Washington D.C., United States (1994 – 2004, 2005 – 2009)

Nothingface were a band which formed in 1994 in Washington D.C., United States. For most of the band’s career, the lineup consisted of Matt Holt (vocals), Tom Maxwell (guitar), Bill Gaal (bass) and Chris Houck (drums). The band released five albums - “Nothingface” (1995), “Pacifier” (1997), “An Audio Guide to Everyday Atrocity” (1998), “Violence” (2000) and “Skeletons” (2004) - before disbanding in 2004. The band reformed in 2005, but disbanded once more in 2009.

Other bandmembers included David Gabbard (vocals, 1994-1995), Jerry Montano (2001, 2005-2007) and Tommy Sickles (2000-2004, 2005-2007).

Formed in 1994, the band’s original line-up consisted of vocalist David Gabbard, guitarist Tom Maxwell, bassist Bill Gaal and drummer Chris Houck. They released three tapes with this lineup, until Gabbard left the band. At this point Matt Holt took over singing duties. The band then recorded a self-titled album featuring ten songs. DCide then discovered Nothingface, and they re-recorded the album, with six of the songs featuring on their debut album Pacifier, released February 6, 1997.

The band were often mislabeled as nu metal, however many music critics denied them as nu metal. They also are known for their extremely aggressive and heavy style.

The band’s second album An Audio Guide to Everyday Atrocity was released on September 22, 1998 via DCide/Mayhem Records. The band toured in support of the album throughout the United States with Stuck Mojo,[2] Sam Black Church and Ministry.[2]

    Nothingface were better than Slipknot... in 1998 Nothingface had TWO albums released "Pacifier" and "An Audio Guide to Everyday Atrocity"...Slipknot were just being signed. Nice try though "clowns"...

    Can't believe a 5th album with the true Nothingface lineup was never completed, Tom calls out Matt for his lack of ambition, drive and passion and Matt... never even responded so bigger picture I hope Matt is happy and living well, wherever he is. It always sucks knowing someone THAT TALENTED has done basically nothing for over 5 years...

    Well you should be fairly good at death growls then (saying that sounds ridiculous) but SINGING is what draws people in and takes more talent (requires so much from your diaphragm) ... it's more natural and had there been a 5th Nothingface record Matt would've been singing a lot and screaming/growling far less. Finding a talented SINGER these days, well they're in high demand and just extremely hard to find. A true front man. Doing nothing but growling and screaming does nothing for me and isn't very original in my opinion. Gets old fast and it's like "OK, I get it."

    Gotta take care of your voice if you sing. Doubly so for me since I mostly do death metal growls.
