DREADNAUGHT, the Beckley, West Virginia based American metal band are making available their new single “S.O.S.”, as well as their re-released debut cd “Incarnate” for worldwide review and airplay.
In 2014, Dreadnaught reunited around guitarist / vocalist Timmy Canaday, drummer C.W. Smith and bassist Ron Blankenship who recorded a cd in memory of their fallen brothers, Dale Lively and Tom Smallwood.
“Incarnate“ released that year, featured a total of 7 songs with one song specially dedicated to Dale and Tom. The cd was recorded over a 6 six month period at the band’s studio In Cool Ridge, West Virginia under the watchful eye of producer / engineer Mark Matteo. The cd was released by the independent US label Gamma Records.
After finishing the cd, the band decided to start writing and recording again. By now, it was decided that Timmy would focus exclusively on playing guitar and the band set out on a far and wide search for a powerhouse vocalist to front the band. Enter the mighty Eric Boggs.
CD Track Listing:
2. Silent Steel
5. Never Gonna Die
6. Pure Hunger

The dreadnaught was the predominant type of battleship in the early 20th century.The first of the kind, the Royal Navy’s Dreadnaught, had such an impact when launched in 1906 that similar battleships built after her were referred to as “dreadnaughts,” and earlier battleships became known as pre-dreadnaughts. Her design had two revolutionary features: an “all-big-gun” armament scheme, with an unprecedented number of heavy-calibre guns, and steam turbine propulsion. As dreadnaughts became a crucial symbol of national power, the arrival of these new warships renewed the naval arms race between the United Kingdom and Germany. Dreadnaught races sprang up around the world, including in South America. Successive designs increased rapidly in size and made use of improvements in armament, armor, and propulsion throughout the dreadnaught era.
