If they are unknown, how would I know about them?

I remember seeing these guys when I was going to be a junior in high school at the battle of the bands in the summer of 87' or perhaps it was when I moved away and came back to Indy in October of that same year. These guys were pretty good and my favorite band from the Indianapolis area. These are the two demos that I'm familiar with.

The second one is way better. Love that sound, though. Brings me back to the good ol' tape-trading days!!! Good stuff.

Yeah, the musicianship got marginally better AND it's just a better sounding demo. When I moved to Illinois, I had buddies that would tape a metal show on the radio that emanated from the south side of Indy, probably like 87 or 88. something. This was a show that would be on some random night for like three hours, coming out of the local college or high school??? Drop Dead would get some play, along with the main thrash artists. This station was how I discovered Slayer in 1986. My buddies and I heard "Jesus Saves" and couldn't f*cking believe our ears. By that time, I was already into Metallica and Megadeth (just barely), but we couldn't believe there was something even faster! It's weird to think, but this was how we discovered this shit! It was either getting lucky, by hearing it on some radio station, which probably had a radius of 20 miles in either direction or just taking a chance on something at the record store. My funds seemed to be more limited back then (compared to some of my friends), so I was the one usually trying to convince them to take a chance on it ( ha ha...). I usually got pretty lucky, when I picked something up blind, but I probably badgered the guy in the record store about what each band sounded like.

So, here's three more demos from Drop Dead. I know the lineup never changed, but man, Jason Smith (I think that was the vocalist name), sounds different here.



They had another demo, called "March of Empire" (1990), which doesn't seem to be on YouTube




...and by the way, me and my white friends, thought it was so cool that Drop Dead had a black member in the band, who just happened to be the guitarist. In 1987, I had only been listening to metal for maybe three years, and had never heard of Katon De Pena, so as far as I was concerned, he was the first (ha ha..)

These guys were from Philly, although their time came and went before I was old enough or metal enough to attend shows. I have some older buddies that saw them in the clubs back in the day though.

MAGGOT INFESTATION!!

Revenant was from my neck o' the woods ... they put out an album on Nuclear Blast back in the day.
They were the local "go-to" opener for pretty much every thrash/death metal show in our area Very Happy


On the more extreme side of things we had O.L.D., aka Old Lady Drivers (previously known as Regurgitation). The drummer on their first album went to my high school, he and my brother were buddies.
