Embalmed started as a Buffalo, New York garage band in late 1986. By 1988 Embalmed had formed into the current lineup and started to use the band name, Embalmed started to gain local notoriety for several light hearted metal songs like Spider Goulash Mosh, Juan Valdez and Dead Girls (Don't Say No). Eventually the band evolved writing serious local favorites such as Shortcut to Death, Bury the Cross and Beginning of the End / Vigilante. The band was also known for the pit moving Imperial Death Mosh. Embalmed was evolving and writing new, more mature material, such as the never before heard song Prisoner of Silence when they started to change members and eventually disband by 1990. In 2010 the band got back together to re-record the above mentioned songs and write many new songs for a CD titled Rebirth. The new songs were written in the style of the original Embalmed Sound as it was in 1990. The new songs include the Title track instrumental intro Rebirth, the dark and disturbing Mourning, the powerful and epic song The Dark Season and the sorrowful outro instrumental Ruination just to name a few. The band also has teamed up with a couple of powerhouse guest vocalists for the songs Dumb Love Limp with Jim Osieja of Jester Heights and Amnesty Box fame, Buffalo Bill Angst of War Prayer and R.U.L.E. fame for the track Pray for the Dead and Dennis Glinski of Grave Descent, Mayhemesis and Tirant Sin fame for the track Beginning of the End / Vigilante.
