What happens when two of the biggest hardcore metal acts in the area decide to merge together as one power and move forward? Well in the case of Buffalo, New York metal act STEMM, the past year has been one hell of a ride.
The band did their 1st show ever with Sevendust, toured with Chimaira, performed independent showcases from coast to coast, (including the legendary Whisky-A-Go-Go), earned a Jagermeister endorsement, wrote the theme song for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, had Mark Hunter of Chimaira guest vocal on their demo which sold over 1000 independent CDs in 2 months. If you think that is not intense, the lead singer also survived the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Drive and the determination to succeed is the force behind STEMM; generating an immense following throughout the world, and the attention of the industry, as they develop including:
