POD (Payable on Death) is a Christian Nu-Metal band from San Diego, California, that ventured its first musical attempts as a so-called garage band in 1992. Over the years, the four-piece band developed quite quickly to a significant member of the scene. They signed their first contract with Atlantic Records (later changed in 2007 to Columbia Records). The band’s singles achieved high chart rankings in several countries, Grammy nominations and platinum awards for their albums. Some songs were even used in movies and as background music in commercials. Following the huge success of the Satellite album released in 2001, the quartet went on a world tour, performing in Australia, New Zealand and England, and playing at festivals such as the Download Festival, Hellfest, Rock on the Range, River City Rock Fest, Carolina Rebellion or Aftershock Festival. They also shared stages with stars such as In This Moment, Prophets of Rage, Shinedown and Five Finger Deathpunch. The mix of various styles such as New Metal, Hip-Hop, Hardcore, Reggae and Rock was also very well received in Germany. Not for nothing they won in 2003 at the German record price Echo in the category “Best International Alternative Act” and were represented for weeks in the German charts. Their records have sold more than 12 million copies since the band was founded.
