Life and career


Browning started to play drums at 13 years old. His main influences are Black Sabbath, Slayer, Angel Witch, Mercyful Fate and Celtic Frost.

Browning was the former drummer/vocalist for death metal pioneers Morbid Angel. He played in the band from 1984 to 1986 and made one official recording with them, the Abominations of Desolation album, which was not actually released until 1991, years after Browning left the band. Browning had a very turbulent relationship with Morbid Angel guitarist Trey Azagthoth and Browning's exit from the band was apparently triggered by Azagthoth being involved in an affair with Browning's then girlfriend, which led to an altercation between the two.

Following his departure from Morbid Angel, Browning remained active as the drummer/vocalist (a rare combination in rock music in general, much less metal) for a few bands in the Florida death metal scene, including Nocturnus, a technical/progressive-oriented death metal band that made a name for themselves by featuring a keyboard player and with science fiction-themed lyrics. Browning was the drummer and vocalist for the band on their classic album The Key (1990) and solely played drums on Thresholds before being fired from the band in 1993. The band has now revived under the name "Nocturnus AD". Other projects in the 1980s and 1990s included Florida death metal band Incubus and Acheron.

Browning's current band is called After Death, sounding much like Nocturnus with somewhat simpler song structures, and lyrically concerned with the occult and black magic. He is also involved in Devine Essence and Wolf And Hawk with female metal singer Lisa Lombardo. He is currently residing in Tampa, Florida and has a large collection of medieval weapons and Ancient Egyptian artifacts in his home. He also has a huge interest in old muscle cars.

In 2008, he released a solo album called "Mike Brownings Inner Workings – Trancemissions" at Pharmafabrik Recordings.
