Rigor Mortis Bio:

RIGOR MORTIS formed in 1983 in Arlington, Texas and immediately became a driving force in the original wave of North Texas Metal. With the emphasis on speed and the subject matter steeped in horror and gore, RIGOR stood out as extreme intimidators, on and off stage. Starting out as a 3 piece composed of Mike Scaccia on guitar, Harden Harrison on drums, and Casey Orr on bass, the band added vocalist Bruce Corbitt in '86 and quickly signed to Capitol Records, releasing their classic self titled debut record in '87. Two years later, Corbitt left the band and Doyle Bright came in on vocals. RIGOR went on to release two more records; "Freaks", on Metal Blade Records and "RIGOR MORTIS Vs. The Earth", on Triple X.

In 1991 Mike accepted an offer to join Ministry as well as Revolting Cocks, and Lard. And Rigor Mortis was no more, but the four members remained close friends and supported each others' endeavors.

Casey Orr joined shock rockers, GWAR, where he's remained off and on since '94, and has performed or recorded with a list of other bands including Blohole (with Scaccia), The Hellions, The Burden Brothers, and XCOPS.

Harden Harrison went on to play drums with Pervis, Speedealer, and Mitra.

Bruce has been enjoying recent success with his Thrash outfit, Warbeast, who released their debut record on Phil Anselmo's Housecore Records in late 2010.
