Vincristine is a metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Vincristine's objective has always been to sensibly craft unique, original music out of a wide variety of influences, rather than sticking to tried and true methods or staying firmly in a narrowly defined genre. Blending the sound of bands like Soundgarden, Tool, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Stoned Jesus, Black Sabbath, Tame Impala, Alice in Chains, The Pretty Reckless, and many other acts, their sound encompasses heavy psychedelic progressive metal to soft acoustic verse and anything in between or surrounding.
The band’s name stems from the experiences of Nick Ranayhossaini, the primary songwriter and instrumentalist. A childhood cancer survivor, specifically of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Nick latched onto the simplicity and strength in the name of one of the chemotherapy drugs in his treatment - vincristine.
