Bursting onto the scene in the late 80s, Vain made waves and appeared on the covers of some of rock and metal's most respected magazines before they even signed a record deal. While toting similar edgy apparel to current glam metal contemporaries, Vain's MO in the Bay Area scene was having actual substance to their music rather than churning out the same three recycled chords like so many rip off bands were making money doing.
Guitarist/Vocalist Davy Vain founded Vain in 1986 in San Francisco, CA, after recording a demo in the studio that was produced by Metalica's Kirk Hammett. The songs hit hard and the recording captured the intensity of Davy's unique vocal style. With demo tape in hand, Davy set out to put together a band that could take over the world. Each band member was selected for their looks, musical chops and their belief in Davy's vision of what the band would be all about.
