ABOUT

Hi, I'm a 20 year old guitarist who's been playing since he was around 15, after that I've been hooked and am constantly practicing. I'm extremely influenced by challenge and intrigue in songs but also have been a fan of things like nu metal, hard-rock and punk. I'm also a huge sucker for key changes and odd time signatures thus my influences very from progressive metal to more jazzy, indie and pop influences. Despite my favourite genre being metal I am quite the opposite of a Satanist and would prefer to avoid any band who promotes it, I'm not apposed to any religion nor would I go against yours if it's different from mine but things like Black Metal I very much avoid.
