Bass Guitar – J Bennett

In the summer of 2011, after years of performing as a quartet, it was decided that Alex Van Ness could make more of an impact onĀ audiencesĀ if he was not burdened by the weight of a bass guitar. In order to unleash the true performing power of AVN, Deadiron had to find a bass player. Enter J. Bennett. After Deadiron’s scouting department had scoured several counties in North East Ohio, they acquired Bennett who left long time band Von Isley for Deadiron. Bennett joined with Walling to make a rock solid rhythm section. Influenced by Megadeth, Pantera, Slayer, and King Diamond, and a playstyle inspired by Cliff Burton of Metallica and Steve Harris of Iron Maiden, Bennett was a natural fit in the band, and brought a vigor and precision to the low end.
