Dead in the Bay 2015: Bay Area Underground Metal Compilation May Just Be the Best of the Year!

Three awesome dudes from the Oakland-based grindcore band Infinite Waste (namely madmen Jamison, Kevin, and Matt) were rad enough to have the brilliant idea to put together a compilation of Bay Area-based bands to give out for free at this year’s first edition of California Deathfest this weekend in Oakland, to show visitors and outsiders attending the fest how awesome the local scene is. So months ago, they set out to accomplish the project, reaching out to bands and breaking their backs to put together this all-star team. The result went beyond what anyone would have imagined: a double disk, for over thirty bands, each one bringing to the table their own brand of extreme metal, and materializing in the end one of the best underground metal comps to see the light all year. Ranging from gridncore to death metal, to doom, crust, black metal, ambient, hardcore and noise, in this comp there is pretty much everything your metal-heart could dream of and pretty much all of the Bay’s best bands showcasing their craft all in one place. Som examples? Brainoil, Vastum, Cyanic, Badr Vogu… The list goes on and on. You can read Jamison, Kevin and Matt’s intent about this amazing project here. Below is the mind-blowing lineup of Dead in the Bay 2015, and if you plan on attending CDF 2015 make sure you pick up a copy (CD) for FREE from the dudes or get the digital version as “pay-what-you-want” from Bandcamp. And of course, enjoy the almost two hours of endless heaviness coming out of this comp!
