The Deep Eynde is a Deathrock/Punk band from Los Angeles, California. Most known for their past theatrical live performances (which included colored plastic wrap outfits, real blood, fake abortions, live insects, worms, and an octopus suit) the band has grown in their style to encompass Punk, Gothic, Deathrock, Psychobilly, and Rock 'n Roll. The band has since been an influence for the second wave of Gothic Bands around the world including Cinema Strange and The Phantom Limbs.
The Deep Eynde began in 1990 with singer Fate Fatal and locals at an old drug house in the San Fernando Valley. The Deep Eynde was put on pause in 1992 when Fate was asked to join a band named Kittens for Christian, whom he took from a dull stage show to complete anarchy. He recorded "Bless The Worm Kisses" and "Flowers" with them while still keeping The Deep Eynde alive in the studio by making demos.
After leaving Kittens for Christian in 1995, Fate began The Deep Eynde again with new members and recorded the first full length album City Lights. Released by Apollyon Records in Germany, it was a dark mix reflecting their influences of Siouxsie and the Banshees & Bauhaus. They continued to tour across the US.
After living with the anarcho-punk band Naked Aggression for many years, their sound began to become more aggressive. With the addition of guitarist Daniel deLeon (of The Insaints and Rezurex) and drummer Hal Satan (of Penis Flytrap and 45 Grave), the second album Suicide Drive was released. It featured a duet with Gitane Demone called Alone Again, the lyrics made from a poem of the late Rozz Williams (whose ashes are scattered at Runyon Canyon Park, where current Deep Eynde guitarist, Stress, teaches yoga).
The Deep Eynde's third album Shadowland had caught the eye of skateboard legend Duane Peters and his record label Disaster Records, a subsidiary of BOMP!USA records. In late 2004, the first American release of the Deep Eynde hit the shelves all over the United States, making The Deep Eynde's biggest mark for an extreme Gothic band onto Punk territory.
Shadowland was picked up by People Like You Records in Europe in 2005 and immediately made the charts due to previous promotion in Europe. They began touring outside the United States more with concentration on European festivals.
In 2007, The Deep Eynde released their followup album Bad Blood, which was also released on People Like You records. They joined the Hellnights tour in Europe with The Spook, the Crimson Ghosts and Shadow Reichenstein.
In 2010, The Deep Eynde released Spell*Bound on Cargo Records (Europe), which was a throwback to their original organic sound. The band toured Europe for its release, with the highlight, a headlining position during the Wave Gothic Treffen 2010.
Currently the band is working on their next release, which will be a series of vinyl only releases, with the first to be released in spring 2012.
