Bio[Edit this profile]
Reuben were a three-piece musical group from Camberley in the United Kingdom. Their music can be said to be a fusion of alternative rock and heavy metal, as their songs cover a variety of styles, ranging from heavy and upbeat, such as their 2005 single "Blamethrower" to slower, more melodic songs such as their 2004 single "Moving to Blackwater". The former style of song often features vocalist Jamie switching between shouting and whispering, a technique often used in heavy metal and post-hardcore music. The band has gained much respect in the UK underground music scene, and are known for the devotion to their fans and their fans' devotion to the band. This respect has spawned a self-proclaimed "official" tribute band under the name 'Corned Beef'. The tribute band has uploaded a number of live videos onto YouTube which can be seen here. Reuben has achieved some mainstream success in the UK, their highest charting single being 2004's Freddy Kreuger that reached #53 in the UK Charts.
