The Famine

The Famine is a metal band that formed in 2007 in Arlington, Texas, and is signed to Solid State Records. The band features three of the original members of Embodyment. While lead vocalist Kris McCaddon previously played guitar in Demon Hunter he, along with Nowell, also played guitar in Society’s Finest. During the fall of 2006 the band recorded 3 songs that would later become a self-released EP. Their first album “The Raven and The Reaping” was recorded in November and December 2007 with Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, The Agony Scene) and released in May 2008. They performed on the Stronger Than Hell tour with Demon Hunter and Living Sacrifice in the summer of 2008.

They toured with Rose Funeral and The World We Knew during October 2008 and with The Devil Wears Prada, Saosin, and Underoath in November 2008. While a few of the band’s members are Christian and are signed to a label that is home to many Christian artists, the band has stated in several interviews that they are not a Christian-band. “You can call us whatever you want. We are a metal band and wouldn’t label ourselves anything but and honestly don’t care what people label us.”
