THE DEADSTATION is an American progressive metal band based in Boston, Massachusetts. They present their work to listeners as “episodes” from a fictional dystopian TV channel called “The Deadstation”, with each song title representing a different scene from that episode.
Drawing influences from such acts as Alice In Chains, Dream Theater, Megadeth, Porcupine Tree, and Radiohead, THE DEADSTATION is a finely-tuned mixture of heart-stopping vocals, progressive riffing/drumming, epic orchestral elements, and pitch-black ambience.
In February 2012, they released their first single “Limitless, Or So It Seems”, which was mixed and mastered by Peter Rutcho of Damage Productions, who is best known for producing three albums for Revocation (Relapse Records). In May 2012, they released an EP called “Episode 01: Like Peering Into The Deepest Ocean Abyss”, which was mastered by Jens Bogren (Symphony X, Devin Townsend, James Labrie, Opeth), and mixed by Peter Rutcho.
Reactions to “Episode 01″ have been positive across the board, which includes being called “one of the best this year” by Heavy Blog is Heavy, and “fucking killer” by Gun Shy Assassin. Metal Injection has also called the band “masters of progressive metal.” As of October 2013, the EP has been downloaded over 3,500 times by a rapidly growing fan base around the globe.
The band is currently writing for their next release “Episode 02″.
