Biography

There are 2 bands by this name:

1. Drowning Pool is a / band from Dallas, Texas formed in 1997 that rose to prominence while playing along with Ozzy Osbourne during Ozzfest. Their 2001 debut album, Sinner, was certified platinum within six months and the video for its first single “Bodies” was frequently aired on various music video channels. After the September 11th attacks the song “Bodies” was infrequently heard on many radio stations due to the sensitivity of those families’ loved ones who jumped from the towers. In August 2002 the lead singer of the band, Dave Williams, died in his tour bus of heart failure.

After Williams’ death, the band decided to carry on and began searching for a new singer.

In 2003, the band found a new singer in Jason Jones who took place of Dave Williams in the wake of his untimely death. They released the album Desensitized in 2004.

Jason’s departure from Drowning Pool was publically announced on June 14, 2005, due to irreconcilable differences. Jones would later join the christian rock band A.M. Conspiracy. Almost immediately, rumours started swirling concerning the new singer’s identity, most of them pointing to former SOiL singer Ryan McCombs. Drowning Pool announced that the singer would be formally announced August 25 at the Ozzfest date in Dallas, Texas, where Drowning Pool will do a one off performance on the main stage. On July 20th, website SMNNews received word from close sources that McCombs was indeed the new singer, and that fact was confirmed by McCombs and Drowning Pool alike the next week.

In spring of 2006, Drowning Pool announced that they had parted ways with Wind-Up Records. As of June 30th, Wind-Up’s website has been updated to confirm this.

    Not a fan of the last album, though One Finger And A Fist is SUPER!

    I remember when I first started using YouTube back in 2006, "Bodies" was the song for every fucking video... [2] haha true, oh man, and i still remember exploring that yahoo video streaming service for any interesting metal videos (this was around 2003/2004 think), it was all about Drowning Pool, Slipknot, Korn and Mudvayne back then :D

    also, @Maquina_Muerte. I think that 4th vocalist will be remembered after all, mostly thanks to band story. I could name few bands with very, very familiar vocalists with nearly same voice, but I won't, It's not the point of this opinion. Like I wrote down - listen to "Bleed With You", it's sooo awesome! That song just can't get out of my head! I think that next week, maybe month? will be based on spamming this song :D. @bloody72 Pozdrowienia również z Pomorza :D Greetings from Poland everyone! I hope that you'll enjoy listening to this band as much as I actually am!

    and about Bodies being nr 1 song.... well it's very logical, since the war in Afghanistan is still going on... and for some obscure reason US tank personel really like playing that song while shelling the fuck out of taliban tango's

    so what's the verdict on the singer nr 4? is it one to keep? or forgettable vocalist ?

    Their most popular song seems really bad-taste due to Dave Williams being dead.
