Dream Death were from Pittsburgh PA., and played a wicked raw and heavy style of Doom metal, that was very much influenced by Celtic Frost, and Hellhammer. Many of the songs are 5 mins-7 mins long. This was the demo that proceeded the bands "journey into mystery" LP(1987). The drummer later went on to play with Cathedral, and Penace.
This upload is from a 21 year old demo tape that was stored away in my basement for well over a decade, so the sound quality is not the best. Still well worth downloading.
This was a random tape that I ended up doing a tape trade with some dude back then. Its unreal to think about how we used to find/discover new underground music without things like the internet. It really was all about underground print 'zine's and word of mouth.


  1. track 1 seems to be missing

  2. yup...left it off cos the sound is sorta fucked up.

  3. Hey Nate, thanks for all the uploads - definitely missed out on a lot of the good shit when I was in metalhead denial. And thanks for Devoid of Faith - we played some shows together in CT in the 90s, DOF was definitely one of my favorite bands of that time period.


  4. some cool underground eighties doom metal , thanks man - timo

  5. Hello I just entered before I have to leave to the airport, it's been very nice to meet you, if you want here is the site I told you about where I type some stuff and make good money (I work from home): here it is

  6. Buck, thanks for the kind words.. What band were you in? We played CT it seems every other week.
    the Pist, Brutally Familiar, Hail Of Rage, etc
    great memories...

  7. I was in React, Hail of Rage (when we went to shit, after the first EP) and a half-assed post-Deformed Conscience band called Those Poor Bastards. Diallo too, but that was far later.

    Definitely a good time period for hardcore in the Northeast.

  8. if you like this check out the first album by the the dream death successors penance - the road less travelled - timo

  9. The link seems fucked dude...

  10. Wow, this is a trip.... I used to have one of those fanzines back in the day. Dan from Pittsburgh's Doomwatch used to write occasional articles for us. He sent me this demo way back when. Great to see this stuff still survives online.

  11. holy shit...DoomWatch, another blast from the past.

  12. Man, thanx for you uploading this stuff...
    But, I cant download it... File doesnt exist!
    Please, check this problem.
    Sadly, the same shit with TANKARD - Zombie Attack LP.
