The Red Death are a death metal band from Bath, New York. Formed in 2002 after the demise of Another Day Forgotten by singer Paul Hamblin, guitarist Josh Williammee, and drummer Graham Mitchell, the original lineup was rounded out by guitarist Brian Van Gelder and bassist Karl Janovec. In 2003 Bryan left the band and was replaced by Nate Golia, a guitarist from nearby Rochester, NY, formerly of another metal band, Warblade (band) . That summer they embarked on their first short tour with Virginia screamo band Shadows and the Silence. Shadows and the Silence's bass player was a Bath native, Dominic Mastronunzio, and he would replace Karl the following summer. While on a three-week tour with New Jersey's With Resistance, the band began speaking with Metal Blade Records and would sign with them the following fall; however, Nate would leave the band to concentrate on school and be replaced by Auburn, NY's Aaron Conti, formerly of If Hope Dies. After signing to Metal Blade, the band embarked on several extended, full-U.S. tours with bands such as From a Second Story Window, The Acacia Strain, Undying, Through the Eyes of the Dead, and Accursed Dawn, in 2006 they were dropped. With new bassist Jordan Rathbun, the band has recorded a new demo for prospective labels. Paul Hamblin has also recently caught the "acting bug" and is jetsetting to Hollywood bi-weekly to star in some low budget and blockbuster releases, like Mr. Goat and Put it All In. Graham Mitchell is now head of a mine expansion project southeast of Erie, PA, and spends most of his free time there designing complicated mining equipment and safety harnesses. Aaron Conti has founded a record label by the name of "Roadside Records" and is looking for new talent everyday. New Guitarist Mark Kelley has recently been seen somewhere near Ft. Lauderdale but sources say he always makes it to weekly rehearsals on time and spry. Jordan is looking to plant his roots and is engaged to be married next year on April 20th, friends of Rathbun indicate that his fiancee is pregnant with their first child and that the location of the wedding is due to be on the tip-top of the television antenna on the Eiffel Tower (Paris, France). Former guitar player Joshua "Dino-Puncher" Williammee is in development with a burl selling pyramid scheme and is reportedly doing awful. Former long-time bassist Jackson Portwood has been seen in the Phoenix area spray painting large murals for corporate art-in-advertising projects and is yet to shower. Matt Faulisi. The band decided to call it a day in September 2008. The split will happen after the completion of their last few shows.
