1) hardcore punk band from Japan http://www.myspace.com/deride1989opg
2) Deride started in the fall of 1995 in Bergen, Norway. The band was originally Børre Michelsen - vocals, Ole Walaunet - guitars, Johan Alme - bass & backing vocals and Kjetil Greve - drums. The 11th of May 1996, Deride had their first gig at the local Rock Pub 'Garage', where they impressed everybody with their raw, untamed force. The press described the gig as one of the best debuts ever seen in Bergen.
Over the next two years Deride did more live shows both in Bergen and out of town. The biggest highlight of the live stage was perhaps when Deride was an opening act for the Swedish metal band Entombed at 'Hulen' in Bergen. Of other highlights was the release of the self-financed mini-cd, simply entitled 'Deride'. This consisted of four tunes: 'Never Again', 'Wardust', 'Self Deceive' and 'Holocaust', and received great reviews in almost every magazine that reviewed it, no matter if the magazines were from Norway or elsewhere in the world.
The cd has been aired lots of times in different Norwegian radio-channels, and by some occasions in Brazilian and Chilean radio. Amongst others this lead to a phone call from a Norwegian record-label, some e-mails from labels worldwide, and lots of e-mails from fans all over the world. After a while the personal interests in the band began to point out in different directions which resulted in Alme and Michelsen left the band, leaving Walaunet and Greve without a singer & a bass player. By fall of 1999, they found a new singer; Frediablo. He was living 300 km away from the rest of the boys so they kept sending demos back and forth writing new material. A 3 tracks demo landed them a record deal with New York based record label, The Music Cartel.
Deride recorded and released their debut album " Scars Of Time " in June 2001. The guys decided to do the album as a 3-piece. It received great reviews all over the world! In June 2002, Deride recorded their 2nd album, "First Round Knockout", released in Oct/Nov through TMC. Worldwide. This album was also recorded as a 3-piece, and received killer reviews. The band had various bass-players joining them on stage during this period but never settled for a fulltime member.
In May 2003 the band decided to take a break and focus on other musical projects.
After a 3 year break the band is now reunited and ready kick ass!! Joining Ole and Kjetil is vocalist Pr-Helge, and bassplayer Marius; all based in Bergen, Norway. The band finally has a full and steady line-up again, ready to destroy!
