternative metal band from Washington, D.C noted for having graphic lyrics and using political themes in their newer works, as well as polyrhythmic songs.
Nothingface was formed in 1994, with vocalist David Gabbard, guitarist Tom Maxwell, bassist Bill Gaal and drummer Chris Houck. Gabbard left the band after releasing three tapes and was replaced by Matt Holt. Their debut album was released in 1997.
Titled Pacifier, the album was released by DCide Records. It was re-released on August 11, 1998 via DCide/Mayhem Records. It consisted of ten tracks, with molestation being the main theme in the lyrics. There was also an early version of the album named Nothingface in 1995.
The band's second outing was An Audio Guide to Everyday Atrocity. Released on September 22, 1998, the album got them widespread recognition and fame.
Two years later, they released their third album Violence. This 2000 released album can be regarded as the band's national debut, as it opened new horizons for them.
Released by TVT Records, the album featured Chris Houck on drums who was later replaced by Tommy Sickles of Ingredient 17 fame.
This was followed by some more alterations as in early 2001; Bill Gaal left the group to pursue a career in music production and engineering. He was replaced by a former member of The Deadlights, Jerry Montano. However, a few months later, Gaal returned to his position as bassist.
Skeletons was bands next release after his return and before the break-up of the band. Released on April 22, 2003 by TVT Records, the album really rocked the Nothingface fans as it contained some of their best work ever.
The song Ether proved a big hit and was featured on the Freddy vs. Jason Movie Soundtrack. However, some of the band members termed it as a mediocre effort hinting at some internal issues in the band.
On February 10, 2004, the group disbanded and cited different reasons like musical differences, turmoil and label troubles behind the breakup.
Although the band members got busy with other bands and assignments, like Bill Gaal formed Kingdom of Snakes, but their fans missed the charisma they used to bring together. However, the fans heard the good news when the band performed as the opening act for Disturbed in a 2006 show.
After this show, the line-up Matt Holt, Tom Maxwell, Jerry Montano and Tommy Sickles went on to do small U.S. clubs tour as well. This has marked the re-entry of the heroes as they promises more stuff together in the near future.
Currently touted to be working on a new album, the talented and supremely gifted members of Nothingface are up to surprise their fans by working together on more albums and tours. Watch out for them as they may be performing to a venue near you very soon.
