As anyone in a band can attest, signature sounds don’t develop overnight.

Floor, who play Chop Suey Saturday, existed for a decade before hitting on theirs.

Explains guitarist and co-founder Anthony Vialon, it was somewhere in his and singer-guitarist Steve Brooks’ hometown of Miami, sometime in the late 1990s, when it happened.

“We were at practice,” Vialon recalls. “Steve picked up a guitar with a broken E string, started hitting it and we were like ‘man, that’s the heaviest [expletive] ever… the bomb string.’
