Top-Neo-Batcave from London
Our story starts here with a lost soul, Stich, who kicked around the streets of Salt Lake City (Utah) with unhallowed bands such as the vicious Tragic Black and the mysterious Hollow Tongue, where he made his dark presence felt.
Masking another move in the early part of 2004, Stich gave a howling birth to the first incarnation of All Gone Dead. Pushed by his insatiable hunger for music writing, he began to experiment with different musical arenas. Combining his enthusiasm and extraverted personality, Stich began to write, and the madness swelled. With a threatening growl, Stich was pushing his solo project into a band. Slowly, he began shaping and creating All Gone Dead.
With the birth of an unusual London spring in 2004, Stich,
in his wanderings came across, MarkAbre,
who joined Stich in his musical quest. As the seasons
have started their march again; All Gone Dead kept evolving
and encountered yet another lost soul, Darlin'
Grave, as this beauty is known.
another birth and burning ambition this trio became a quartet when another
lost soul filled the void, MikeMihai,
with his musical knowledge became the fourth member and guitar player
of All Gone Dead. Joining the crusade to pursue dreams
in a disorienting theatrical display of shattered reflections. After All
Gone Dead’s first 6 gigs tension began to build. MarkAbre
no longer shared the same visions and musical interests as the other All
Gone Dead members and there was a sense of distance that ended
up with MarkAbre being removed from the band in the spring
of 2005. Stich, Darlin’ Grave and MikeMihai kept
working on their quest taking shows from the United Kingdom onto mainland
Europe still pressing forward towards their diabolic scheme. Stich, Darlin'
Grave and MikeMihai went on to recording their first 3 track
demo (Conceiving The Subversion)at
MikeMihai's very own cave "home studio" and
it was released in May 2005. Their home made demo (Conceiving The Subversion)
got them voted best unsigned goth band in Germany by Gothic Magazine and
had several other appearances in other media organizations.All
Gone Dead started to get their name spread. As the clock hands
ticked and the countdown was launched, MikeMihai decided
to step down from All Gone Dead for personal reasons.
MikeMihai is now in the works or running his own studio
and still a part of the All Gone Dead family.
as these two puppets were finishing up "Fallen
& Forgotten" they were contacted by Strobelight
Records and offered a record deal. All
Gone Dead felt it was a great opportunity and they joined
the Strobelight family.
All Gone Dead then began
to book their European Spring tour hitting many of the different European
countries. For their live performances Steve
Pollytrama has joined their madness. coming from such
bands as Chaos UK and
The Narcissus Pool. Steve
has a hunger for the chaos, mayhem and road life.
