DAMIEN DEADSON: Brain-Child of Ex-Demon Hunter Guitarist Ryan Helm

DAMIEN DEADSON has enough energy to power a small fleet of Panzer tanks. It’s a fuel that burns full-throttle, ignited by the heat of their lyrics and the power and passion of their music and performance. Hailing from Winston-Salem, NC, DAMIEN DEADSON fuses progressive metal with powerful groove oriented riffs. These songs are dark, rich, and hauntingly honest. Along with a virtuosic blend of crushing guitars, syncopated drums and raw emotional vocal honesty, DAMIEN DEADSON has a firm grasp on the power in mood setting in his playing and the honesty in his vocals.

“face-meltingly awesome”  – Decibel Magazine

“Ugly, intense, and dated in that perfect way, the riffs are ferocious and widdly, and the singing is growly. Brings to mind old Exodus and death metal bands like Morbid Angel. Magnificent”  – Detroit’s Metro Times
