DEAD was founded in Nuremberg by Dany Dead (g/v), Uwe Dead (w/v) and PK.Ripper (d/v) as a pure gore-grind band early May 1990. Musical role models were particularly Carcass, Pungent Stench, and Autopsy.
After the publication of the first demo in 1991, the band got immediately signed at Poserslaughter Records (Berlin) who released the first 7’’ EP within the same year. A split-CD and the first two full-length albums followed later on in continued cooperation. As DEAD was not contractually bound to this label, weresimultaneously also released by other underground record companies. Since the second EP Slaves to abysmal perversity, the band changed their textual orientation. Gore lyrics were now completely replaced by pornographic contents – filled with black, nasty/filthy humour.
After the appearance on the “Fuck the Commerce 2"-festival, DEAD disbanded in May 1998 due to the quit of PK.3 years passed and in 2001 they started to rehearsal once again their old material for just one single gig ( under the pseudonym “Les Stars Du Rock Porno” ) before they decided to revive DEAD in 2004, by a new signing at the Japanese label “Obliteration Records – who also organised the first mini-tour in Japan in the same year. PK Ripper left the band one year later once again and was immediately replaced by Ali Dead (drums for MAGGOT SHOES) as a new permanent band member. In 2005 a second tour in Japan followed, next to important appearances at e.g. the Party-San- , Obscene Extreme Festival, and the "Maryland Death Fest" in the UnitedStates.
Towards the end of 2008, Uwe decided to leave the band due to differing personal interests. But as the two remaining members had a suitable successor just available (Volker Dead), the exchange proceeded without neither problems nor delays.
With the new line-up they immediately signed at War Anthem Records for the next album “In the bondage of vice” which was released mid of June 2009. 2 years later DEAD next full-length album “Hardnaked…but DEAD!” was released via FDA Records on 18 th NOV 2011.
In 2017 DEAD will release a new album again on FDA Records, entitled “A dirty mind…is a joy forever!!!”.
