DREAMS IN PERIL INTRODUCE NEW LINE UP AND ENTER STUDIO
The saying is timeless ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ For Kansas City metal-core crushers DREAMS IN PERIL, this has been the underlying story of the band since their inception. But after facing an uphill battle of setbacks they are now the strongest they have ever been with the addition of two highly talented new members.
The band would like to welcome and introduce Dakota Otte as the band’s new singer and Lucas Munoz on second guitar, bringing the band up to a more fierce and devastating five piece.
State of Deceit released their debut EP ‘Retribution’ just before the world stopped with Covid. It combines their love of heavy music, the intense live scene and lyrical issues important to them e.g. mental health, political extremism and abuse. It mixes thrash, groove, metalcore and heavy metal together with a fresh sound recorded at Long Wave Studios with Romesh Dodangoda. The band have refined their craft on the road playing shows all over Wales and England.
State of Deceit was created from a desire to play heavy music, call out the bullsh*t they see around them and create some body slamming action in the pits. As Musipedia Of Metal commented ‘Although still in their infancy, Retribution is an EP of such massive stature that you could easily be forgiven for thinking that State Of Deceit were entering their second decade as a band.’
Dead Superstar is an intense melodic hard rock band founded by vocalist Terence Keith and bassist Troi Mosby (formerly of perseverance) in early 2005. Their passion to perform great music ignited the fire in them to create a powerful sound that would be heavy enough to rock the hardest head banger to the crossover masses. Dead Superstar began writing songs and rehearsing in late 2006, by 2007 they began their craft of flavourful soul rock, packed with grooves yet was heavily melodic. Their music is embedded with controversial lyrics of the human condition. The band recorded their debut album with Joey Z’s (life of agony) studio, Method of Groove, entitled “Tribulations”. The album is packed with 11 pounding anthems, powerful vocals, blistering guitars, thundering bass and grooving beats.
