“I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead Infused with intense emotion and no-holds-barred attitude DeadSleep is no dream. — Standing apart from the rest DeadSleep combines a twist of old and new school Heavy Metal Rock–
New York , NY, April 16, 2012 – Heavily equipped with a cutting edge sound, up and coming Heavy Metal / Thrash Band DeadSleep packs a punch with his debut CD. Signed to Washington DC based Label Potomac Records, singer /song writer Desi Pena has written and produced a full length recording entitled “Falling to Pieces due to be released 04/24/2012
No stranger to the music world Desi brings 20+ years’ experience to the table. This completely self-taught musician came out the gate guns blazing. Originally from New York, Desi was one of the original founders of the Long
Island-based band, ELEMENT. The group performed together for seven years. Taking the knowledge he had acquired he decided to start on a new project hence DeadSleep was born. Busting through the metal mold this album demonstrates his potential not only vocally but as a producer / engineer. His combination of catchy and melodic lines mixed with clean chugging guitar, gut wrenching screams and hard hitting speed beats leaves you white knuckled and can only be described as a heart attack from beginning to end. If there is one aspect of the album that stands out it is his remarkable level of pure and superior guitar skills displayed on tracks such as “The Chant, “Someday, and “I.D.K.
Being a fan of so many different bands throughout the years ranging from rock to death metal Deadsleep has incorporated all of that into this album. When asked, lead singer Desi Pena states his personal influences are the likes of Marty Friedman, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde and John Petrucci some of the best guitar players the world has to offer. You can certainly hear the metal roots in his music, however I think this album stands outside of the typical metal genre.
DeadSleep has spent the last few months working diligently with Kirk Chaney – (Kirkland Studios) Digital
Mastering/Engineer /Potomac Records to master each song to perfection on the “Falling to Pieces album. Both Desi Pena and Kirk Chaney will be making their first television guest appearance on the Front Row Show later this month to discuss the album, signing to Potomac Records and the release date. Desi is scheduled to start his U.S & Canadian tour this year, bringing together a slew of extremely talented musicians.
DeadSleep’s reputation earned him air time on 50+ internet Radio stations, numerous Indie reviews, feature spots, artist of the month, along with major record label attention (Potomac) and 10k+ followers on twitter and rising. Desi’s drive and desire for the dream is relentless.
The Entire DeadSleep Album available soon for releases on 100+ digital media outlets in 230+ countries. ITunes,
