Ed Gein

ed_geinEd Gein is a three piece political mathcore, grindcore band from Syracuse, NY, named after American killer, Ed Gein. The band has been pounding the pavement hard since their formation in 2001, touring furiously and earning themselves a cult-like following across the US and Canada. Each of the members perform vocals equally; there is no lead vocalist. They are currently on Black Market Activities / Metal Blade Records. Musically, the band takes influence from such bands as Coalesce, Fall Silent, Turmoil, Backstabbers Incorporated, and Pig Destroyer.

The band’s lyrics consist straight and direct-spoken manifestos and messages along with their political and ideological influence. Most of the lyrics are short (about 5-6 lines), built from simple vocabulary giving the band’s messages both easy to understand and get straight to the lyrical point on the current aspects. They are currently “laying low”, but plan to return with a split with Graf Orlock and a second full-length.
