DEAD HEAD (HOLLAND)


Forming in March of 1989, Dead Head set out to become the fastest and most extreme thrash band ever. The band recorded two demo's filled with hectic and somewhat chaotic thrash, that went down really well in the underground world of tape trading. In addition, the band played with many 'big names' very early in their career, for instance doing an 8-date tour with Carcass before even having signed a record deal. However, since thrash was not really the flavor of the week in the early nineties, landing a record deal proved to be quite a struggle. Considering the band sold over 2500 demo tapes worldwide by mail order, they should 'in that stage' have done a self released album and build it slowly from there. Instead, they put their hope into a small German label, that subsequently fucked up the mastering of the debut album "The Feast Begins At Dawn"(1991). Due to it's 'de-emphasized' sound, the first Dead Head album could not really live up to the expectations that the demos had raised in previous years, resulting in mixed reviews. A second album, entitled "Dream Deceiver"(1993), partially made up for this and got better reviews overall. This CD saw the band moving towards a slightly more structured and melodic sound, while their cooperation with a new drummer provided some technical detail to the music as well. Dead Head did two European tours to support the first two albums, in addition to many weekend shows as well as short trips to Belgium and Scandinavia.
