Scissorfight is an American hardcore / stoner metal band from Portsmouth, New Hampshire. They formed in 1995. The original lineup consisted of guitarist Jay Fortin, bassist Paul Jarvis, and drummer Joel Muzzey. Blending extreme genres such as grindcore and post-hardcore, the band hired vocalist Ironlung (named for his ability to take in illegal substances) to "stand there and look scary". Relocating to Boston, the band was not easily accepted by the local music scene due to their extreme behavior.
