The best kept secret in music



"This music is a venomous assault of emotions that range from sorrow to angst, causing the listener to do anything from headbanging to swaying." - Regenmag.com


"The music, Nein’s voice, Chelle's back-up vocals are so gripping that I had their fingerprints imprinted on my wrists." - Wrankmusic.com


"Chuck Nein is an amazing vocalist, capable of quite the phenomenal range, and is backed by sensual and breathtaking female vocals on many songs, which only add strength to the already high caliber arrangements."

"Apathy manages to expertly convey a wide range of feelings and attitudes. Full of bone crunching guitars, heavily structured sequencing and programming, addictive thumping bass lines, and torrents of blazing percussion, this is a band that has it together." - graveconcerns.com

"Portland Mercury"

"Pillars of Nein's slow, apocalyptic goth/metal is some of the most compelling music I've heard in a while. They borrow from classic bands like the Cure, but they pull together something that's original; dark and atmospheric, but still rock." - Portland Mercury


Apathy (2005 Kill Nein Publishing)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Chuck Nein creates a melting pot of different musical infulences and combines it with a lyrical content so intimate and compelling as to suck the audience right into the dark and tormented tales of romantic dissonance. The lyrical persona of Chuck Nein follows the "catch me if you can" dissociative personality often characteristic of the young, wild, and boundless individuals that may identify with new music icons such as Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, and Rammstein.
