Boston's Bane began as a Converge side-project between guitarist Aaron Dalbec and drummer Damon Bellorado in 1995. Dalbec would recruit vocalist Aaron Berdard (ex-Backbone) to sing and write lyrics for the band. In late-1995, the trio, with a handful of completed songs, would enter the studio and record a demo at the legendary Salad Day Studios with Brian McTernan at the recording helm. In early-1996, bassist Pete Chilton would join the unit, and Bane would distribute over 500 copies of its demo, before playing its first live show in March of that year. With several temporary second guitarists, Bane would enter the studio once again to record its first seven-inch for Dalbec's own label, Life Records. As the band played more shows and increased its fanbase, Bane would return to the studio again in May 1997 to record its follow-up 7", "Free To Think, Free To Be," for Life Records once again. With more touring underneath the band's belt, 1998 would mark Bane's third 7", "Holding This Moment." By this time, Equal Vision Records would pick up Bane, and the label would compile all of the band's previous efforts onto one CD. Still a side project to certain degree, many of the band's members were committed to their other obligations. It wasn't until Nick Brannigan (ex-Close Call) took over drum duties, that the band's line-up began to solidify. Mid-1999 would mark the recording of its debut full-length, "It All Comes Down To This." The band would also participate in a split 7" with Adamantium (Indecision Records), and release its latest effort, "Give Blood," in 2001. Since its beginning, Bane has gone on countless tours, both short and long, playing with a bevy of hardcore stalwarts, and participating in fests, such as Hellfest. Fans of straight up hardcore with a tinge of metal and melody should definitely check out Bane. hide
