DEAD BY DAY:
is the world's foremost horror ensemble. Dark, somber melodies and
pulverizing rhythms in addition to complex time changes are all
embodiments of every memorable deadbyday composition. The unique
style is created by combining different elements of all metal- namely
traditional, black, power, and death with industrial, gothic, and
classical music. Song themes deal with both real life and imagined
horror, historic events, the human psyche, the impact of religion,
bizarre subject matter, as well as paying tribute to great artists,
composers, and innovators.
state-of-the-art special makeup effects are utilized to create an
ungodly and unforgettable carnival / horror show, certain to leave
a lasting impression on anyone in attendance. deadbyday strives
to create something entirely new and original, both morbidly beautiful
and explicitly obscene- a twisted, surreal, and uncompromisingly
honest reflection on our lives...
was the ugly stepchild of a band called The Krypt. While The Krypt
was primarily thrash metal with keyboards and a huge stage show
of demons and gore, deadbyday was to be more orchestral and haunting.
First, the vocal style changed, not just one singer anymore but
four. That is one of our trade mark sounds, the demonic choir.
theme of vintage deadbyday was based in vampire lore and the gothic
look of the Universal and Hammer films. Everything was in black
and white with shades of gray. We were based in the Washington D.C.
area and were booked primarily with Goth bands but were too heavy
for that scene and we couldn't fit in the death metal scene anymore
so we were this bastard group floating around the nations death
got a gig making monsters in Horrorwood and the rest of the band
moved out over the next year and a half. During this time we reflected
and decided that this more laid back form of the band was not true
to what we were. So back came the Demonic visage that dwells within!
The looks changes all the time, but The Krypt had a big influence
on our look and sound. We were once again in full color and letting
loose that inner rage. We could not confine it anymore.
far as the different characters go, the individual members have
a big influence on the look, and sometimes it is an homage to a
horror great. Our look will change again, but only slightly, as
we have really gelled. This form is that of deadbyday, horror to
delight the depraved.
