Drop Dead - Drop Dead

Posted on Monday, December 06, 2010

Another Indiana band, this time from Indianapolis. This is their second demo, and is a big improvement over the first. The songs (“Legions of Shame,” “Humanity’s Fate,” “Cryptic Burial,” “Silent War,” “Signs of the Coming,” and “Massacre in Session”) are all very strong, with no weak spots! While not all the songs are played at the speed of light, they are all heavy; really heavy. Since the recording of this demo, Drop Dead have had a line-up change: Kevin now plays guitar and sings too, Kris still plays the drums, and new member Dave is on bass guitar. They are working on songs for a new demo, to be released “sometime soon.” Inspired by Death (the band) and other Death Metal bands, Drop Dead has the potential to be the front of the Death Metal scene. They are sure to get signed soon, so don’t miss out on this, or you will be sorry.

{After one more demo, Our Forgotten Destiny, this band seemed to disappear. Some time later I heard that they were releasing a 7-inch through A.R.T. Records. If I remember correctly, that 7-inch consisted of some already recorded demo tracks (although from what demo, I’m not sure). It likely didn’t do very well for them, as A.R.T. was only a memory not too much later. I’m always a little sad to see bands I like give up. Where are you now, Drop Dead? Also worth noting is that there is a currently active Hardcore/Crust band using the name Drop Dead, and as far as I know, they’ve got nothing to do with this, the original DD.}
