100 DEAD formerly 100DEADRABBITS!!! is a Nintendocore band from Orange County, USA. They combine many elements of death metal, metalcore, trance, aggrotech/industrial, breakbeat, and 8-bit, fusing them together. Many of their songs are based on some form of geek culture, such as video games and viral videos, but also include more serious, underlying topics in each song. They have gained a lot of buzz in the underground music community and continually growing and refining their sound.
In June 2007, 100DEADRABBITS!!! was started as a solo cybergrind project by Robert Robinson out of boredom. He released one demo a few weeks into the project, called "The American Wet Dream", before being joined about a month later by Erick Lopez. With the addition of Erick, also came a heavy use of synths, and 100DR started creating their signature sound. After two more demo releases in 2007 ("Do Reploids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and "Teeth"), and still not satisfied with the sound of programmed guitar and bass, 100DR added friends Kurt Swensson (ex-guitar 07-08) and Eduardo Ruelas (bass) to the lineup. Only a few songs were written and recorded with Kurt before he left the band, after a mutual decision. He was replaced by Steve Lamas in the fall of 2008. 100DR then recorded their first demo featuring real guitars, Guardians. They began play shows in December 2008 and have been playing regularly in Southern California ever since. They are currently working on their first full-length album, called Rapture, estimated to be released in late 2009.
Update: The band never got around to a late release in 2009 but went on hiatus until 2011 when they included new members Emilio and Will to their line up. With the new additions, the writing style started to change with an actual drummer and since both the drummer and guitarist having previously been in other death metal bands together such as Manual Abortion, Denied Existence and Consecration of a Grave. Now in 2014 the band has changed its named, shortening it to 100 Dead for more of a mature name. An EP is expected to be released titled "The Phoenix Gloom" which is highly anticipated for many old fans. A single was released and was given good reviews by listeners. Lets see what 2015 holds..
