|MyGrain saw the daylight in the summer of 2004 as Tommy (v), Resistor (g) and Matthew (g), band mates since 1999 from the recently disbanded New Science Band picked up the pieces and started over.
The new group's initial purpose was just to play some rough metal with melodies. After completing their lineup with DJ Locomotive (d), Eve (k) and Yonas (b), the sextet's 2nd independent release The Red Frame caught the attention of Spinefarm Records with whom a deal was soon signed.
The first fruit of label collaboration was 2006's Orbit Dance. The debut album featured eleven songs of modern metal with influences of both Nordic melodic death metal and the American style. Being the live band MyGrain are they focused on touring Finnish venues after the release of Orbit Dance but while still on tour they forged another batch of songs and in February 2008 their 2nd album Signs of Existence was released.
The sophomore album developed MyGrain's edgy, melodic sound into a style deeper more original and vastly more confident.
The times after releasing Signs of Existence were both exciting and frustration-filled for the band. There were great moments like throwing numerous gigs around Finland but the band also had to go through dark times as they had to let Matthew go. Pretty soon he was replaced by Mr. Downhill, who rapidly became an important part of MyGrain. He instantly showed some serious credibility both in live perfomance and composing.
"Third time is the charm", they say. This time 'they' are right.
Taking their effort up another notch and carving a niche of their own somewhere between the violent technicality and pop sensibilities with a modern approach yet armed with otherworldly subject matter completely of their own, MyGrain's space metal is here and it will kick your sorry derriere to the Moon orbit.
Earth-shattering, tsunami-inducing guitar riffs, extraterrestial keyboard soundscapes and the immaculate balance between brutal and melodic vocals go for the jugular and never let go.
Resistance is futile. You WILL be assimilated.
