Biography

Strongarm came from South Florida. The band was the result of several local bands who had similar tastes in music and who were all Christians. Jason Berggren started Ikthus which included Chris Carbonell and Chad Neptune. Eventually Josh Colbert and Nick Dominguez joined forces with them when their band Endure broke up, which then became Strongarm (Endure had a song called “Together” which was covered by Strongarm and put as a hidden track on the Advent Of A Miracle CD). This was the original line up:

Nick Dominguez - Guitar
Joshua Colbert - Guitar
Chris Carbonell - Drums
Chad Neptune - Bass
Jason Berggren - Vocals

Strongarm started in 1993 and under this line-up recorded two demos: first there was a 3 track nameless demo recorded at this guy Tony Bartoli’s house. It featured “Forgiven”, “Stand Together” (both re-recorded for Atonement) and the otherwise unreleased song “Unfold”. Shortly thereafter they recorded their second demo in a local studio with better production: a 4 track demo called “These Times That Try Men’s Souls” (featuring the songs “Count The Cost”, “Trials”, “Remaining” and “Strenghtened In Faith”. While recording this demo, Tooth & Nail Records contacted Strongarm expressing interest in them (how they heard of them is still a mystery today). Strongarm sent over their whole demo, and Strongarm’s song “Count the Cost” appeared on Tooth & Nail’s first compilation album entitled “Helpless Amongst Friends” (P.O.D. also appears on that). This demo, and Strongarm’s performance at Cornerstone Festival that year, caught the attention of Tooth & Nail Records president Brandon Ebel who signed them.
