Although they only released one proper album, Deadguy's influence on the Metalcore genre was massive. The sound that they pioneered on 1995's Fixation on a Coworker has gone on to spawn thousands of imitators. Even bands like The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Botch and Coalesce all got their start emulating Deadguy. It was the We Are the Romans before We Are the Romans. Anyone who was anyone wanted to sound like Deadguy. With its complex dissonant arrangements, superb musicianship and sharp and powerful vocals Fixation on a Coworker remains just as cripplingly heavy as it did when it first came out. If you like Metalcore, all of your favorite bands have made a living ripping this off for years. Check it out.
