First Showing

Posted on February 12, 2008

Sometime in early February – and early February is less than a week away – Dez Fafara’s new band Deathride will be hitting the studio to record their debut…and then off to the road it will be… During a phone conversation with Dez last night, you could hear “House Of The Rising Sun” by the Animals cranking through the other line. “Two times per day, six days a week,” Dez tells of Deathride’s practice schedule. “Gettin’ ready to start the album in a week.” Speaking of practicing and hitting the road, Deathride played their first show ever this past weekend…well, not your typical show per say, as the show was played at the band’s rehearsal spot for two people – those two people being nerds (and we mean that in the nicest possible way) from Roadrunner A&R. “I say it was a show because it was a show of force. When we were finished playing, all Monte (Roadrunner) said was ‘Metal is back, This band is heavy, heavy metal,'” explains Dez. He goes on adding, “then Kevin (Roadrunner) said ‘This is the best thing I could have done for myself today, to come see Deathride.’ It was pure energy in the room…” And surely this energy will carry over to the studio, and then to the road. When speaking with Dez on this project, you get a feeling of excitement and energy within the band that you rarely ever come across. “Nothing stops for this band, we are on our way back to rehearsal now.” Godspeed, gentlemen. more to come…
