"Before there was punk there was DEATH. Formed in 1971 by three African-American brothers in Detroit, Michigan, Death is now widely acknowledged as being one of the first punk bands. After years of silence, Death’s moment finally arrived following unexpected demand from rabid internet fans and record collectors which ushered renowned appreciation and a swarm of national media attention that has now secured their place in the annals of rock history. Death was featured in a 2012 American documentary film, A Band Called Death, directed by Mark Christopher Covino and Jeff Howlett. The film was a hit at film festivals around the world and is currently in the top 20 list of documentaries downloaded via Netflix."
