Dead Horse is a thrash-core band from Houston, Texas, which was active in the 1980s and 1990s and again active in 2014. Over seven years of touring and recording, Dead Horse developed a style influenced by thrash and death metal as well as hardcore and punk. Dead Horse also incorporated elements of country music and Texas culture, on songs such as “Hank” from Horsecore and “Chiggers” from Feed Me.

Their first releases, including their debut album, Horsecore: An Unrelated Story That’s Time Consuming, were released independently, while they had one nationally distributed LP, Peaceful Death and Pretty Flowers, released through the independent record label Big Chief, distributed by Metal Blade, and manufactured and distributed by Warner Bros. Records. They released the self-financed EP Feed Me in 1994, which was intended as a demo for Interscope Records. The EP failed to garner a major label deal, and primary songwriter Michael Haaga left the group. Dead Horse released the EP BOIL (ing) on Beermoment Music in 1996 after Haaga left, and Scott Sevall form Force Fed took over Hagga’s position.

Haaga went on to form The Demonseeds, and played bass guitar on the first album of Superjoint Ritual. He also released a solo LP, with the backing of Houston-based musicians, entitled “The Plus and Minus Show”.

    Arguments for not nuking Texas: 1) Dead Horse. 2) Roky Erickson. 3) Geto Boys. Townes van Zandt is dead or he'd be 4).

    These guys were awesome. They had a fairly unique style and sounded great the two times I saw them perform. I picked up their last studio recording (Boiling) a few years ago and it's a shame they aren't around anymore. One of my favorite bands for sure... too bad they were overlooked by most.

    Loved these guys back in the day, and the music still holds up now. One of the best live metal shows I've seen. Shame they never "made it".
