A bond was made, and music was played, very loud and aggressively. The South Bay music scene was alive with diversity. Ded Neyber was born from the elements of thrash to melodic metal. They didn't care what people thought, and still don't. Their views on society, reflect in their hard-hitting music!.........Blood, Sweat and Bruises!...and never take SH%T from anybody.
