GOTHIC SLAM – WHO DIED AND MADE YOU GOD – METAL REWIND

gothicslam

Today we take a trip back to 1989 to a thrash band from Hoboken, New Jersey called Gothic Slam. Formed in 1984, Gothic Slam released two albums, Killer Instinct on Torrid Records in 1988 and 1989’s Just A Face In The Crowd album on Epic records which included the song “Who Died And Made You God.”

“Who Died And Made You God” was played regularly on MTV’s Headbangers Ball and the band often played the New York/New Jersey area club circuit at many now defunct classic metal clubs including Studio One in NJ,  Streets in New Rochelle, NY and L’amour’s in Brooklyn, NY. The lineup included Daniel Gomez (Vocals), Klaude Ryker (Guitar), Billy Genese (Guitar), J.T. (Bass) and Dave Chavarri (Drums). Gothic Slam had gained respect of many of their peers and fans because they considered themselves kids in the crowd. Although the band broke up, drummer Dave Chavarri who spent time in M.O.D. and Laaz Rockit went on to form Ill Nino in 1998. Singer Daniel Gomez also had a stint in Ill Nino.
