Post Mortem - Post Mortem (band) - Netflix

Not to be confused with the German death metal band Postmortem. Post Mortem was an American death metal band, formed in 1982 in suburban Boston. They formed when the members of the band were still in high school. The band rehearsed every day, often rushing home to write music after classes. John McCarthy penned the personal songs while drummer Rick McIver wrote the gore lyrics. John Alexander helped write most of the songs. “Our whole concept was that we honestly didn’t give a fuck. That’s why we’re lumped in with punk rock as well as metal,” McCarthy said, adding: “It’s much better to piss off people who think they’re pissed off than to piss off your grandma or your mother or your father.” Post Mortem’s debut album, Coroner's Office, was released in 1986. Coroner's Office continues to find new listeners and is now as remembered for its unusual styling and flirtation with jazz and punk. The album proved very influential, as it brought musical experimentation common in metal among bands like Cephalic Carnage and The Dillinger Escape Plan. The band consists of John McCarthy (vocals), John Alexander (guitar), Mark Kelley (bass), and Rick “Ricky Magic” McIver (drums). Contrary to popular belief, Post Mortem were not named after the Slayer song, which was released in 1986. Post Mortem helped pioneer the underground subgenre of death metal. Many metal bands have acknowledged the influence of Post Mortem, like Cianide, Grief (who covered the entire Coroner's Office album), Disharmonic Orchestra, who covered “(It's Just) A Thought”, and Anal Cunt (who covered Post Mortem's “1066”).
