Deadguy - Fixation On A Coworker

Continuing with the metalcore theme, here's Deadguy, who gets namedropped a lot in conjunction with a few other bands but definitely had a unique sound from the staples of the genre. This album came out on Victory(!) and was anything but characteristic of the "Victory Sound" at the time. Heavy later-era Black Flag influence, esp. in the vocals, and bands like Human Remains (who shared members) and Dillinger Escape Plan clearly took some cues from these guys. A term that was once used was "chaotic hardcore". This is their only real full-length, afterward two members split to form Kiss It Goodbye (two Deadguy EPs were later recorded with other members).

(Victory, 1995)
