The only thing known about this band is that they produced a practice demo tape that is distinctly different in sound from the other Dead to Sin from Canada. Several people from Southern California mentioned a band in the 1980s led by Richard Carlstedt of C.R.O.S.S. and The Israelites (the interview section of the T.W.D.N.R.T.P.A.C.T.R.I. tape by Crazed Bunnyz has Marc Plainguet and Mike Futch mentioning this band). The assumption is that there are two bands called “Dead to Sin,” and that this version is from California in the 1980s - until someone can say otherwise.
