Formed by two like-minded nu metal buds in Springfield, Mass., in 1995, Staind grabbed the attention of Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst and the rest -- as they say -- is history. Prior to signing to a major label, the band was ignored by the Boston scene. They ended up playing lower-profile but frequent gigs in Western Mass, their dark sound benefiting from edgy, melodic vocals (somewhat like Alice In Chains) that ride over heavy, groove-oriented metal. Their frequent touring strategy paid off: after seeing the Staind open up a show for him, Durst took them under his wing. They released Dysfunction on Elektra in 1999, but their big breakthrough was Break the Cycle, which came out in 2002 and yielded the mega-mega seller "It's Been Awhile." In 2005, the band set its sights on the commercial alternative charts with Chapter V.

  • Live in Cologne Germany


    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 1 hr 29 min

    Staind dove into bleaker recesses than ever before and surfaced with their heaviest and most hypnotic album to date, STAIND, their self-titled, seventh studio album.
    The multi-platinum Massachusetts hard rock outfit Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, and Johnny "Old School" April pushed itself to the very brink. There was struggle and strife, but, as a result, Staind constructed a collection of chaotically melodic songs that hearken back to their 1999 major label debut, Dysfunction, while wielding an instrumental and lyrical prowess that could only be cultivated by 16 years of writing, recording, and touring together.

    This concert in Cologne Germany is one of just pure raw emotion and the performance is simply amazing. All the songs are sung with emotion drawn on lyrics taken from the lives of these exemplary band members.
