About Us:

    "We are the pawns of progress....the sacrificial batteries "

DEAD RECKONING is a four piece American Metal band based out of Columbus, GA. Formed in late 2012 by guitarist, and at the time active duty soldier, Mike "K-OS" Spriggs, the band has forged itself over time from four vastly different people into one solid unit, never wavering in its mission to be the sledgehammer smashing through all the walls of fuckery.


Though originally formed by three veterans DEAD RECKONING has undergone several lineup changes through the years.  Guitarist Mike "K-OS" Spriggs has become well-known for his tornado riffs and face melting solos. The recent return of vocalist Bleghboii Taylor Monroe with his monstrous vocals and incredible high energy stage performance. Drummer Ryan Lake sets the pace with his hard pounding technical attack. And Brian "Brayne "Silverstein glues it all together on bass with a thunderous groove you can feel in your chest. It just becomes one big wall of "fuck yeah!!"


"Rise of the Fallen " released in 2018 as the bands first full length studio album accompanied by a music video for the title track. The band and crew did five US tours in support reaching all but 10 of the lower 48 states. They have made a ton of friends and seen many amazing bands but the time has come to return to the studio.


"mediApocalypse", "PAWNS" and "Gallows" are the first three singles to be released from the upcoming 2nd full length album "As It All Burns" produced by Ahrue Luster (former Machine Head/ Ill Nino guitarist) will be available on all streaming platforms 


Over the last few years DEAD RECKONING has had the honor to share the stage with some of the most bad ass and brutal bands in metal. Metallica, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Gojira, Rob Zombie, Asking Alexandria, Exodus, Exhorder, Mudvayne, All That Remains, Whitechapel, Motionless in White, The Genitorturers, Fuel, Orgy, Motograter, Texas Hippie Coalition ,The Convalescence and SPITE just to name a few. And so far and growing daily they have played fests like Welcome to Rockville, Blue Ridge Rock festival and multiple Slaughter Que fests in their home state. It's been one a hell of a road but they're not even close to done!! See you all soon!!!
