Epidemic Bio

Epidemic was an American thrash metal band of late 1980s and early 1990s, part of the Bay Area thrash scene.

Epidemic was formed in early 1987 in Palo Alto by bassist Mark Bodine, guitarist Guy Higbey, guitarist Erik Moggridge, and their friend Ted Kamp on drums to play the senior night talent show at their high school. After playing a set of two songs (a cover of Metallica's Creeping Death and an original song penned by Moggridge called "No Man's Land") and enjoying the experience, the guys decided to continue and pursue the band full time taking the Epidemic name from the Slayer song.

After recruiting drummer Geoff Bruce and vocalist Carl Fulli to complete the lineup, the band entered a Battle of the Bands contest held at the Mountain View Theater in September 1987. Having only recruited Fulli a couple of weeks prior, and having no previous experience, the band had no real expectations of winning the contest. After the first night of competition the band had reached the finals and subsequently won the competition the next night. They won an opening slot for Death Angel the following month.
