The mystique and buzz about Dead Water Drowning was kind of hard to understand. I accredit the group with being the band to finally get me off my ass and get this label started. I received a one song demo back at Hellfest 2002 and was simply floored. We stayed in touch and eventually, arrangements were made for the release of the now legendary self-titled MCD.
From the tax-free state of NH, the group hit the ground running with their one and only tour alongside The Red Chord, Black Dahlia Murder and Premonitions of War as well as an appearance at Hellfest in 2003. Shortly after, founding member, Jonny Fay, left and the group, never able to recapture their momentum, wound up disbanding in 2004. Oddly, the group sold more CD's after their break-up than when they were still active.
Nate Johnson went on to join Premonitions of War, Burnt by the Sun, The Final Battle, Buckhunter, The Network and I'm sure some other projects I'm missing.
Jonny Fay now plays in The Red Chord and has a degree from Full Sail College in sound engineering.
Seth Coleman now rocks low-end duties for The Acacia Strain (on Prosthetic Records).
Jon Dow filled in for The Red Chord for a tour, has a solo project and found God.
