Biography

Six Years Dead began in 2001 with only two members Rodney and Jason. The two brothers started out writing original songs and lyrics, eventually performing these songs with the music pre-recorded and a theatrical flare. All the while looking for talented musicians to amp up the live performance. Soon after playing OKC's Bricktown Live in 2004 Ernold, Travis, Kevin, Sean and Shetira all became a part of the 6.Y.D. family. Now writing and performing an extensive catalogue of original new and older songs the band has created a serious sound all thier own. The Six Years Dead sound has become synonymous with heavy music in Oklahoma after having built a name independently and with the support of local and national radio.

SIX YEARS DEAD and itÂ’s members are honored to have performed with the likes of MASTODON, ACID BATH, MUSHROOMHEAD, TYPE O NEGATIVE, PUNGENT STENCH, M.O.D., DRYLINE, LIFE OF AGONY, GOAT WHORE, DOPE, JACKNIFE, CRISIS and many more national, and international acts. Not to mention the many more to come. Six Years Dead has also played with many killer respected local acts...Days Of Grey, Severence, Skullpl8, Rikets, Horse Called War and Hinder to name a few. 6.Y.D. has been honored to share the stage with many talented musicians and are grateful to be a part of todays heavy music scene!

Six Years Dead's style definitely cannot be catagorized under any one style of rock. The band has many songs in which you can hear influences of heavy rock, funk, metal, jazz and even a bit of classical. The tight knit group of childhood friends, musical talent, and drive become a perfect mix for success.
