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.

TWR Radio Favorites AVATAR Release New Song, Tour Dates

(NEW YORK, NY) – Swedish visual masterminds AVATAR unveiled their latest video for Smells Like A Freakshow today. Click HERE or the image above to watch.

Frontman Johannes Eckerström adds his own words about the new video:

“The video illustrates inner conflict in an explicit manner, using abuse of unjust power in different contexts. The lyrical themes of downfall, embracing of decadence and failed attempts to escape are pointed out by the fact that ultimately the bad guys win.”

The band kicks off their very first U.S. tour supporting LACUNA COIL and SEVENDUST with an intimate performance at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on Wednesday, January 30.

AVATAR To Support SEVENDUST & LACUNA COIL


AVATAR holds their place as one of  top requested artists of 2012 on The Welding Room.

The smash hit single, Ready For The Ride, powered itself into the top played songs on program. So it comes as no surprise that The Welding Room alliance is very familiar with AVATAR.

If you’re not – familiar with the band or song, we apologize for your ignorance. It’s never too late!

However, for TWR Alliance loyalists, AVATAR playing in the States is a welcome surprise.

 

(NEW YORK, NY) – AVATAR, the band that brought you the gut wrenching side show video for Black Waltz and the visually dazzling video for Torn Apart will support SEVENDUST and LACUNA COIL this winter. This is the very first time the band will play the US, dates will stretch up and down the east coast.

 

Drummer John Alfredsson adds his own words:

“It feels truly amazing to get the opportunity to make our first strike in the US with Sevendust and Lacuna Coil. 2013 will be the year of Avatar in the states and we are excited to bring the madness to you!”

The band released their newest record, Black Waltz earlier this year to much critical acclaim
