Deadguy are a band that — one would hope — needs no introduction, but here we are, after the release of the seminal “Fixation on a Coworker”! Deadguy was a fairly early metalcore band hailing from New Jersey that formed after the breakup of fellow New Jersey metalcorers Rorschach (guitarist Keith Huckins of Rorschach was a founding member of Deadguy). Rorschach were a pretty legendary band themselves, being one of the first (along with Ohio natives Integrity) to pioneer the genre of metalcore. Deadguy, however, managed to sound remarkably modern (while still being in the old-school “metallic hardcore” style), and were a key innovator of the mathcore genre, arguably being the first

mathcore band. Between the breakneck, thrash-inspired

riffs, the abrupt changes of metre, and the use of dissonant, screeching chords often formed around tritones, Deadguy paved the way for mathcore. Suffice it to say that without Deadguy, there would be no The Dillinger Escape Plan (also from New Jersey) and no Botch.

“Fixation on a Coworker” was the last Deadguy release featuring founding members Keith Huckins and Tim Singer, who departed from the band to form Kiss It Goodbye (also mathcore/metalcore) with former Rorschach members Thom Rusnack and Andrew Gormley.

An official Deadguy documentary is slated to be released in late . You can watch the trailer (released ) on YouTube here. There is also an associated website here: (archived).

notes on the distributions

“Whitemeat” is sometimes listed as “White Meat”.

On some releases, “Screamin' With The Deadguy Quintet” does not list the final track, “Prosthetic Head”.
