The dead area is the area where I was born and raised. I guess you understand that not a lot happened there.
In the early nineties I made an attempt by make it for me and the few other thrashers, punx and metalheads a better place and started organizing gigs and festivals, this lasted till the late nineties.
Besides the hand full of people always involved in the 'scene' no other bands, 'zines or 'what ever' evolved from this period.. bummer!
This metal band 'Zymotic' had a song called 'dead area'. The funny equivalent of the bay area made sense and since than this area is called the DEAD AREA.
I just made it kind of a trade mark!
