Hailing from the United Kingdom, Stampin' Ground formed in early-1995 with the sole intention of creating the heaviest, slowest metallic hardcore possible. The band would record two demos in early and mid-1995, which helped the unit gain some popularity around the scene. Realizing that they wanted to go the D.I.Y. route, Stampin Ground began to constantly play shows and record more demos in their quest to "pay their dues." The band would soon find itself without a drummer (fired) and vocalist (other commitments), but soon found replacements. The stable new line-up would record a six-song demo, which would be sent out to various underground labels. Stampin Ground's first seven-inch, "Dawn of Night," would be released on Days of Fury Records. Its second seven-inch, "Starved," would be released by U.S. label Too Damn Hype. By now, the band was playing a number of shows with high-profile acts, such as Merauder, Ignite, and Sick of it All, as well as leading the charge of the growing U.K. hardcore scene. With numerous labels interested in the band, Stampin Ground would work with We Bite Records, releasing its previous seven-inches on CD. The band would record their debut album, "Demons Run Amok," in early-1997, as well as two other songs that ended up on comps. Constant touring resumed, but soon the band would find itself disenchanted with We Bite, and shopped around for a new label. They would eventually strike a deal with Century Media Records in mid-1998, and recorded their second full-length, "An Expression of Repressed Violence," around that time with a new vocalist. A split CDEP with Knuckledust was recorded after a European tour, and released on Blackfish Records (the bassist's label). More touring would ensue, and the band would cover several punk tunes that would surface on a comp disc. Finally, Stampin Ground would lay down tracks for its third LP, "Carved From Empty Words." Stampin Ground's latest release can be found on Thorp Records (Striking Distance, Knuckledust) stateside, and should appeal to hardcore fans of Hatebreed, All Out War, and Slayer. read less
