Artist Biography by

Formed in Ithaca, NY in 1995, Boiler is a forceful, driving trio that combines slow-grinding metal and alternative rock with heavy doses of rapping. Boiler called its angry, blistering music "groovecore," and to be sure, Boiler's songs do groove in a very intense way. When Boiler first hit the East Coast rock scene, its lineup consisted of singer/bassist Will Price, singer/guitarist Marc Mays and drummer J. Harman (who has worked as a drum technician for alternative rockers ranging from Garbage to Alice In Chains and Soundgarden). Mays, meanwhile, has appeared on albums by Pro-Pain and M.O.D. The label Boiler ended up signing with was the New York-based Mayhem, which released its debut album, The New Professionals: Rules For Indusial Slammitude And Groovination in 1998.
