We're very pleased to announce an old friend, a talented musician, an eager beaver and one of the sexiest people around John Gahlert (ex-Fall Of Serenity) for the Deadlock bass position! In the end we let our hearts speak and we chose John for his patience, his energy, his visions and his grace! We could not have done it better and we're sure to reinvent and advance our musical creation to the next level.

From now on we are back with full effect and we are looking forward to see you girls and boys at one of our next shows around this planet! Please welcome John with high passion!"

Deadlock - Extend Contract With Lifeforce Records

Deadlock have just renewed their contract with Lifeforce Records. After their successful albums "Earth.Revolt" (2005), "Wolves" (2007) and the newest (yet untitled) release to hit the stores in November 2008, their will be three more albums which will combine the typical Deadlock essences, a high standard mixture of extreme technical and melodic metal, the dual vocals by the band's singers Joe and Sabine and a good dose of gothic darkness.

This is what the bands drummer, Tobias Graf, has to say to the renewal of their contract with Lifeforce: "It´s a big pleasure for us to continue our collaboration with Lifeforce. They´re doing an excellent job for Deadlock, so it´s been an pretty easy decision to extend our existing deal with them. Furthermore we´re the only good band on their label roster and we couldn´t take the responsibility to leave them alone with all those other poorly acts."

Lifeforce Records CEO Stefan Luedicke: "I'm very happy that we have secured three more albums with Deadlock, one of the most promising bands around and not to forget one of my personal favorites on Lifeforce, even the band members have the worst haircuts ever I'm really looking for the great things to come in the future and we at Lifeforce will be part of. You can be sure, Deadlock is a band you'll hear and see from a lot in the coming months and years!

At the moment, Deadlock supports the peta2-campaign The Canadiens with a new Song called "Kill Kill Kill" to increase attention to the shameless annual seal hunting in Canada.
So if you want to find out more about the campaign and don´t want to miss listen to this new masterpiece combining extreme music with strong ethical statements you should check the following link.
