DROPDEAD United States



Well, whoever thought they wouldn't see them any more or they had just missed them by ill luck, they were dead wrong! The kings of fast hardcore are back once again! DROPDEAD for the second time at the Obscene Extreme Festival! A couple more years and this combo will be celebrating their 30th anniversary. A band that was first influenced by groups such as Infest, Anti-Cimex, Siege, Discharge, Septic Death, Confuse or Gauze has itself been influencing dozens of related groups since two decades.

Since their quasi-reincarnation after 2000, they have released another series of interesting recordings, mostly splits with bands such as Ruidos Inmundicia, Systematic Death, Unholy Grave or Brainoil. So an unbelievable mosh and a massacre in front of the stage at the OEF 2019!!!


Dropdead formed officially in January of 1991 in Providence RI. Having met in 1989, playing music together for a year before a lineup change saw Bob and Ben switch instruments, a name change, and a great increase in speed and intensity. The idea was to play pissed off, aggressive, no bullshit HC/Punk with personally political lyrics. Musically the influences drew from bands as diverse as Confuse, Siege, Larm, Crass, Swans, Infest, SSD, Pandemonium, Icons of Filth, Gauze, Septic Death, Discharge, Anti-Cimex etc. The first show happening within a few months, April of 1991 with Born Aginst and Rorschach. From then on no looking back. The band started and continues with a strong "Do It Yourself" work ethic, booking their own shows and releasing their own records. Over the years Dropdead has played hundreds of shows, recorded two LP's, some splits and EP's, toured the  USA and Europe numerous times, as well as Australia and Japan. 2019 will see a new LP as well as rematered reissues of all recorded materiala as well.
