i played in a band in the 80's, but quit for quite a while. Then I saw a band at Church playing heavier music and sounded amazing. I thought, I can do that.
3. What is different about being a musician than you imagined?
The big difference about being a musician is all the politics. Other bands, venues, radio stations, you have to do a lot of networking and talking to people

I use Mesa boogie amps, cause I want that heavy metallica sound. I play Jackson and ESP guitars. I like the feel of them and how they sound.

Parkway Drive, being a Christian most people think you only listen to other Christian music. I listen to all bands

a little Metallica, Lamb of God, Skillet and Parkway Drive

Friendly Enemy, I like the riff and the way Steven sings the chorus. Came together good, IMHO.....
14.Why should people take the time to listen to your band over the thousands of other bands?
people should give us a listen because we are more heavy riffs with a beat you can get into, not really fast, but head bobbing metal. Old school, if you will !! And we sing about different things in life and how to make it better, hopefully

I listen to youtube mixes to hear all the new music and what's really hitting now

17.If you could choose a cover song your band mates would hate what would it be?
Sponge Bob Square pants theme song .....lol

The record is very important. You can have a great show, but more people will hear you, than will actually see you. (for now)

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
