Post Mortem (Boston band)

Post Mortem (Boston band)

Post Mortem was a death metal band, formed in 1982 in the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts. The band consists of John McCarthy (vocals), John Alexander (guitar), Mark Kelley (bass), and Rick "Ricky Magic" McIver (drums).

One of their trademarks was they never wore any stage costumes. In the Mid 80's, most metal bands wore some sort of gear or accessory when performing live (a bullet belt, nail spikes, wristbands, or bandanas). Post Mortem never did this. Whatever they happened to be wearing that day was what they performed in. This was one of many things that set Post Mortem apart from most metal bands in the mid-80's.

Post Mortem were not named after the Slayer song.

Post Mortem is one of the first death metal bands. [ [http://www.newrenaissancerecords.com/mailorder.cfm New Renaissance Records ] ] [ [http://stonesouppoetry.blogspot.com A Former Roadie Blogger ] ]
