“If you took grunge rock, wrongfully imprisoned it for 20 years, and then tried to release it into modern society, it would sound like Martyrs for Mayhem.”
— James Doyle, vocals, lead guitar, MFM
Driving riffs, catchy rhythms, smart lyrics,
...and. killer. sound.
Martyrs for Mayhem are making hard rock alternative music like no one else in the San Diego scene. They've cracked the code of blending grunge, punk, and metal into a brilliant mix that is both aggressively energetic, yet consumable and catchy at the same time. Their strength lies in their wide range of sounds that captivate listeners across multiple genres, weaving hypnotic spells of emotionally-soothing psychedelia while still possessing the potential for visceral attitude on command. Formed in 2018 by three members who all excel at their instruments and songwriting, MFM wield weapons-grade edginess like a white-hot blade of sound that will not be denied.
