"Hekate Williams - Deadbeat Blackout - 2023"

This is stage presence.
This is experience.
This is performance.
This is a rockstar. - Brenda Tipton - Metal Kross Productions


The underground always ends up hiding great names, which for various reasons end up not receiving all the attention they deserve worldwide. This is the case of the great North American band Deadbeat Blackout, which emerged in 2017 and presents a first-rate Hard/Heavy, which is nothing short of the big names in the style.

With 2 EP's and 1 album already released, some songs stand out within the band's repertoire. This is the case of the great “Tear It Down” and “Nemesis”, which feature powerful vocals, guitars that deliver not only great riffs, but also outstanding solos and a rhythmic part that manages to impart weight and variety to the songs. - Roadie Metal

Checked out live version of "Tear It Down" today. Great intensity! Reminded me of Judas Priest! - Psychological Piece


The American Heavy/Hard Metal Band Deadbeat Blackout has just presented to the world a new work of art in Tear It Down, the song has a musicality to leave everyone speechless. With a very well composed harmony, it brings straight guitar riffs that refer to the traditional Heavy Metal, but the charm is all of the voice that is very well performed.

It really is a great sound of the style, for those who enjoy Metal it's really worth checking out this band - Ricardo Rodrigues
