Drain Sth (1995-2000) is a Grunge band from Stockholm, Sweden.
rain STH (the "STH" standing for Stockholm, and presumably inserted to avoid a name conflict with the American punk style band called Drain that features members of Butthole Surfers) came across as a different version of Alice In Chains featuring similar crooning vocal harmonies but the instrumental sounding more like 90's heavier Metal; Drain STH was one of the few all-female metal bands during the time. Horror Wrestling (1996) proved to be a fine debut and even featured a re-made grunge version of Motorhead's Ace Of Spades in a re-release. Featuring the membershipof Maria Sjoholm (vocals), Flavia Canel (guitar), Anna Kjellberg (bass) and Martina Axen (drums/backing vocals) they would also release a follow-up Freaks Of Nature (1999) before breaking up.
After the split the ladies went on to other lives including Sjoholm who married Black Sabbath's own Tony Iommi and three other members moving on to other bands, one being Anotherday (featuring Canel) and another being SuperFix (featuring Kjellberg and Axen, now a lead vocalist).
