Jesters Of Destiny  


Jesters Of Destiny were a quirky, offbeat, psychedelic-tinged band, borne at a time where there really wasn't a defined audience for such non-mainstream material. Though some of their songs were too poppy/upbeat to be considered metal, Fun At The Funeral does contain some real gems, including "End Of Time" (also found on a Metal Massacre compilation), "God Told Me To", and especially "Diggin' That Grave". With lineup changes seemingly an everyday occurence, the band eventually produce the covers EP In A Nostalgic Mood (this also before covers and tributes were the rage as they are now), and apparently a third release was recorded in some capacity but never released. When signed to the Dimension label (a subdivision of Metal Blade), they were referred to as "alternative metal" -- an apt description back then, again long before it became a more common term. released. Fun At The Funeral has recently been re-released in Europe by Ektro Records, containing additional unreleased tracks.
