Dr. Shrinker is a death metal band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin that formed in October 1987. Being obscure, the band only came to wider attention with the release of a posthumous split EP with Nunslaughter and a discography CD, released in 2004 by Necroharmonic Productions.[2] Three of the group's members (Tony Brandt, Scott McKillop, Matt Grassberger) would also play in Phantasm, a group in some ways similar to Dr. Shrinker, and released their debut album "The Abominable". The band broke up by January 1991, only lasting 4 years. The band has reformed in January 2013.[3]

The Eponym was produced by Eric Greif.[4]
