DEATHPILE 1995-2004 R.I.P.

Updated 7.5.21 – Don Poe has posted three early (sloppy) Deathpile videos on YouTube. I believe they were all shot by Jeff Pero.

My only solo Deathpile set (very short). I was opening for Death Squad on his first US tour: https://youtu.be/c3gFNb0MYB0

When Thomas Garrison (Control) was in the band and we somehow got pro lights. We were opening for Xorcist, believe it or not: https://youtu.be/yQy5zpjnigA

When “Back on the Prowl” era Deathpile (Brian D’Agosta and Don Poe) opened for Death Squad on a second US tour. Also you can probably spot RRRon up front.: https://youtu.be/BbGihVFON1g


The Noisextra Podcast 11.20.19 episode features DEATHPILE’s “Ne Plus Ultra.”


The first pressing of DEATHPILE’s “G.R.” album is sold out. You can get copies from discogs.com (Click Here). There are plans for a re-press but no release date as of yet.


“G.R.” as well as the collection “Exhumed” are also available to stream / download from bandcamp here. You can buy “Exhumed” on cassette from discogs here.


“G.R.” has been included in the book “Gathering of the Tribe: Music and Heavy Conscious Creation” by Mark Goodall. The book features a comprehensive review of the album “G.R.” that includes an original interview with me. You can learn more about it or pick up a copy from Amazon (Click for Link).


There is another extensive interview with me by Scott Candey (Gruntsplatter) in the recent book “Fight Your Own War: Power Electronics and Noise Culture.” This publication is also available through Amazon (Click for Link).


You can also read an interview with me about “G.R.” over at medium.com.


In non-“G.R.” related news, you can order the gatefold double LP version of “Final Confession” (w/ all new art and a digital download) from Discogs here.


I will close by saying this (since I get asked regularly): Yes, I have appeared live a couple of times doing Deathpile songs (once at No Fun Fest and a few times as a “surprise” during other performances). No, I will not be doing that again or resurrecting Deathpile for new recordings or live performances. I appreciate your enthusiasm for this project but my head is in a different place now and I’d prefer to leave Deathpile in the grave.

Thank you. -Jonathan Canady
