THE RED DEATH BIOGRAPHY
The Red Death are a death metal/hardcore band from Bath, New York. Formed in 2002 after the demise of Another Day Forgotten by singer Paul Hamblin, guitarist Josh Williammee, and drummer Graham Mitchell, the original lineup was rounded out by guitarist Brian Van Gelder and bassist Karl Janovec.THE RED DEATH GENRES
In 2003 Bryan left the band and was replaced by Nate Golia, a guitarist from nearby Rochester, NY, formerly of another metal band, Warblade (band) . That summer they embarked on their first short tour with Virginia screamo band Shadows and the Silence. Shadows and the Silence's bass player was a Bath native, Dominic Mastronunzio, and he would replace Karl the following summer. While on a three-week tour with New Jersey's With Resistance, the band began speaking with Metal Blade Records and would sign with them the following fall; however, Nate would leave the band to concentrate on school and be replaced by Auburn, NY's Aaron Conti, formerly of If Hope Dies.
After signing to Metal Blade, the band embarked on several extended, full-U.S. tours with bands such as From a Second Story Window, The Acacia Strain, Undying, Through the Eyes of the Dead, and Accursed Dawn.
With new bassist Jordan Rathbun, the band has recorded a new demo for prospective labels.
