The 3-piece progressive metal band Black Stains from Hamburg, Germany is inspired by artists like Vola, Northlane, Nothing More or The Intersphere. Specializing in melancholic, gritty and determined hooks, Black Stains simultaneously embody progressive stoner elements with quivering, pulsating hardcore-heavy breakdowns. The unwavering passion for moshpit-starting riffs and heavenly anthems exists in each of the three musicians. Since 2016, the two brothers Samuel (Guitar/Vocals) and Nick (Bass/Vocals) have formed a deep symbiosis with Jona (Drums). The trio first appeared on the heavy music scene in 2019 with their debut EP INSIDE. VISIONS MAGAZINE writes: "Black Stains' technical polish is especially evident in their deep, sometimes Djent-like guitar work, like in the EP opener "The Moon," where things get really tricky and you're reminded of Periphery's debut."
