They provide the right length, weight and precision I need to switch between faster tempos and dynamic grooves to feel out ghost notes. Fishsticks have really hit the nail on the head with the length and size.
Growing up, I always been around music and have played my whole life. Started going to local hardcore/metal shows in 2008 and by early 2010 was playing regularly with “Vows of a Massacre”. After VOAM’s disbanded, I Exalt began and writing, playing, recording and touring for the following 5 years. In recent times I’ve been focused on Splatterpuss, Mother Morgue, Madura Green and as much touring/session work as I can get.
