TWO IDENTICAL IDIOTS WHOSE INTRODUCTION TO METAL WAS IRON MAIDEN'S "LIVE AFTER DEATH" TOUR VIDEO.  AFTER THAT, THE DREAM WAS TO WRITE MUSIC. MUSIC THAT MADE US FEEL ABOVE ALL OTHER WORLDLY  FEELINGS.  MUSIC THAT AS SOON AS IT WAS HEARD BROUGHT ONLY TWO WORDS INTO THE LISTENERS HEAD: FUCKING METAL!!!!! BUT WE HAD TO LEARN THE WAY THAT ALMOST EVERY MUSICIAN MUST LEARN.  WE HAD TO PLAY COVERS.


IN 2010, WE DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO STOP PLAYING "SEEK AND DESTROY" AND OUR BUTCHERED VERSION OF "THE TROOPER" AND START WRITING SOME ORIGINAL MUSIC.  SINCE THAT DAY, WE HAVE BEEN WRITING MUSIC THAT GETS YOU GOING FASTER THAN A AUCTIONEER ON CRYSTAL METH. 


BUT THERE WAS A SLIGHT PROBLEM: NO SINGER!!!!  ENTER JOEY DALO!!  JOEY'S STYLE OF WRITING AND DEMANDING STAGE PRESENCE BOOSTED US TO A LEVEL ABOVE ALL OTHER LOCAL BANDS.  WE STOOD OUT.  YOU CAME TO OUR SHOW AND THAT'S WHAT YOU GOT- A FUCKING SHOW!!!!


WE DEBUTED OUR MUSIC WITH A SELF-TITLED DEMO FEATURING 5 SONGS:

DO YOUR WORST

VENGEANCE INCARNATE

LAST OBSESSION

WORDS OF DISTRUST

THE BOTTOM LINE


OVER THE NEXT YEAR, WE PLAYED ANYWHERE WE COULD.  WE WON A FEW BATTLE OF THE BANDS.  GOT FEATURED ON A SEGMENT ON LOS ANGELES' MOST LISTENED TO RADIO STATION 95.5 KLOS!!!  DURING THIS TIME WE NEVER STOPPED WRITING AND DEBUTING SONGS LIVE.  BUT WE NEEDED MORE THAN A 5 SONG DEMO. WE NEEDED AN ALBUM. 


IN SEPTEMBER OF 2013, AFTER BEING SOUGHT OUT BY ONE OF METAL'S MOST NOTORIOUS PRODUCERS, BILL METOYER, WE AGREED TO DO OUR FIRST ALBUM TOGETHER.  "INDOCTRINATOR".  THE ALBUM RELEASED IN FEBRUARY OF 2014. THE RELEASE SHOW FOR THE ALBUM WAS A WET DREAM FOR US.  THE HOUSE OF BLUES ON THE SUNSET STRIP (RIP). 500 PEOPLE ON A TUESDAY NIGHT. AND 4 IDIOTS WHO MADE THE DREAM COME TRUE.  UNREAL TO THIS DAY.


THE ALBUM HAS SOLD ALL OVER THE WORLD.  CHINA. RUSSIA. AFRICA. CANADA.  MEXICO. FLORIDA.  EVERYWHERE!!!!


IN MAY OF 2015, WE TOURED THE WEST COAST FROM SEATTLE TO SAN DIEGO.  BOISE, SALT LAKE CITY.  10 DAYS AND 10 SHOWS.


IN AUGUST OF 2015, WE UNFORTUNATELY DECIDED TO PART WAYS WITH OUR SINGER, JOEY.  AND THAT LEAVES US HERE.


HAVING A DREAM AND ACTUALLY LIVING IT IS AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER.  IT'S ALMOST UNREAL.  BRAIN DEAD HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN A FORCE OF DREAMS.  WE WILL NEVER STOP.  TO ALL THE FANS WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US THROUGH OUR JOURNEY, FROM THE VERY DEPTHS OF OUR HEARTS, WE THANK YOU.  IT'S BECAUSE OF YOU THAT WE ARE HERE.  AND WE WILL NEVER STOP.


CHEERZ AND BEERZ
