Dead Head was formed in 1989 in the Zwolle/Kampen area in The Netherlands. Straight from the start the band portrayed a hard working ethic and released several demos and did a ton of live shows. The band also released two full length albums before they started working on their soon-to-be-classic third album ‘Kill Division’. Years of preparation and months of fine-tuning the songs shaped each one of them into a solid brick of concrete. This album was the epitome of brutal riffs, pounding drums, aggressive vocals and finally accompanied by a production that was able to compete with the big names in the thrash metal genre. This neck-breaking, gut-wrenching piece of ungodly art shook the scene but was unfortunately met with lacking promotion and a decent distribution.
The album was hailed for the new standard it set but sadly only the few and the proud were able to find out about it. Luckily in 2020 ‘Kill Division’ will be re-issued on 2-CD and LP by Petrichor so the world can re-acquaint itself with this masterpiece of sheer brutality and refined haunting melodies. Dead Head is by no means a blast from the past as the band will release a new album in 2021.
