Since 1997, Born From Pain are a vital part of hardcore landscape. With their New York inispired hardcore, energetic shows and political engagement, the Dutch inspire not only their fans. After the first two records RECLAIMING THE CROWN and SANDS OF TIME they hit through the roof with their 2005 record IN LOVE WITH THE END. After several tours the band had an urgent singer problem, leading to Terror´s Scott Vogel filling in on the Hell On Earth tour 2007. Those times, however, are long gone and longtime bass player Rob Fransen is the fronter of the band for more than four years now. With him also the true hardcore sound came back, after BFP as fans often abbreviate, sounded rather metal on their record WAR. With the latest record SURVIVAL, the five came back to their roots and with THE NEW FUTURE they back this impression up.
