Deadweight / Press

“There's a new southern bluesy classic riffing band in town and they go by the name of Dead Weight, and their music is anything but. Big guitars with sizzling lead riffs, big blues-based chugging, and vocals soulful enough to raise this unit above the pack. "Cosmic Lunch" is everything you'd hope for from a song with that title. Tasty morsels of psychedelic guitars searing and tearing through the classic riffs. And the fine treats don't stop there. I have no idea what a "Gannymead" is but the song cooks along like a freight train, chugging off into southern blues rock nirvana. "Lady" slows things down enough for a classic-styled power ballad just long enough for "Stone Frog" lives up to the bands claim that they play voodoo reefer rock.”

“Deadweight have a real arena rock, big guitar sound with classic rock, blues and just a touch of the old Motown R&B feel to it. With a wide range of influences from several different genres they’ve managed to take the best of it all and mix it together for an incredible sound that’s new but familiar. It’s just good rock n’ roll that’s meant to be listened to at excessive decibels! When I first heard of the band I certainly wasn’t expecting to hear this rock anthem, big ass, thick type sound. The name Deadweight brought to mind something entirely different. Being brand new I didn’t know anything about them or what they sounded like. The band recorded the 3 song sampler that was featured on the show just days prior. I didn’t get to hear it until they came in and we did the interview, I was blown away! It was a privilege to introduce them to the Lawton, Ft. Sill local music scene.”
