I was raised in an abysmal little town called Huntington, West Virginia, on the east coast of the United States. Ever since I can remember, it has been a poverty stricken, disease ridden nightmare.. we have both the highest obesity and over dose rates in the country.. All of our jobs have been taken away.. Everyone receives some type of welfare.. and I fucking love it. Through listening and creating metal music I've found a way to channel and project my deepest inner hatred in a way that is both productive and healthy. What better a place to do that in than an American Hell itself? I've always been drawn to heavy music.. I was raised listening to the industrial metal of the 90's and the thrash metal of the 80's. Once middleschool hit, I had started discovering my own taste for darker, heavier metal. Bands like Death, Vader, Entombed, Benediction, and even heavier things such as one of my personal favorite albums to this date, "None So Vile" by Cryptopsy. My favorite bands and influences include PANTERA, Abominable Putridity, Cattle Decapitation, Septic Flesh, OPETH, DYING FETUS, ACRANIA, Soreption, Misery Index, Facebreaker, Cannibal Corpse, The Faceless, Type O Negative, SCAR SYMMETRY, All That Remains (The Fall of Ideals), DECAPITATED, Carcass, Death, TEXTURES, Lamb of God, Ingested, Katalepsy, Arsis, Bloodbath, Beyond Creation, Bloodshot Dawn, Fallujah, Spawn of Possession, FEAR FACTORY, GOJIRA, Testament, Ulcerate, Slayer, The Misfits, Between the Buried and Me (Colors), and a handful of deathcore bands like: After the Burial, Whitechapel (first three albums ONLY), Veil of Maya, Born of Osiris, RINGS OF SATURN, Infant Annihilator, The Algorithm, and The Acacia Strain. Currently, I am a 20 year old college student with the dream of creating one of the best death metal albums ever made. I am not a genre nazi, I enjoy all variations of all metal and all the ways they can blend. Any of you guys or girls out there that feel like collaborating on some music, definitely let me know. I play lead/rhythm guitar, bass, and do vocal work. I will MAKE time in my schedule for the cause of the music. Anyways, I look forward to discussing some badass metal on this site with all of you fellow prolific social metal pariahs. Hello everyone!
