Tapping The Vein

Recording-studio intern Eric Fisher first met programmer/keyboardist Charlie Clouser while working at the same studio in Philadelphia, PA. When he heard the sound that Clouser could get from electronic instruments, he was inspired enough to start writing with a sequencer and a sampler. He soon found guitarist Steve Stagg and bassist Lou Louvenir to help him with his vision, until finally the trio picked the name Tapping the Vein and continued onward. When auditioning singers, Heather Thompson came in and immediately won herself the job with her strong vocals. They recorded a demo and started working locally, but Stagg and Louvenir dropped out and turned the band into a duo. Thompson and Fisher brought in guitarist Mark Burkert and bassist Joe Rolland to record a second demo. They started opening for like-minded artists in their hometown, eventually gathering quite the local fan base while their music began to catch on nationally through their involvement with MP3.com. They signed to Nuclear Blast in 2001 and recorded their debut, The Damage, for a 2002 release. ~ Bradley Torreano, Rovi

Heather rocks and she is a really cool person. They do a really good version of cornflake girl.

"THE RIVER" is an awesome song. I first heard on a compilation CD titled "ASLEEP BY DAWN presents Dj Ferret" Its the first cd. They have sequels, about 3 that I know of. There's some o.k. songs on those too.

used to go to a few shows when they played at "SANCTUARY". I my self am happy to see that they are still around and kickin.

I agree that they are definitely not close to emo. They have strong high quality vocals, a driving beat, and when I am done listening I don't want to kill myself. They are something like a mix between Ego Likeness and Birthday Massacre. They fit more closely into the goth industrial genre.

they are ok. i liked them better when they were part of britney spears back up vocals. they also played on a few tracks of miley cyrus album. they are kind of a sellout band. not even close to emo.

One of my professors intruduced me to them. It's so hard to find good goth bands with female vocals. Tapping the Vein rivals Kidneythieve s ! A most wonderful album and an intense voice that needs to be heard!
