My name is Dane. I have been playing guitar since 2001 and I started playing bass shortly thereafter in 2002. I have been in and out of multiple small time bands since I started playing and have a few recordings of my work.
I graduated from college with a B.S. in Chemistry and am currently working as an R&D Chemist for a coating company. The only thing I love more than music is chemistry and science.
My musical tastes are rather narrow. I know what I like and that is what I listen to. That doesn't mean I don't have musical appreciation for other genres. I studied music all through out high school and took multiple theory classes. That helped me to look at the music for what it instead of dismissing it based on how it sounds.
My favorite genres are Melodic Death Metal and Metalcore. Aside from those two, I mainly listen to Death Metal, Deathcore, Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Symphonic Black/Death Metal, Symphonic Metal, Post-Hardcore, and Folk Metal. I occasionally listen to some punk, alternative rock, and blues rock bands.
