Dead Reckoning™ is an unstoppable metal band from Fort Benning GA. We have created much of our own sound by taking bits and pieces of every genre we love and smashed it together to make what is our sound today! We have been told we sound like a mash up of Lamb of God meets Slayer meets Black Label Society. Taking the heavier edge, we love and bringing back the mind numbing solos from the past. Nothing beats thunderous drums, heavy vocals, killer bass riffs and a screaming lead guitar!!! Time to get rid of the cookie cutter bands and music and get back to our roots kicking ass! We pride ourselves in being able to please every fan no matter what genre you are into we have something for you!!! So sit back relax and prepare for you mind to be melted!
Dead Reckoning™ was formed by Mike K-OS Spriggs at the time an active duty soldier stationed at Fort Benning GA in the spring of 2012 with the goal to mix old and new metal elements to create something powerful, lasting and unique. He began to build a foundation from bands like Slayer, Lamb Of God, Children of Bodom, BLS, Pantera and many others to create what has become the Dead Reckoning™ Sound. Ryan Lake has taken over on Drums to bring true clarity and power to the rhythm section with fast pummeling rolls and dynamic foot work. Our newest addition, Brian Silverstein is now holding down the low end with a bass finger style reminiscent of Iron Maiden and early Metallica with his killer sound. New vocalist Curt Esparza was once the bassist for us and found himself down a different path but once he heard we were looking for a new singer he quickly made his way back. Within days of tryouts he was signed to the band with a very unique sound ranging screams, growls and even cleans bringing us to a new level for upcoming albums. Dead Reckoning™ now stands ready to make their charge down the path of world domination, now as a national touring band looking to reset the world's mind on metal and get back to our ass kicking roots. No more cookie cutter b.s. straight metal
