Biography

There are more than one artist under this name

1. Farmer Boys is a metal band from Stuttgart, Germany. They reached their peak of popularity with their album The World Is Ours, released in 2000; the videos for singles “Here Comes The Pain” and “If You Ever Leave Me Standing” were put into heavy rotation by German alternative music channels such as VIVA Zwei.

Their musical style is a blend of Machine Head’s groove metal and Paradise Lost’s gothic metal; their lyrical matter, however, unusually to the style, often revolves around the darker side of agriculture - incest (“Farm Sweet Farm”), torture of animals (“When a Chicken Cries For Love”) and slaughterhouses (“When Pigs Fly”). (Their later albums have strayed away from the subject matter.)

Commonly confused with the early rock&roll/rockabilly group from the 50’s under the same name.

2. The Farmer Boys were an American country music duo consisting of Bobby Adamson (b. Sep. 20, 1933) and Woody Murray (b. Sep. 11, 1933).

Adamson and Murray were both natives of Arkansas who met in California when they sang a song together around a jukebox. In 1952 they started working together, singing at local dances with Adamson on lead vocals and Murray on harmony and guitar.

    Ich find's ja der Knaller, habe mit Matze mal an einer Tonstudioproduktion teilgenommen und gedacht die 'Farmer Boys' sind ne Boyband. Hab's mir nichtmal angehört ;o) Jetzt höre ich (durch meinen Mann) das Album ab und zu mal an und finde es echt gut! Hätte ich nie gedacht! Von mir aus könnt ihr gern noch ein neues Album rausbringen, das wär doch was! Zeigt es den vielen alten Säcken, die ihre Musik nur neu auflegen statt es nochmal krachen zu lassen!! So, den Shout wollte ich mal da lassen. ★franny★

    Trollkeeper <3 Someone wrote "chrsitians???" so i wrote "christians <3" coz they are. Video for Here Comes The Pain was idea of director and they wanted to shock people. There's nothing bad being "typical christian" and making awesome music without God in every track...

    I wouldn't say they have a typical Christian message. If they would be typical Christians they wouldn't make a video like in "Here Comes The Pain". Also some of their lyrics seem to question religious things and dogmas. They might be Christians but definitely not dumb ones who don't think about and question things. Just listen to "When God Was Sleeping" for example.

    @ KoRnCHILD: yes, I would say, "they have a definitive Christian message in every track". Just discovered these guys and yes, a few songs are quite unique and appealing. Many are similar to much that is already mainstream.

    Farmer with reading skills- keeping things 'simple' I guess and self sufficient not literal.
