Applauded by GunShyAssassin.com’s Chris Harris for “doing death metal right…the way it’s meant to be played, with extreme heart, extreme groove, and extreme prowess,” DEROGATORY has delivered one relentless and impressive debut in Above All Else.
Check out Above All Else, along with an interview with guitarist/vocalist Christian Ordonez at this location.

“…an enjoyable romp back through the early ’90s death metal scene.” – DeadRhetoric.com
DEROGATORY was formed in late 2010. Founding guitarists Christian Ordonez and Joe Viwatkurkul wrote all the early material with Chris later taking the position of changing the music style and riff writing even further with later material. Derogatory has seen three drummers come and go before current skin-basher Coyoton stepped in. Bassist Daniel Alonzo rounds out the lineup. In 2011, the band recorded a demo, which spread like wildfire around their native Los Angeles. Derogatory specialized in heavy music played with fury, speed and technicality.
