CIANIDE (USA/IL)


Formed in 1988 by Scott Carroll(Guitars), Mike Perun(Bass), and Bill Thurman(Vocals). With the departure of Bill Thurman before the release of their first demo in 1990, CIANIDE aquired Calos Mendoza for drum duties and Mike Perun would take over vocals. After the release of their first demo in 1990, CIANIDE acquired the help of long time friend Jeff Kabella for drum duties on this demo. This demo would land them a record deal with the Illinois label Grindcore International. This trio would go on to record the first two studio albums in the band's illustrious career.
