The Death Metal Heretics was founded in 2009 in the small town of Verne (near Paderborn, Germany). Shortly thereafter, the first line-up was including Florian Deppe (Vocals), Andre ‘SportY’ Ignee (Bass Guitars), Thomas Langehenke (Drums), Tim Lobner (Lead Guitars) and Dennis Schnitzmeier (Rhythm Guitars) with which the first concert was played on 31st of October 2010 in Verne in front of roughly 300 people. SportY left the band in 2012 and after releasing the first song in 2012 Sebastian Deppe replaced him.
After several more shows in the area of Paderborn, the recordings for the very first demo CD “Free ‘till Death” started. The CD was released on 24th of October 2015. Another line-up change came with Florian leaving the band in 2014; Fabian Marx joined the band as the new vocalist. He also rerecorded the vocals for the demo CD.
One of the highlights during this time was the show in Wuppertal as a support act for Swedish band Chugger on their Spreading The Disease Tour 2015. Melanie ‘Mello’ Pelz replaced Sebastian Deppe at this concert for the first time and joined the band after Sebastian’s departure shortly after he finished recording.
In May 2016 the first gig in a foreign country followed in Prague, alongside the Brazilian band Lacerated and Carbonized and the Czech band Ars Triplex. Later that year Mello left the band . After having helped out on occasion, Santiago 'Santi' Sánchez joined the Band as the new bassist in 2017.
The recordings for the EP “Talent For Violence” are done already. It was released on all channels on May 4th, 2018, and made available as a free download, rather than selling it as a CD. The three songs of the EP were mixed and mastered by J.D. Turner.
