Stain is the third album by Living Colour. It was released in 1993. It is the first album to feature bassist Doug Wimbish. Stain features a much heavier and aggressive Living Colour, containing elements of thrash metal and industrial music. It reached No. 26 on the Billboard 200. The band split up in January 1995 following a tour with Bad Brains. This was their hardest, edgiest work yet; the sheer bleakness of most of the songs dealing with alienation, indifference, hatred, insanity and persecution might have proved too “heavy”. This is Living Colour‘s masterpiece by far!
