Bio

In a sea of mediocre, copy and pasted, style over substance, and obsolete music, there are very few bands not only trying to defy the convention of popular music, but intentionally re-invent it from the ground up. Bored by thecurrent state of "modern" rock, and repulsed by the lack of important discussion of current issues in the music industry, Prescription Death was created as the purposeful anti-dote to combat thoughtless, unoriginal, and aimless music, and to audibly create a new canvas for musical exploration. Taking the purest essence of punk rock and no-wave and applying it to the precise energies of programming by way of electronica and drum-n-bass, Prescription Death created their very own genre coined (5)Electro-core, far too heavy audibly and lyrically for most electronica, but too glitchyand free roaming for hardcore.

This mission was set in place by Wilhelm S. and T. Escobar Esquire circa 7/2004. Prior to this project, the two had played together for 6
years in various punk rock bands with marginal regional success, and even before were boyhood friends and elementary class mates
who dreamed of placing there own stamp on a musical legacy. "We understood that punk rock and hardcore (for us) was far too limiting
around 2001, and knew that high production value, and later programming, applied to this high energy and politically based music rock
music would not only create new and amazing sounds, but propel the evolution of new music as a whole"-Wilhelm S. "We realized
that anything was possible, and that we were no longer song-writing, but (6)sound scaping."-T.Escobar. The two bunkered into Escobar's
living quarters to create the album that they thought would be the bench mark for the electro-core sub genre. The recordings became very
tedious exercises in programming, and re-programming, then even further re-programming before the songs became finalized . "We recorded
this record about 6 times, then edited it with a fine-tooth comb, and did various lyrical re-writes to make sure the messages we are expressing
are explained to our best ability and knowledge"-Wilhelm S. After a year of recording sessions and mixing, the record that surfaced became
"The Death of Standards" {written, recorded, produced, engineered, and mixed by Prescription Death} and was independently released 8/2006 and is a viciously inventive album front to back. Never before had a record that really set out to do something so above the musical spectrum, done so, so effortlessly."We were seriously surprised listening to the play-back of the entire album for the first time, (and) we couldn't believe that we had done this in my living room"-T. Escobar. The subject matter of the album is as complex as the compositions themselves. Ranging from political and social injustices, to the war in Iraq, to the disillusion of american society, to the animal liberation movement and veganism, to capitalism, to the aids epidemic (the cure exists and is explained on this record by Dr. Dan Fernandes), to substance abuse and equal rights for every gender and sexual orientation, to name just a few of the topics.

Shows had been done prior to the release of "The Death of Standards", and by the looks of the faces in the crowd, people did not know how to
take the musical outfit."It was amazing to see the reactions we would get when we would set up and the crowd would see only two people on stage, and then we'd cue up the track and throw down harder than some of the heaviest bands of the evening". "Many didn't know how to take the juxtaposition of the styles we put together and the very serious subject matter we would discuss in our songs,and I'm sure many people thought we were kidding, or that this was some sort of joke"-Wilhelm S. "We knew we were on to something very interesting with these live shows, but also knew at the same time
that to make our sound as big as possible we would need to enlist more musicians to create an extrordinary live show"-T. EscobarAnd after the release of the album the two first enlisted long time friend and engineer Mike B. to play guitar. Prior to entering the project Mike mastered "The Death of Standards". "We knew Mike had the talent and the attitude to prevail in this project and could bring something very different to the table"-T. Escobar. "After Mike joined we did a series of shows and gained a lot of exposure and subsequently landed on the cover of BUZZ MAGAZINE (their very first magazine
interview and cover 2/2006) and we were floored by the fact that they so graciously took a chance on us"-Wilhelm S. The magazine circulates an average of 50,000 copies a month and propelled Prescription Death to another level for getting their agenda out to the masses. In that same month, the band added ex-Mind Like Water & Wet Cement Project member J. Dyer to play the bass. "We got lucky with Dyer. Life timing worked out really well to where now we have his bass playing and composition skills to
