Biography

Dead Jesus is a melodic death metal band formed in Edmonton, Canada in 1998.The band has become notorious for its live performance which often involves blood and viscera being hurled into the audience. Dead Jesus derives its name from the core belief that all organized religions are detrimental to human progress, and should be laid to rest.

Dead Jesus was formed in 1998 by core members Evilglen (guitar & vox), Org666 (vox) and Lord Bedingfield (bass). Being unable to decide upon a full-time fourth member, the band played early shows with no drummer at all, often presenting the crowd with an un-manned kit upon which audience members were encouraged to play along. After a few months however, Dead Jesus was introduced to Alex Macintosh, and recorded a four song demo entitled Into Mourning. Due to the band’s abject poverty, the release was limited to a couple of hundred casettes, but copies circulated rapidly by word of mouth with at least one copy surfacing in New York City.

In 1999, Dead Jesus bore witness to the breakup of local competitors Perceptual Distortion, and seized the opportunity to replace Macintosh with drummer Trevor Loney. With this adjustment made, the band entered Powersound Studios and recorded their full-length debut, When Your Soul Is The Sickness, featuring raw, albeit spirited takes of such classics as Roadkill, A.F. and Mortuary. The success of the release earned Dead Jesus opening slots for Cannibal Corpse, Incantation, Cryptopsy,and Napalm Death.
