Disciples of Annihilation (D.O.A.) was the first authentic speedcore artist or ensemble, which was formed in New York City, USA in 1993 by Sal Mineo, Nick Marchetti and Carl Carinci. One year later, the trio began releasing material on Industrial Strength Records, including the "Industrial Power 9D4" single.
