Formed as early as 1987, these thrashers released the Beer-can demo in 1989 and a demo called Dying Phase independently in 1991 before their debut appeared three years later. The What Do You Expect For $200 Demo of 1993 was never released. The group managed to grab a support slot for Motörhead in 1991. The group opened for Sepultura in 1992. The band later on ended up playing the foyer of a concert hall at a Metallica show! Jason joined on drums in 1995. An EP called Beautiful Day also appeared in 1995 on Oracle Records. The band could also be heard on Warhead Volume 1 compilation album.
In 2010 Frozen Doberman announced it would play its first show with the original line-up after fifteen years of inactivity at the Monster Session 2 benefit show for the MS foundation at Manning Bar Sydney University, Australia on March 13, 2010. The original Frozen Doberman line-up of Adam Marsh, Peter ‘Red’ Fortune, Tim West and Shaun Barry was to hit the stage for the benefit alongside some of Sydney’s ‘90’s’ bands including Hellmenn, Nunbait, The Hard-Ons, Daredevil, Tweezer and The Celibate Rifles.
The band issued a 17-track compilation in 2009 that included tracks from early demos and EPs. It could be purchased by contacting the band through email@example.com. Australia’s Frozen Doberman returned for one more show in Sydney at The Annandale Hotel on Saturday June 5th of 2010.
The band had a sound similar to late ‘80s Metallica. Tim West ended up managing Sleep Parade.
