Biography

THERE ARE 2 BANDS WITH THE SAME NAME.

1. Psychopath (USA) is a three-piece death/thrash metal band from St. Louis, Missouri. Though their debut, “Making The Transition” was released in October of 1991, according to the album credits, it was actually recorded in August of 1990. This makes it one of the earliest releases to successfully combine death, thrash and progressive Metal elements, resulting in a sound all its own. Lyrically, songs vary from science-fiction to societal, real world issues. Upon its release, Making The Transition may very well have been hindered by its production and lack of worldwide distribution, but is steadily gaining support and listeners due to the internet age and the realization of its importance in the post-80’s - early 90’s metal landscape.

2. Psychopath (UK) are a real band. Not a very good band. As a matter of fact, they’re an atrocious band. Few who have hear their cover version of ‘A Day In The Life’ will forget it in a hurry. No, nor sleep without the light on either. When you wake screaming in the night, it is PSYCHOPATH you have heard in your dreams.

The band was originally conceived in 1976 by Tim and Clive as a kind of bad joke, and it has seemed funny to them ever since. Most of the early recordings of the band have been lost to a grateful posterity, but with the advent of digital recording techniques, it is possible to make CDs on whcih the band can be heard clearly - paradoxically, this is both the virtue and the great disadvantage of the bloody things.

    Psychopath + Making The Transition = awesomeness. Psychopath + 5 song Advance = ultraawesomeness.

    I think this could have been mixed better. It kind of gives me a slight headache / discomfort to listen to. It sounds pretty solid though. Chalk up another obscure as fuck old school death metal band I guess.

    Yep, someone else given the heads up by foolcrusher - 5 song advance is pretty damn tight. Better than Making the Transition. This band could have been huge...

    Wouldn't have heard of these guys if it wasn't for good sir Foolcrusher there. The 5-song advance demo is very good, sort of like Nocturnus's Thresholds album minus the Kerry King-style wankery(not knocking Mike Davis here, the guy can shred, I just don't like his...randomness). Very good death-thrash, will be checking out the full album!

    MAKING THE TRANSITION by PSYCHOPATH from USA is a great album in metal history, but very underrated.

    PSYCHOPATH from St. Louis, MO USA is the REAL Psychopath and has been around at least since 1990 and played many shows with TIMEGHOUL, read Grevlar's comment below. You were only 1 year old when they started! HAHAHA!!! They've been around as long as you've been alive! Get your own band name.

    PSYCHOPATH from the USA is the only one that matters. Total innovators during that time when metal was turning from thrash to death. MAKING THE TRANSITION kicks total ass, Metro-Shock and Physics are the highlights.

    78 listeners and no shout? Wow, "Making The Transition" is a great debut. Shame they never recorded a sophomore album.
