Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
We are Day of Execution - a death metal band hailing from the city of Varna, Bulgaria. In the beginning the band was initially called REICHSRADIO and was formed in 2005 as a brutal death/grind project . The style and the conception have altered much since then, mostly due to lineup changes. We also changed the style of the band and now we play old-school death metal.During the years of development we decided to change the name of the band to DAY OF EXECUTION (inspired by Steven King’s novel "The Green Mile”).
