"The new young and unsung heroes of American Melodic Death will stun you with their monolithic debut EP, proving just how intimately familiar they already are with their chosen style. A pummeling mix of early Samael and Carcass with memorable riffery and grittier-than-gravel vocal vehemence, Deimos draw blood with all four tracks and deliver the killing blow with "Automaton", an ideal dose of Deimos that you can hear on their site: www.deimos-metal.com. These Texas hooligans already scare me, and they're just getting started…" - Brian Davis - Explicitly Intense Magazine


“When I made my way to the main stage, I was looking forward to Deimos, the first metal band of the evening. I first heard their demo from an old roommate of mine and was immediately impressed with their attempt and success to play heavy metal, but with focus and class. Throughout their performance, there was enough distortion to rip your head off. But Deimos intricately and cleanly played through each song with an emphasis on feel and song structure. Singer/guitarist Steve Fernandez had a distinctive snarl to his voice that reminded me a lot of Kreator main man Mille Petrozza.”

Bio

Deimos hails from the north-banks of the Rivercity: San Antonio, Texas, not known for anything else except the Alamo. The band was formed in early 2000 by founding members Steve Fernandez (guitar/vox) and Derrick Rutledge (bass/backup-vox), both looking to take a stab at their own creations in the style of some of their influences and at the same time explore different aspects of the music. With the entrances of Justin Leonard (drums) in late 2003 and Matt Mayer (lead guitar) in early 2004, the true Deimos was formed.

Over the course of the next few months the four wrote many songs and then began to choose which ones they wanted on their EP, set to record in Jan �05. With the release of their four-song EP, Silence of Ages�(Feb. �05), word spread very quickly of the band�s distinctive sound focusing in on elements of classic heavy metal and melody with lyrics based in science and oblivion. The reaction of the EP spread across certain parts of the US and a few copies managed to end up in Canada. The name Deimos and the album cover of decaying circuitry dug its image into the minds of many. �Automaton�, a track off the EP, was chosen to be featured on a statewide compilation CD entitled, The Real Texas Edge, Vol. III, released by the Edge Magazine.

Deimos is a young band prepared and determined to take their music to the next step. With stronger distribution of Silence of Ages�and the release of their first full length album due out in June, Deimos plans to aggressively strengthen its support in the US and other areas of the globe. The band has a relentless desire to write and create more music and an even larger desire to perform their works in front of a fierce, screaming crowd. Silence of Ages� is just the beginning for the young band hoping to dispense its musical energy across the globe.
