PAIN OF TRUTH
Long Island, NY, USA
“Pain of Truth is one of those bands whose name is perfectly apt for the band’s sound and aesthetic. The band hits with an aggressiveness that gives the listener pause, even for the hardcore world.
The group is fronted by Michael Smith, a young man who’s easily one of the busiest people in the hardcore underground. He plays guitar in Hangman, he plays bass in Victory Garden, and he’s the vocalist in Pain of Truth. What’s great there is that none of these bands sounds all that similar to the others.” (No Echo Magazine)
