Straight from the so called "Live Music Capital of the World" Branson Missouri comes a unique blend of metallic aggression and musical technicality. In a town where has beens and never weres dominate the musical landscape, a band has formed, vowing to put metal in the limelight and show the world what a true live band is all about. This is Death May Die. This Quartet of melodic fury first got together in May of 2006. Since then they have been working hard to showcase their talent of playing true heavy metal in a sea of trends through out the Missouri/Arkansas/Kansas area. At a time where it seems most people have forgotten what true heavy metal is all about DMD has come to bring the attitude and intensity true metal heads crave.
Drummer Aaron Anderson(18)holds down the thunderous rythm behind this Mid West Metal Monster. Guitarists John Layton(17) and Austin VanDeWostine(19) unleash the metal madness with their dual guitar attack. They play off each others powerfull rythms with soaring solos, and together create amazing harmony lines. Bassist and lead vocalist Kody Schmitt(18) blasts the low end while fronting the band. He invites the crowd each night into the world of DMD, with lyrics staying true to the beliefs of the band.

Despite comming from such a musically oppressive town such as Branson, MO; DMD has managed to make name for themselves in the Branson Springfield area, regardless of their young age. Aside from being the only metal band in the competettion they won the 2007 Tri-Lakes Battle of the Bands. They were also the only band finalists in the KY3 Ozark Empire Fair talent show in which there were over 1,000 entrants. They have been featured on local radio stations Q102.1 and Z106.7. They have played many shows in Southern Missouri/North Arkansas and Eastern Kansas, including opening up for national acts Adema, and Neurosonic. They put on an electric show each night they come on stage, leaving crowds in awe regarding their high ammount of energy and stage presence. They play every show like it is their last and always promise to create a memorable evening. While they always stay true to their metal roots they appeal to a much wider audience. Local promoters often book the band with everyone from radio rock bands to death metal and hardcore bands. This has helped them gain fans of all types, thus turning many into pure metal heads. Horns shall be held high as Death May Die unleashes their Melodic Power Thrash Metal on your town.
