dead horse

deadhorse are the founding members of Houston's underground scene during the late 1980's & early 90's, deadhorse mixed thrash with local forms of music to produce aggravated, interesting and increasingly literate crossover material. Texas Heavy Metal will never disappoint and deadhorse will remain an institution to that tradition. They are heavy, crazy fast, locked on to blow your mind, to cut your breath and drive you insane. deadhorse has two basic ingredients which make them so special; great drums faster than a tornado and awesome bass sounds, mixed together with speed and rhythms that augment an explosive style deemed "horsecore". You may feel skeptical about it, but once you’re auditable mind comprehends and fathoms the addiction that drives the "horsecore", you will understand what Texans have been proud of and graving for the past 20 years. The shock hook jazzy rhythms are omnipresent in the middle of full throttle chaotic hardcore-thrash metal madness, the calm decayed nerves in you will throb for more grind core riffs just as the mayhem and the madness will attack your cranium again and again . deadhorse is well regarded for habitually incorporating elements of country music and Texas culture, most noticeably in the tune “Hank” from the 1989 debut release Horsecore and "Chiggers" from the rare Feed Me demo. Over eight years of touring and recording, demonstartes that deadhorse has developed a compositionally complex version of the alternative thrashcore death metal, best demonstrated on their Major Label release Peaceful Death and Pretty Flowers. An undercurrent of mantic-music and psychosocial humor that persists and co-exists in many of their songs, Boil(ing) abounds "What a Beautiful Day" for "My Dog the Prophet", though it is often juxtaposed with more serious work like the menacing meditation on religion, society and life and "Peaceful Death" . deadhorse has the speed, urgency, and the brutality to compete with all the legends of metal. Finely crafted elements that make them standout and in a genre that does not often breed originality or creative brilliance, their recognition stands as the Lone Star State, independent. Gigantic, brick-heavy riffs blast out of those down-tuned guitars, sometimes sludge-ridden, sometimes razor-sharp and quick. The drums and bass keep the blast beats and doom-like tendencies alternating while they hold the tunes together, often while the two guitars go off on their seemingly drunken, swaggering tendencies with in the deadhorsecore! Current Line-up: Greg Martin(Guitar), Ronny Guyote(Drums&Vox)), Allen Price(Bass&Vox),Scott Sevall(Guitar&Vox) and Mike Argo(Lead Vocals)
