CYCLE OF PAIN, the band featuring BLACK LABEL SOCIETY bassist John "J.D." DeServio, has parted ways with Sliptrick Records. As a result, the band's previously announced EP, "Pain Us", which was originally due on November 27, will be made available in early 2014. A single and new video will be released around the holidays.
CYCLE OF PAIN has several shows scheduled for December and January with BLACK WATER RISING, none of which have been cancelled due to the label split.
CYCLE OF PAIN is:
John "J.D." DeServio (Bass)
Joe Taylor (Lead Guitar)
Gregg Locascio (Vocals, Guitar)
Bob Pantella (Drums)
Troy Cromwell (Keyboards)
The self-titled CYCLE OF PAIN CD was released in 2009 through Reform Records.
Though rooted in metal, CYCLE OF PAIN's first album delved into elements of funk, hip-hop and soul. The effort featured guest appearances by Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE), Ray Luzier (KORN), Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY) and Russell Allen (SYMPHONY X), among others.
