Brides of Destruction originally started around 2002, when rock veterans Tracii Guns and Nikki Sixx joined forces with Adema drummer Kris Kohls, keyboardist Adam Hamilton, and unknown Los Angeles vocalist London LeGrand in a project called 'Cockstar'. Hamilton quickly left, and was replaced by utility rhythm guitarist John Corabi, who'd served a brief '90s tour of duty as Mötley Crüe's shouter. The band was then rechristened Brides of Destruction, and some initial demos were recorded. However, by early 2003, both Corabi and Kohls had departed. A reconfigured lineup of vocalist LeGrand, sole guitarist Guns, bassist Sixx, and session drummer Scott Coogan were on hiatus for much of early '03, stymied by side gigs and the fluid nature of the project itself, but by that summer they were back in the studio and entertaining label interest. They eventually signed with Sanctuary, which issued Here Come the Brides' straightforward mix of hard rock and post-grunge in Japan that December. The label set a U.S. street date for early March '04, and the Brides announced plans to tour that summer. Their follow-up, Runaway Brides, was released in 2005 on the Shrapnel label. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
