Biography
Dead Serenade was a death/doom metal band based out of the Chicago/N.W. Indiana area scene in the first half of the 1990s.

Started circa 1991, the band was the brainchild of vocalist/guitarist Jerry Koziol, who at the time was known for fronting the Indiana based death/thrash outfit Lethal Injection, and as of 1991 had joined the ranks of Chicago’s Contagion as lead guitarist. Together with longtime friend, guitarist Randy White (ex- Estranged Havoc), they devised a plan to create a project that would draw influence and inspiration from the slow heavy bands that were popping up in the underground such as Paradise Lost, Autopsy, and Cathedral, while also incorporating aspects of other various bands like Bolt Thrower, Trouble, St. Vitus, and Winter. Shortly after the intiial conception and a couple of nebulous songs being written, they recruited lead guitarist Larry Roberts (ex-Neurotoxin, currently in Novembers Doom) and drummer John Kocon (ex-Diabolicy). This lineup proceeded to rehearse and write songs for the next two years, during which time they released a five song rehearsal demo done on a 4-track recorder.
