D.R.I. @ Holy Diver
D.R.I. , Bypassing Oblivion & Unprovoked
Originally formed in 1990 and from the small town of Auburn, California just east of Sacramento. Unprovoked became a driving force in what was a raging Thrash Metal scene at that time. After releasing their first and only demo 'Population Zero' in 1992, they quickly gained recognition playing shows throughout The Sacramento and Bay Area of California opening for big acts such as Vio-lence, Machinehead, and Bonded by Blood featuring Tom Hunting and Paul Ballof. Unfortunately after a 5 year reign and an evolving music scene they decided to disband in 1995, not to return until 2015.
Present Day - After a long 20 year break the band decided to reunite and perform at the 2015 California Music & Tattoo Festival supporting Thrash Metal legends Death Angel, and Flotsam & Jetsam which sparked new life and energy back into the band. Unprovoked have now returned as an even more stable, established, and well-known entity in the Northern California Metal scene. After re recording most of their original songs and releasing their debut album 'Out Of The Ashes' in 2019, they are showing no signs of slowing down.

Welcome to Death in the Dunes! We have some brutal bands already booked for next year! Since this is year 3 and last year was such a huge success we added another day! We will kick off the festival Friday night at 7pm on our indoor stage. So come early to set up your camping spot before the show. There will be free camping again this year for everyone! Saturday the show will start outside at 12 pm and go all day long. At dark we will move on to the inside stage and play until midnight, or maybe later. This is an all ages event and kids 12 and under are free. Also there is a brand new playground for the kids! Dogs are welcome just please clean up after them. We will have alcohol this year and already have a bartender for Sat! There will be a couple different food trucks, and lots of vendors selling all kinds of cool stuff. Bring warm clothes it gets chilly here at night. July weather for Humboldt is about 70 tops during the day and we are on the beach. We are also doing a few new things this year! So stay tuned for details!
Northern Nevada's Devastation in the Desert is an annual event that will bring bands together from all over the West Coast. 2019 is the debut for this "Metal Festival".
Spring Meltdown has returned to Whiskey Dick's Saloon for the first time since 2012. We are highly excited to be rocking there once again and bringing the heavy music back to the spot were it all began for Born Dead Productions.
