Washington DC's Friend For A Foe (FFaF) began as a one-man band, gaining attention since 2004. After a lengthy nationwide search, FFaF is now established as a full-fledged band consisting of talented musicians who are making big strides in the underground metal music scene and taking the nation by storm.

FFaF's band members share the common thread of capturing the trials and tribulations of everyday life in their writing and instrumentation and do so with absolute perfection. Featuring top-notch production, heavy, bone-jarring riffs with 7 and 8-string guitars, precision drumming, dissonant yet beautiful melodic intricacies, and haunting lyrics by their unconventional vocal duo, FFaF will continue to push the boundaries of metal music and make a name for themselves in the US and abroad.

Beauty coalesced with brutality. This is what metal is all about ... So abrasive you'll need to catch your breath.
Why this name?
It was a long process...I went through several name changes throughout the years, but "Friend For A Foe" stuck because we've always rooted for the "underdog" in society or the one who's not completely accepted by others (thus Friend For A Foe)
Do you play live?
Shows are coming soon! There's nothing like creating a mosh pit with your music in front of a couple of hundred (or thousand) people...good times!
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
We're all for the free exchange of music, but if it comes down to the little guy getting cut from his dues then it's not so great. But with this website, MySpace and several others, promoting your music is easier than ever, which is really not a band thing (free publicity is not bad at all). Plus you can be lazy and not go to the store...you can just sit and click and get what you want.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, but as long as I still had the creative freedom of expressing myself through my music. I wouldn't bow down to that crap "MTV image" thing that so many bands do nowadays.
Band History:
Friend For A Foe has been a labor of love for quite some time and is now a fully-fledged band featuring members of ridiculous talent.
All songs are self-produced and self-made. Hope you enjoy!
Your influences?
We love all types of music, but metal is where it's at. Everday situations inspire us too ... something as simple as a cell phone ringtone or something as complex as losing a loved one ... anything could pop up at any given moment.
