The second album is certainly their best!!! I don't know why they quite.
From: Lee Davis   (IP unknown) Date: December 11, 2001 at 21:09
I also wonder why they quit? I certainly would have bought their next cd.
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: December 22, 2001 at 12:27
I miss these guys as well! Anybody heard their live in the studio EP (1993)? The "unplugged" version of "Temple Of Soul" is perhaps their finest moment ever recorded. It's better than the original album version!

I just thought this was funny: a while ago I was wondering if anyone had devoted a website to Die Happy, so I put their name in a search engine and came up with "". I was psyched until I went to it and found out that it was a site dedicated to a German Pop band who have the same name. It was all in German too, so I couldn't even read it. Now I've tried it again and it seems to be some sort of strange suicidal web site. Tell Doug Thieme and Larry Farkas to call their lawyers...

Die Happy was a cool band. I liked their second album better than there first. They're they only Christian band that I know that sounded similar to Led Zepplin.
From: kevensyle   (IP unknown) Date: April 9, 2002 at 18:41
The lead singer (Robin Kyle) who has an amazing voice went on to sing for Red Sea, but I don't see them on this site.
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: April 9, 2002 at 19:10
Scroll down a little bit, Kevensyle, they're in here, but there's still some confusion as to whether they were called "Red Sea" or "Blood" I still say the name of the band was Red Sea!
From: Tom   (IP unknown) Date: April 18, 2002 at 1:30
I liked their first record a lot better. Their second record was a lot more blues and really short on metal. The first record was some great heavy metal! The chugga-chugga of Perpetual Motion, the blistering pace of Cage, the beauty of Celebration, the hard truth of Painted Truth. That first record was just terrific.
From: UofW_FAN   (IP unknown) Date: August 30, 2002 at 23:44
Die Happy's bass player Digreg Chaisson (Die Happy II) also played for Red Sea and I have the cd blood and at the bottom it says Red Sea would like to Thank: and them has a list of names
From: UofW_FAN   (IP unknown) Date: August 30, 2002 at 23:46
that would be Greg Chaisson (Die Hppy)
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: September 10, 2002 at 13:46
Greg Chaisson also played with Badlands, who aren't a Christian band, but if you like blues-based hard rock similar to Die Happy, they were a great band. I just found a copy of their second album "Voodoo Highway" and it sounds like Badlands and Die Happy should've toured together!
From: Buster   (IP unknown) Date: July 15, 2003 at 0:48
I really dont like Die happy at all well maybe one song. But I cant listen to it cuz there sell outs in my opinion to rogger martinez of Vengeance Rising.
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: July 26, 2003 at 10:59
Die Happy were WAAAAAY more talented than Vengeance Rising! I think the band members made the right choice when they jumped off of Roger's ship and formed D.H.!
From: Tool   (IP unknown) Date: August 29, 2003 at 12:33
I agree that Die Happy is far better than Vengeance! I bought the D.H. cd when it first came out a long time ago and they I was really impressed. I lost all my cds and am trying to find D.H. on Kazaa and can't. This makes me sad!
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: August 29, 2003 at 13:32
Hey Tool: Don't feel bad, I still can't find this one on CD either... still making do with my old cassette copy.
From: donny   (IP unknown) Date: October 29, 2003 at 13:49
hey tool and metalgeek, list you e-mails and you just might get an early christmas present. Can't help you with kazaa, but I can do better....
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: October 29, 2003 at 16:18
Hey Donny: Appreciate the offer but I just found the first D.H. album on CD via, I'm just waiting for it to come in the mail! Thanks anyway!
From: Bob   (IP unknown) Date: November 29, 2003 at 19:09
I like both albums, though I have to say that the second is better as far as it being more melodic than the first. The first ablum offers great songs like "Bone Doctor" which is a faster tune, remnant of what used to be their music from when they were with Vengeance. Robin Basurri (singer) went on to do a band called "Red Sea", which is worth checking out if you like Die Happy.
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: December 1, 2003 at 16:05
If you like the heavier, more thrashing side of metal you'll like the first DH album better, but if you are more into the hard rocking/blues metal sound then you'll like "Volume II" better. I personally like the debut better but they both still rock.
From: NelgMan   (IP unknown) Date: February 24, 2004 at 5:22
Wow!! thanks you guys,maybe we should put the band back together for another CD ehh? Glen Mancaruso
From: Donny   (IP unknown) Date: February 25, 2004 at 1:32
Hey Glen... If you can get Robyn Basuri back on all means..get back together !!!! There is not enough of the old school rockers left..but there still is a bunch of us fans !! It goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on!!!!!!!
From: nelgman   (IP unknown) Date: February 27, 2004 at 1:46
Well it would have to be Robyn by all means, Larry Farkas is up to it, I think Greg will do it, Doug dosen't play anymore, so we gota ask Robyn,let's see what happens,Glen
From: Silver Fang   (IP unknown) Date: March 9, 2004 at 10:58
I remember hearing that the band split due to some personal conflicts between the members, but that aside I have Volume 2 and it rocks. I've been trying for years to locate the first sign of it anywhere.
From: Glen Mancaruso   (IP unknown) Date: March 13, 2004 at 0:08
Silver Fang, na! that's not true, we just had a problem with the recored Co.were all still friends.
From: David   (IP unknown) Date: April 7, 2004 at 16:54
It's about time a great christian band comes up with a great record deal and gives the world something to listen to. Hey glen, if it is you, try to get in touck with Ty Tabor of KING'S X and see if he can do anything. Tabor has great contact in the music world maybe he can pull off something....You'll never know or we'll never know. PRAY
From: Glen M.   (IP unknown) Date: April 14, 2004 at 2:01
David, right now me Larry, Doug & Roger martin are going to be doing A Vengeance Reuion in Aug,and ya it's me Glen from D.H.& V.R.
From: Keith   (IP unknown) Date: September 10, 2004 at 2:10
Vol II is one of my favorite Christian hard rock albums of all time, not dissimilar to what Badlands were doing around the same time. Excellent bluesy hard rock with a retro '70's vibe. It's a shame that this band was mainly relegated to the "Christian ghetto"so to speak, as they could've been(and should've been) alot bigger in the secular market, as the musicianship and the songs are all first rate, and would appeal to fans of this style Christian or not.
From: jim mehl   ( Date: March 22, 2005 at 22:46
the best band of all ever in this genre,only lacking roger what great loss of a great singer and front man i only hope and pray the rest of the guys are doing well
