Gigadead is a classically-based Speed Metal or Death Metal band from Minnesota, USA. They formed around the year 1990. The main writer is associated with a Kublai Khan member (they had an ex Megadeth guitarist). These same musicians (Idso, River and Pelton) also have ties with the main writer from Kronk and Realm (Milwaukee, Wis). Unlike Bay Area California bands though, Gigadead's style has always seemed more closely related to Scandinavian Death Metal or Germanic Speed Metal.
