Product Overview

About the Artist:
Like dozens of groups before them, Flaw got its start when a guitarist placed an ad looking for a singer for an industrial/alternative band. Jason Daunt, the guitarist (also keyboards), placed the ad and Chris Volz, the singer, answered the ad. That was in 1996 and the foundation of FLAW was formed.

Volz, when he answered the ad, learned he was just a few blocks from Daunt in Louisville, Kentucky. The two of them got together that night and played their music for each other. Volz and Daunt, living in their rehearsal space, spent their waking hours working on the music. By 1997, Ryan Jurhs came on board to play bass and add background vocals. Soon after that FLAW recorded their first album, American Arrogance. Several tracks from that effort would turn up on the major label debut.

The album would also lead to opening for the likes of Econoline Crush and Fear Factory. It also garnered some airplay from a local radio station. Two more independent albums followed, FLAW (1998) and the EP Drama (2000). In between, guitarist Lance Arny and drummer Chris Ballinger completed the group's lineup in 1999. A showcase at New York's CBGB prompted Republic Records to sign FLAW in October 2000.

In early 2001, FLAW headed into the studio to begin work on their major label debut. Through the Eyes was released in early 2002 and landed on the Top 200 Album chart.

Album Notes and Credits
Flaw: Chris Volz (vocals); Lance Arny (guitar); Ryan Jurhs (acoustic guitar, bass instrument); Micah Havertape (drums).
On Flaw's 2001 debut album, THROUGH THE EYES, the band delivers an appealingly straightforward set of metallic hard rock that combined the mainstream pop smarts and production sheen of bands such as REO Speedwagon and Journey with sensitive, emo-tinged lyricism. ENDANGERED SPECIES finds the band further refining its signature sound with a collection of songs that explores existential angst, but with a clarity of vision and realistic outlook that encourages rather than depresses. Alternating between thick nu-metal bombast and gentle acoustic balladry, the group eschews cliched adolescent ranting in favor of a mature and thoughtful metal hybrid that should appeal to both headbangers and lovers of melancholy pop.
