This is the current project I am working on.. It started from my drummer (Kelly Leutschaft) and I writing stuff together in 2010 and has turned into what is now called "Apocalypse Prospect". It's now my solo project but I still get help from Kelly with drum beats and patterns.
Prior to this project I have been in a few other bands.. "Numbskull", "Sin", "Tattletale" none of which really made it very far at all. This is my attempt at a different approach I guess.
Currently not playing live and don't really plan to.. but if there was enough demand I might put something together in the future.
Devin Townsend is a huge influence, that guy is a genius... aside from him, pretty much any band that is fist pumping and devil horns heavy.. oh and video game music is a huge influence too. Phillipe Vachey is amazing!
My main guitar right now is a ESP LTD EC-1000 Deluxe (lefty)
I use a Mesa triple rectifier 150 watt half-stack with minimal pedals, usually just my Boss NS-2 noise suppressor and sometimes a compressor.
I have been using Guitar Rig 4 lately for recording because it's way more practical for recording.
I use Superior Drummer 2 and some expansion packs for it for the drums for right now.
With this album I am going to try to make 12 very diverse songs while at the same time having a signature sound that's very distinguishable. I'm not a fan of those boring (every song sounds the same) albums that bands are throwing out lately as fast as they can.
I have tonnes of material right now, more than a full albums worth.
I'll make a post whenever a new song finished. HORNS WAY UP!
