Dead Alive is:
- Count Scapula – Screaming Skull
- Manthing – Guitar-things
- Dedman Walken – Zom-Bass
- Dead-Beat – Wraith of perpetual blast beats
Risen out of the dark heart of Nashville, Tennessee – Dead Alive is the metal brainchild of the band’s skeletal corpse paint-wearing frontman, “Count Scapula.” Inspired by the theatrics of performers such as King Diamond, Alice Cooper, Gwar, and The Misfits to name a few – Dead Alive brings a fun, and intense performance to the stage.
With a love of all things metal and camp horror, Dead Alive plays a blend of styles including Thrash, Death, Doom, and Black metal – bringing a varied yet cohesive style to their music.
In 2021 they released their debut album, Rise of the Skeleton Army which peaked to No. 51 on Apple’s “Breaking New Metal” Playlist. The album was received well by the metalheads who unearthed it calling it “Unique yet comfortingly familiar,” being compared to bands like Slayer, Anthrax, Skeletonwitch, Black Sabbath, and Carcass.
Dead Alive has a goal in mind – to help cultivate a metal presence in music city and turn Nashville into Thrashville!
