Deadlock (1997-present) is a Heavy Metal band from Germany.
ate brought this young band together in 1997, when Tobias, Sebastian, Johannes and Mike met. End of 1998 Hans-Georg took over the bass duties from Mike and Deadlock`s first stable line-up was completed. After releasing their self titled 7" all on their own the guys from 'Winter Recordings' realized the potential of this talented band and made them an offer they could not refuse. From this day on both parties grew friends more and more and in early 2000 Deadlock`s 7-Song MCD I`ll Wake You When Spring Awakes saw the light of day.
Since then lots of things have changed... Two new faces joined, namely Thomas replacing Hans-Geor g on Bass and Tom on additional Guitar. Sabine was featured on several tracks of The Arrival playing the Keyboards and performing additional clean vocals. Deadlock developed their brutal and blistering sound to a higher level, playing now tight and skilled metal, with beautiful melodies, a harsh screaming voice and female background vocals.
Lyricwise they offer you a wide range of topics, like showing their "Vegan Straight Edge Attitude" in Songs like Menschenhand, focusing their view of our greed ridden society in Spring Is Awoken or in The more Money They Get, or just opening their hearts in poetic and epics like Love I ThinkI Have Never Felt It Before or Lebe Wohl.
In 2002 they found new friends in the band Six Reasons To Kill and decided to do a split release on 'Winter Recordings'. Deadlock once again developed their skill and tightness to a higher level and added to their epic music orchestral arrangements. Also the typical Twin-Guitar melodies, the blackish keyboard-parts and the female vocals are forced to the next level. In July 2003 the Split-CD were finally released. In late 2004 DL found a new home base with 'Lifeforce Records', who in turn release their newest opus on 28 of June 2005 titled Earth.Revolt, a concept album telling a fictional story about t he final and merciless battle of the earth and its creatures against the exploitation of mankind.
