ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Drainage X started in November 2002 in Lancaster Ca. In 2003 we relocated to Sin City.Currently our band rocked The Gathering of The Juggalos 2004 in front of over 4500 Juggalos.And also toured with Jumpsteady, ABK, Blaze and Esham on the PHAT tour of 2005.We don't just play
music, we put on a show.
The DRAINAGE X stage show
involves very sexy Vampire Girls who dance on stage, and
the leader of the vampires,
EVIL SINS, who does very
strange things during the show!!!
Anyone who comes to a
DRAINAGE X show should be prepared to have a crazytime.
The music you'll hear online doesn't do us justice.
You have to hear us live!!BLOOD ON THE CROSS

If there’s one thing that Drainage X has managed to do with
their
latest release “Blood on the Cross” is prove that extreme metal need
not
hide behind a constant double bass and 10,000 blast beats. Although
these
elements are used on occasion on songs like “Mucho Mosh” and “Death’s
Face”
the band doesn’t over dose on these stylings, but rather throw them in
a
diversified blend of madness that is present on the album, but of
course who
could leave out a blistering guitar solo and a throat massacring
scream?
Well certainly not the boys of Drainage X. With an appearance similar
to the
likes of Scandinavian Black Metal acts such as Enthroned, Immortal or
Emperor this band is too good and well rounded to be categorized as a
one
dimensional act. The depth of the music is uncanny when one’s ears are
being
scorched by the sounds of “Amputee” only to fall into the relaxing
melody
that is “Acoustic Puff”. With a quality reminiscent of a track from
DOWN, an
old school stoner metal aspect can be heard. Once there, the music
becomes
entrancing and full of mood, you become engulfed in the pause from the
madness to which you had just become previously just encased. Hence
when the
final bong rip is over you are thrust face first into the band’s
apparent
battle cry for chaos; “Mucho Mosh”. This is probably the most
unrelenting
track on the album, so full of entropy and madness there aren’t even
any
real lyrics. This is pretty much a straight forward thrash song (as the
title suggests) purely for moshing and pandemonium. Most of the album
follows suit on such songs, but their influences of Slayer and Black
Sabbath
are also relevant in songs such as “Falling Skin” and “Space Zombie”
which
carry a New York Hardcore (old school White Zombie) kind of song
structure.
This album is an eclectic blend of the most prominent styles of metal,
which
keeps the listener hooked without the songs loosing their individuality
or
creativeness. This kind of writing and style can only be attributed to
musicians with a background and experience at what they do. 10+ years
these
guys have been making music and it shows in style and song
arrangements,
these are not rookies. Though this now will bring us to the last track
and
surprisingly one of the oddest on the album and that is “Evil Dreams”.
This
is the perfect closure to an album that would be well suited as a
soundtrack
to a gore filled “slasher” movie. This would be the last scene where
the
murderer gets away (for the sequel) the hero is killed and the credits
role.
The fine print next to the song reads “head phones required” which is
not
suggestive as you need them to engulf yourself in the dark feeling of
these
“evil dreams”/nightmare.
This perfectly sums up this masterpiece of underground mayhem
known as
Drainage X, for when the album is over the listener is compelled to
place
the CD player on “repeat” as to relive the evil that is “Blood on the
Cross”.

And now its time for PAIN our new full lenght album recently hit the stores and will soon be available through CD Baby. This album will knock your socks off. With is hardcore riffs and deafining screams.So keep a look out for this new release.





One of our songs has been released on a movie called

and RAMSTEER FILMS
OUT OF NEW YORK IS USING SEVERAL OF OUR
SONGS IN THEIR HORROR MOVIES!!!!

Located in “Sin City” itself
fabulous Las Vegas, we are a traveling band ready to work anywhere in the USA .

We appreciate your time,
and look forward to
hearing from you.

DEVASTATING WITH MELODIES, AND BREAKDOWNS.
devastating
With melodies, breakdowns and vocals similar to Black Metal, this band is too good to be categorized. Where most extreme metal bands hide behind blast beats and a constant double bass drum, this band goes straight for the throat. Mixxxing styles from all kinds of metal to form the mold to which they call "Drainage X". The members of this band have a goal of chaos and are well on their way to achieving it. Unlike most black/death metal bands such as Revenge and Houwister where songs sound so alike they get jumbled into a track listing that might as well beone 30 min. song, Drainage X have well written song structures and breakdowns that give each song it's own feel. This is probably due to the bands' long term experience as musicians over the years which is present in all songs. Turn off your radio, stop crying over some p*ssy emo song and go buy this! I think of them as the pride of the Vegas underground. All hail Drainage X!!!
