Biography

There are multiple artists who go by the name Medication;

1) Forceful and heavy yet consistently melodic, Medication was a Los Angeles-based rock combo that included ex-members of Soulfly, Machine Head, dayinthelife, Skrew, Life of Agony and Ugly Kid Joe.

For all its intensity and aggression, the band is never without a strong sense of melody. Medication isn’t the sort of alterna-rock outfit that believes in bombast for the sake of bombast; their songs tend to be hard-driving yet intricate. All five members of Medication, which formed in L.A. in the late ’90s, have belonged to other alternative rock and/or bands. Lead singer Whitfield Crane was with Life of Agony and Ugly Kid Joe, while guitarist B-Blunt is a graduate of dayinthelife and bassist Kyle Sanders is a former member of Piece Dog and Skrew. Guitarist Logan Mader and drummer Roy “Rata” Mayorga have both been with Soulfly; Mader is also a graduate of Machine Head and Mayorga belonged to a band called Thorn before he joined Soulfly in 1996. The ones who first got the ball rolling for Medication were Crane and Mader, who became friends in 1998 at Ozzy Osbourne’s Ozzfest. At that point, Crane was still with Life of Agony, which, like Soulfly, was among the bands on the 1998 Ozzfest bill.

    Prince Valium is one of my favourite records of all time. It's also pretty far off from the Nu Metal tag in my view.

    It's a pity when band titles coincide/ There's a beautiful american garage band Medication - http://www.myspace.com/rottenhomerecordings They released a brilliant LP "This Town" some time ago. Strongly reccomend!

    We have to come up with a different tag for Mikey, like medication. or Mëdication. I'm sick of seeing those wack-ass cliched grunge monkeys on my computer screen.

    Medication doesn't sound like nu-metal at all... closer to like a a catchy punk/alternative rock

    Medication #1 is where it's at. What the fuck is wrong with all you blog-trawling, thrift shoppers. Poseurs the lot of you.
