The nights have grown long along the rust belt shore and the winds of winter raise in anticipation as Deadiron now announces the debut of their newest member. Though saddened at the departure of Sunny Kolattukudy, today, the fire of passion grows bright again. After a exhaustive search, the band lay their sights on a guitarist of great prowess and renown. From the recently disbanded Shades of Rage, the new rhythmic back bone of the Deadiron quintet is Kenny Streza.
Streza brings a thunder and precision to his instrument reminiscent of metal’s founding heroes. He debuts as Deadiron’s rhythm guitarist, live in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, in celebration of the upcoming new year. It is with high hopes that the secret of steel will ignite the flames of creation as Deadiron sets their goals towards US touring in 2013 as well as returning to the studio to record the follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album “Out of the Rust and Ruin.” The aforementioned album is now streaming and downloadable at Deadiron.com.
This year, the chalice of rock will flow and we will all drink deep.
DEADIRON turns the page to a new chapter in their story. With the exit of founding member, Sunny Kolattukudy, a void has been left in the Deadiron outfit. Extensive auditions have been tumultuous as the band races to find a proper replacement with the right amount of gumption, gusto, and of course, the silkiest of locks. As the prospects narrow, the question becomes…who will become the rhythm guitarist and newest member of DEADIRON?
The Grand Unveiling will occur on December 8th at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, OH. Help usher in a new era for DEADIRON on December 8th.
