Dream Death is a Thrash metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They formed in 1985.
One of the best New Renaissance releases of the eighties, Journey Into Mystery combined doom elements with hardcore-ish vocals and speed bursts -- a style that is prevalent nowadays but rather unique for its time. The band more or less broke up in early 1989, but reformed some time later with a modified lineup, and eventually a new name: Penance. The band's three demos (two of them pre-Journey, the other recorded afterward) were compiled on one CD, released as Back From The Dead in early 2005.
