    Deceased is a death/thrash metal band from Virginia, that has attained a dedicated, though cult following throughout a lengthy recording andlivecareer. Founded in 1984, by drummer and vocalist King Fowley, the first band to sign Relapse Records, they released four full albumsthroughthe label, along with a number of EPs, demos and re-releases of early demos. Leaving Relapse Records in 2003 to sign to ThrashCorner, theband continues to release material to this day. Their sound centers around the powerhouse drumming and horror lyrics barked,sometimesnarrated vocals of Fowley, telling tales of zombies and classic works of horror from The Twilight Zone to the works of Edgar AllanPoe ("DarkChilling Heartbeat" retells "The Tell-Tale Heart" on their Supernatural Addiction album), while the twin guitars often move quicklyfrom riff to riff- the band's songs typically work through several time signature and tempo changes. From their fairly primitive origins, while theircore soundhas always retained an almost punk/hardcore edge to its rawness, Deceased became more and more ambitious in terms of their useof melodyin their progressive, lengthy thrash guitar workouts. This transition in their career was marked by the release of a full zombie conceptLP,"Fearless Undead Machines", with cover art by painter Wes Benscoter and spoken samples from George A. Romero's "..of the Dead" films,aswell as the band's own attempts to stage classic horror monologue and storytelling. In 2006 the band left Thrash Corner Records andstartedtheir own label in 2008 called Shrieks from the Hearse. 2009 sees the band returning with a new album called 'Surreal Overdose' onthis label aswell as PATAC Records. « hide
