Artist Bio

Influences:   Metal, in all of its glorious forms, the more extreme the better. Also bluegrass, not that you'd be able to tell.

\m/ >..< \m/

1987: I bought my first guitar and the Cherry Lane tab book for Metallica's Master of Puppets. That's how I taught myself how to play...

2006: I got into the home recording game and wrote an EP based on The Endless from The Sandman comics. Lord help us all, but I actually gave Neil Gaiman a copy at a con later that year. He was very polite about it. Bless him. For it was truly awful.

2008: I found FAWM. Hurrah! 😃

2011: Put out a first metal album under the name Abomnium. It had a spoken word bit from @dasbinky and @devin, and lyrics from @debs and @negasi.
Stylistically it's all over the place, but I still love it.

2013: The second Abomnium album, Coffinships, came out on UKEM Records.

2014: I went to Skyhammer Studio in the wilds of north-west England to record the 3rd Abomnium album, Solace for the Condemned, under the watchful gaze of the masterful producer of extreme metal, Chris Fielding

2017: Back to Skyhammer for the last (for now) Abomnium record, A Hollow Path. Finally I knew what Abomnium's music sounded like. Unfortunately it went out at a time when the label was really struggling, so got pretty much zero promo and so tanked. Oh well. I think it's aces 😉

2018: @gordon and I teamed up under the name Bridge11 and released A Blue Dot - 76 minutes of whacked-out space rock. I learned sooooo much about mixing and mastering doing something not-metal where every note counts!

2021: I've just got meself a 12-string Gretsch electric. Because 12 strings have to be more metal than just 6 strings, right?

    Great to see you back for the fun again! I can wait to hear more awesomeness from you! 😀 Have a great FAWM!

    Also... That 12 string looks so so tasty! (I'm not jealous... really I'm not... ok, I confess. )
