Ed Gein is an American grindcore band,[2] based in Syracuse, New York.[3] The band consists of Graham Reynolds (guitar, vocals), Aaron Jenkins (bass, vocals) and Jesse Daino (drums, vocals). The band takes its name from the American murderer of the same name.[1][4] The band is best known for its second album, Judas Goats and Dieseleaters (2005).[3] The follow-up record, titled Bad Luck, was released in 2011.[5]

Ed Gein's music has been labeled as grindcore,[2][6] metalcore,[4][5] mathcore and noise rock,[5] featuring influences from thrash metal.[1] On their third album, Bad Luck, the band shifted from their previous technical grindcore in favor of a more hardcore punk-influenced sound.[5] The band's lyrics, primarily written by bassist Aaron Jenkins, are politically charged and features social commentary, on topics including racism in the United States,[2] sexism, homophobia and bureaucracy.[6]
