Deadguy: Fixation on a Coworker 12" (new)

Victory Records


Deadguy's long out-of-print 1995 Victory Records debut and lone full-length, Fixation On A Co-Worker is nothing short of ear bleeding murder core bent on neural destruction. Their use of fast off time, bone grinding rhythms and off kilter song structures separated this New Jersey band from the pack right out of the gate. Their fusion of hardcore and noise kickstarted the 'noisecore' trend in the mid-90s and still sounds as dangerous, ferocious, and extreme as ever today.

"Fixation was not only a metal/hardcore benchmark that dripped with blatant negativity and confrontational anger, but the jagged rhythms provided by drummer Dave Rosenberg and bassist Tim Naumann [AKA Pops], Chris Corvino [AKA Crispy] and Keith Huckins’ slash ‘n’ burn guitars, and Tim Singer’s hellish vocals made it feel like that fucking building, if not your entire existence, was about to come crashing down around you.

"Fixation’s sales figures may not be on par with those of most of our other Hall of Fame inductees, but the album’s influence is inarguable, as it brought a new musical freedom, cantankerous attitude and irreverent aesthetic to extreme music, paving the way for much of the tech/metal/noisecore of the last decade. For that, we welcome Fixation to our hallowed Hall. - Kevin Stewart-Panko / Decibel Hall of Fame
