Formed in 2011 with Matt, Dan and Paul, and later being joined by Jamie and Luke, FaceGrabber are a riff heavy metal band with a twist of nu-metal and groove thrown into the mix.
Each member provides a distinct flavour to the Grabber metal primordial soup; Matt brings a primal, tribal sounding drum style akin to Sepultura and Korn. Paul provides a bright, technical bass sound that could be likened to Tool and Mudvayne, and these two elements provide a solid anchor for Dan and Luke.
Dan is the Yin, providing crushing, unabashed, riffaholic guitar lines that boils the blood and makes you involuntarily nod your head, whilst Luke brings the yang by thickening the sound with sweet harmonies and quick licks. Although both guitarists can and do play complex, technical compositions, they, along with Matt and Paul, prefer to go for the guttural, raw 'less is more' approach.
The Grabber cake is iced with Jamie's vocals, who has an impressive range. With meaty, lyrical growls like a melodic Randy Blythe and an instantaneous switch to a smooth, morose clean tone, Jamie is as dynamic and adaptable as the rest of the band, and this is reflected in each and every track written by the group; every song has a Grabber flavour but no two sound totally alike.
Topped off with an energetic, jovial performance style, FaceGrabber are a band you just have to see to believe.
