Origin: New York, New York, USA  
Genres: Alternative Metal
Last update/review: August 2, 2000


With guitarists spending time in bands such as Helmet and Quicksand (and the rhythm section playing in hardcore bands Murphy's Law and Cro-Mags), it shouldn't come as a surprise to learn that Handsome's sound is rooted in the post-alternative, post-grunge world of hard rock/metal. With some diverse songwriting on display, and some standout tracks such as "Eden Complex" and the ultra-heavy "Lead Bellied", it seemed as though the band might have a bright future. It appears, however, that the band broke up some time ago.
