STEMM penned the UFC theme song, "Face The Pain" 8 years ago, branding the Hard Rock act as 'The Soundtrack to the Ultimate Fighting Championship'. After years of independent success, STEMM has returned with their sophomore effort, Cross Roads through independent label, Catch 22 Records.
A taste of Active Rock and Satellite Radio success and 150+ road shows supporting their previous release, Blood Scent seems to have brought STEMM’s song writing process for Cross Roads to a maturity level loaded with an interesting blend of groovy guitar riffs, beats and vocal hooks with an intensity comparable to Alice in Chains, Pantera and Stone Sour.
STEMM is a proven survivor in a sea of ‘flash in the pan’ success stories. The bands live show and reputation in the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) world since 2003 have landed STEMM on every UFC-related television program and video game, plus song placement on Sega’s IRON MAN 2 and EA Sports ‘MMA’ video games. STEMM has also been tapped to play various Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Tour dates and other national tours over the years.
