Biography

There are two artists by this name:

1. A heavy metal band from Arizona, United States
2. A rock band from Zagreb, Croatia

1. The band is based out of Arizona; the five guys live in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale and Mesa. F5 mission is “to be heavy but always melodic”. It all started in 2003. David Ellefson had worked with the singer, Dale Steele, as he produced some demo tracks for a band Dale was in Minnesota. David also was working a group that included guitar player Steve Conley & drummer Dave Small, they were in a group called Lifted in Phoenix. They all stayed in touch; and in early 2003 Dave Small asked David if he wanted to come over and do some jamming; just kind of three friends in a room: David, Steve & Dave. They did it, & within a couple of days they had already written almost half a dozen songs, like five or six songs. They demoed them up, sent those to Dale in Minneapolis, he sang on them, sent them back, & they just sounded amazing. So Dale moved down to Phoenix, where they continued to write; then they realized they needed to bring in another guitar player, & Steve knew John Davis. Within about three or four months time, F5 was formed. They started sending the music out to record companies, & initially JVC in Japan was the first record company to come on board.

    I like it, it has the melodies of nu-metal without the annoying techniques and vocals that are normally associated with that genre coupled with more classic sounding instruments. Like nu-thrash metal... either way it's refreshing and I'm enjoying it.

    nah, nearly 50.000 scrobbled songs is not so very underrated, i think. This Group isn't very well known, that's the problem.

    I like Dale a lot and he sounds exactly live as he does on CD. But I agree that F5 should incorporate some backup vocals or something like his old band Sick Speed did, because while he can do lead vocals he doesn't have a wide enough range to do all the vox and it can get a little repetitious after awhile.
