Along with Delta 9, another of the American techno signees to the British grindcore label Earache, Disciples of Annihilation (D.O.A.) formed in New York City in 1993 around Sal Mineo, Nick Marchetti and Carl Carinci.
One year later the trio began releasing material on Industrial Strength, including the "Industrial Power 9D4" single. After playing several shows in hardcore techno's home-base of Scotland, D.O.A. appeared on the Industrial Fucking Strength compilation and signed to Earache. The group's debut album, New York City Speedcore, appeared in early 1997. ~ John Bush, Rovi
