Vocals – Alex Van Ness

DEADIRON has been fresh on the scene but years in the making, fronted by co-founding member Alex Van Ness. “I’ve been in a lot of local bands, but I’ve never been so proud to be a part of something in my life as this band,” says Van Ness. No stranger to the stage, Van Ness is known for his involvement in Cleveland death metal act Neonatal Death and Oi! punk forerunners, The Brazen Rogues. In spite of such involvements, few of these projects granted Alex the chance to fully portray the feel of his adored city, Cleveland. “I love this city,” he says, “I’m still an old-school Coventry kid at heart and I’ve always dreamed of the music scene bringing people together to do the right thing and have a lot of fun doing it! And now it’s time.”
