[Press Release] Deadline release debut album ‘Black Wolf City’

Formed in August of 2014 and having recently won the “best new comer” at the South African Metal Music Awards, Deadline are taking the South African metal scene by storm. Consisting of Jessy Switchblade on vocals, Dizzy Styxx on drums and backing vocals, Baz Steel on bass and backing vocals, The Skullprit on guitars and backing vocals and last but not least as 80% of the tunes are his handy work Raven Chaos on guitars and backing vocals.

The band have just released their début album BLACK WOLF CITY

What started as a fun side hobby, with time has become something bigger than they could have ever expected. The band have been tearing up stages for the last couple of years with South African heavy weights like The Black Cat Bones, Zombies Ate My Girlfriend, Deity’s Muse and The Slashdogs. They recently made their big stage début when they played this year’s Krank’d Up Festival, proving that as a live band they are a true force to be reckoned with.

Artwolf Media had this to say about the band after Krank’d Up “Their performance was exhilarating; vocalist Jessy Switchblade and the rest of the band members were all over the stage and their crazy energy ignited the crowd. It’s easy to see why Deadline won the SAMMA 2017 Best Metal Newcomer award. Their music could be compared to that of Megadeth and Anthrax. Switchblade’s voice is characteristic of Bruce Dickinson’s (Iron Maiden). The band’s performance, stage presence and on-stage personas completely set them apart.”

Why-Ed “ These guys are such a treat to watch and I have absolutely no idea why they are not the next big thing. They have as much energy on stage as Bruce Dickinson and that is no joke.”

Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
