I met my band mates through school. I met Brandon in the 4th grade, where we spent a lot of time playing commando in the bushes with water guns. Two years later we met Mike in jr. high where mike and I spent a lot of time skateboarding. Dirk came around in high school, I met him through Mike when we started to jam together (me, Mike and Dirk). We had all just began playing our instruments and were not very good, but did have a great time.
We would cover bands like Metallica and Megadeth. I personally never was into those metal bands, but Mike and Dirk were, so I would just learned them for fun. We actually played a couple of parties as a trio then a couple of months later, Brandon joined us, and at that time, we began writing our own music. We played all through high school and continued after we graduated.
We hooked up with Kilmore in the beginning of 98 and our band was complete. Now it is almost 2000 and we are still writing and playing together...
