Screaming vocals are set to discordant guitars by New Jersey-based hardcore band Deadguy. Named after the late comedian John Candy, the group adopted an extremely dark and somber approach with such tunes as "Running With Scissors," "Die With Your Mask On," and "Makeshift Atomsmasher." Despite losing their two chief songwriters, one who sang lead and the other who played guitar, they reorganized with second guitarist Pops assuming lead vocals and two guitarists added shortly after releasing their first full-length album, Fixation on a Coworker, in 1995. Although this revamped lineup released an EP, Screamin' With the Deadguy Quintet, featuring such tunes as "Human Pig" and "(Escape From) The Fake Clink," in 1996, the hard-edged sound of the original band was missed. Formed in New Jersey in June 1996, Deadguy was originally comprised of former members of Rorschach, Lifetime, and No Escape. ~ Craig Harris
