Alice in Chains is an influential grunge group formed by lead singer Layne Staley (1967-2002). Along with Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, Alice in Chains is one of the most commercially successful bands from the Seattle, Washington, grunge music scene. Unlike many of their peers, Alice in Chains owed more to heavy metal than to punk or '70s rock, but the group became closely associated with grunge due to their Seattle roots, the image they often presented by their attire, as well as with their introspective and sometimes morbid lyrics. Hurt is an up and coming band that has made inroads, touring with Staind on the Jagermeister Music Tour. Traces of Tool, Nirvana, and mid-period Metallica flicker throughout their debut album, but Hurt have created a remarkably individual sound nonetheless.
