Evildead was an American thrash metal band formed in Los Angeles in 1987. The band was originally composed of members of two former bands, Agent Steel and Abattoir, including guitarist Juan Garcia, who is their only permanent member member. During their initial eight-year run, Evildead made two studio albums (Annihilation of Civilization and The Underworld), a live recording and an EP. Although their commercial success was limited, their music is still highly regarded amongst metal fans. Evildead had been plagued by extended inactivity due to lineup changes and problems with making a follow-up to The Underworld. This resulted in their official breakup in 1995. They reunited in 2008, but eventually broke up four years later.
