"Playing live at the Kronk Fest will be two Michigan heavy-metal sluggers: DEADHOUSE rocking out of Detroit and CAVALCADE from Lansing. As an extra-special bonus, there will be an exclusive sneak preview of the long-awaited rockumentary 'Down – Diary of a Mad Band', which is scheduled for release in 2010.

DEADHOUSE recently announced the addition of guitarist Rob Singleton (TREBLE BLEED, PEDL) to the group's ranks. The band's current lineup is rounded out by vocalist Wicked Mick of H.M.R fame, bassist Jeff "J.D" Decker and drummer Jeff Shankin (UNIVERSAL STOMP, TWIZTED).
Formed in 2002 by Wicked Mick and Shankin, DEADHOUSE's can best be described as "groove-driven psycho metal," according to a press release. "DEADHOUSE pulls in a variety of influences, including bands from NWOBHM, Bay Area thrash, and '90s power groove. The band has gone through a few lineup changes over the years, but the signature sound and powerfully heavy stage show have remained the same."
