Heavily equipped with a cutting edge sound, up and coming Heavy Metal/Thrash band Dead Sleep packs a punch with this debut CD. Signed to Washington, DC based label Potomac Records, singer/song writer Desi Pena has written and produced a full length recording entitled "Falling to Pieces", which was released on April 24, 2012.
No stranger to the music world, Desi brings 20+ year's experience to the table. This completely self-taught musician came out the gate guns blazing. Originally from New York, Desi was one of the original founders of the Long Island-based band, Element. The group performed together for seven years. Taking the knowledge he had acquired, he decided to start on a new project, and hence Dead Sleep was born.
Busting through the metal mold, this album demonstrates his potential not only vocally but as a producer/engineer. His combination of catchy and melodic lines mixed with clean chugging guitar, gut wrenching screams and hard hitting speed beats leaves you white knuckled and can only be described as a heart attack from beginning to end. If there is one aspect of the album that stands out it is his remarkable level of pure and superior guitar skills displayed on tracks such as "The Chant", "Someday", and "I.D.K".
Being a fan of so many different bands throughout the years ranging from rock to death metal, Dead Sleep has incorporated all of that into this album. When asked, lead singer Desi Pena states his personal influences are the likes of Marty Friedman, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde and John Petrucci, some of the best guitar players the world has to offer.
Dead Sleep has spent the last few months working diligently with Kirk Chaney - (Kirkland Studios) Digital Mastering/Engineer/Potomac Records to master each song to perfection on the "Falling to Pieces" album. Both Desi Pena and Kirk Chaney will be making their first television guest appearance on the Front Row Show to discuss the album, signing to Potomac Records and the release date. Desi is scheduled to start his U.S & Canadian tour this year, bringing together a slew of extremely talented musicians.
