HOW I GOT STARTED
Iron Maiden lip sync in High School. Met Greg. Bought drums. Started rockin’! (See Greg’s description-it’s the same story : ) )
OTHER BANDS I HAVE BEEN A PART OF
SCARFIST-- A polarized sort of sound and style of heavy metal: short & simple versus not.
DYOMINACH—Progressive Metal power trio with expansive stlyistic influences.
ROADKILL-- Speed Metal interspersed with moments of bluesy, heavy melody. Three whole line-ups worth!
VYPER—One serious cover band with some originals.
SOLDIER BLACK—Where it all began. Black lipstick and all!
SUMMING IT ALL UP
I got into music for the music itself. I tend to write and play music that I enjoy, and that means something to me. Fortunately, I am working with people who feel the same way and together we can push ourselves and our chops with each successive song while still appealing to the refined metal palette. I sincerely hope you enjoy our music, and our recordings to come. Stay tuned for the full length album later this year!
