Monoxide - Piermony, N.Y. (1988-1991)
I would describe Monoxide as a Death/Thrash band. Again, I remember seeing them live back in the day, but the only thing I remember about the band is that Tito Puente Jr. (Decomposed) was their drummer at some point.
I know from the bands bio and my own terrible memory that Monoxide were originally called Dregs of Society, and I believe Tito played drums in Monoxide prior to playing with Decomposed. Anyway, the music is solid, well recorded and well performed, and definitely worthy of a listen if you are a fan of obscure 80's- 90's metal.
Unfortunately, I do not have either of the bands demo tapes...demo #1 from 1988 or Live To DAT from 1991, however you can stream the bands music on their Myspace page...so do it!
