Deadspot

Deadspot were in my opinion the best of the Philly Metal crossover bands. They definitely had a more metalish sound but retained punk/hardcore ethos. For the demo tape the bass player was Richard Birch who was also the guitarist for Decontrol. One of the Deadspot songs from their tape was on the Philly comp: Disc Pan Hands. Deadspot’s line up featured Larry Horn (listed as The Kid) on drums, Mike Illes on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Paul Juestrich on lead guitar and Larry Leifheit on bass. Besides the Demo Tape I have included their first album Adios Dude and the 7 inch Built-In Pain.
Their 2nd album Built in Pain LP is still available to buy.
I’ve also included a couple of videos I put up on YouTube from Lenny Crunch (RIP) & flyers.

Thanks for the tape files Brett Noise Addiction II

Anthrophobia Early Demos and Founding Fathers (Reunion CD)

Anthrophobia Practice

Anthrophobia has been around a long time with many lineup and a few location changes the one constant member is singer Frank Phobia. These demos and rehearsal represent the beginnings of that band in Reading Pennsylvania through the Philly years. The Rehearsal  and  first Demo were recorded during 1985 in Reading. Soon after that Frank moved to Philadelphia and put together a new line up and recorded a few more demos and a track on Discpan Hands / A Philadelphia Compilation The 1988 demo is still generally Punk based but has a definite metal edge to it. The 1992 demo was recorded when Grunge was king and that style is reflected there. There is the added benefit of Suzi Gardner from L7 on backing vocals.  A couple of these songs were released on a 7″ single. In 2014 the original members of the band reformed as The Anthrophobia Founding Fathers. They played a few reunion shows and released a cd Endgame, I also included pictures at the bottom of this post form the Founding Fathers  show I went to at Young Ones Records in Kutztown. In between and since Anthrophobia has released a lot of great albums you can listen or better yet buy them at their bandcamp page. They have a new EP called Altered States coming out August 14th 2020.
