Biography

There is more than one artist with this name.

1. Burn was a New York hardcore band which began in 1988 playing what could be considered progressive hardcore music with introspective lyrics. Burn released its first self-titled EP in 1991. In 1994, the band separated, with vocalist Chaka Malik forming Orange 9mm, guitarist Gavin Van Vlack participating in Pry and Die 116, and Alan Cage in Quicksand. The band never “officially” disbanded, and after a stint of live performances, Burn was finally resurrected with the addition of guitarist Vic DiCara (from Inside Out) and (from Beyond and bassist Manny Carrero (from Glassjaw). In late 2001, Burn released a new EP on Equal Vision Records, Cleanse. In 2002, the band dropped a previously unreleased recording from 1992 on Revelation entitled, Last Great Sea, due to fans seeking out the tunes which had been circulating among fans from a demo.

2. In 2007 they won the “Geheim van Starsound”, “Metal Battle” Utrecht and appeared in the finals of the “Grote Utrechtse Live Prijs” (Utrecht’s Big Live Awards). A young, but already impressive, live-band!

Tougher then Hard Rock with more melody then Extreme Metal; it’s melodic Heavy Metal that binds a metal and mainstream audience. Tied together by the strings of hard rock and heavy metal, five young dudes rock your balls off. Original, unique and with a fresh sound among the rock and metal bands of today. Refinement and virtuosity go hand in hand with a great show and awesome guitar riffs.

    Muss es wohl mehrere Bands geben, die so heißen. Die die mit Schandmaul aktuell auf Tour sind, kommen aus Münster und machen New Wave Rock im Stile der 80er, haben gerade ihr 2. Album veröffentlicht. www.burnmusic.de

    Joa, da scheint es eine Verwechslung zu geben. Wer ist denn nun wirklich dabei? Oder gibt es nur mal wieder einen Namensvetter?

    there is only one douche and that is you. BURN was from NYC, was one of the greatest hardcore bands of all time and the other crew of knuckleheads from sweden needs to change their name.
