Dead Men Walking
SERPENTEENS were formed in late 1995 by Gee Grant and Mark Zap (known as "Fang Alphamayle" and "Bub Romero" when in character) as a side project to explore new musical and conceptual ideas not present within the context of their current bands at the time. Combining a passion for Horror and Zombie movies, with the love of theatrical bands (KISS, Misfits, Alice Cooper etc.), they began to lay the foundation for a concept. The look of the classic film 'zombie' combined with a catchy 'monsterpop' sound was to become a signature trademark. The project recorded a 4 song demo titled 'Dead Men Walking', with Gee providing vocals, playing drums and guitars. Mark's considerable talents were put to use for bass guitar duties and backing vocals. This rare demo became a favorite of underground tape traders worldwide. In 1997 (with the disintegration of both of the duos main musical projects) the two decided to revitalize the Dead Men Walking project and breathe into it new life - as a priority. A new name was chosen and the two recorded a follow-up 8 song demo titled 'VoodooZombieSexDolls'. These early demos were later released as a CD collection through MP3.com and sold almost 1,000 copies, as well as being distributed freely on the internet. Combining an infinite number of musical and theatrical influences the band has also created an unbelievably repertoire of well-crafted songs. In 2005 the band's new lineup was rounded out by seasoned recording/touring veterans Frank Morin (Frank N. Stein) and Glenn Sorino (The Creature). In 2006 SERPENTEENS are back with new releases, songs and professional re-recordings of now-classic "monsterpop" material.
