As a vocalist his major influences are Brent Smith from Shinedown. He plays an ESP M-107 and a Line 6 Spider II.
Percussion – Kyle Shortt: Kyle joined the music scene 4 years ago playing in a death metal band for a couple years. He was then introduced to Grindcore/deathmetal aka Deathgrind. He started playing music like that for a year and a half with his former band, Harlot Masquerade, but on their spring break '08 tour they broke up after the first day on tour. Now Kyle has just been serching around to play music. One day at a shinedown show, he saw Andy Wilson, and was offered the spot as the drummer. This is a new genre for him considering he is used to playing grindcore and death metal. His main influences are: Suicide Silence, As Blood Runs Black, Through The Eyes Of The Dead, Chiodos, Protest The Hero, AFI, Blink-182, Blessed By a Broken Heart, and Arsonists Get All The Girls. That is just a small amount of bands. Kyle is going to try and incorperate his Grindcore/Deathmetal technical beats with the band.
