About AFTERTAYST

ROHNERT PARK, CA

AFTERTAYST BEGAN IN 2001 BY LEE BAXTER AND DAN KABANUCK. ARMED WITH AN ALESIS SR16 DRUM MACHINE, A SHARED LOVE OF METAL AND DISAPPOINTED BY THE MUSIC OF THE DAY, THE TWO BEGAN WRITING THE KIND OF MUSIC THAT THEY WANTED TO HEAR, HEAVY, MELODIC, RIFF ORIENTED METAL! BY 2003 THE TWO HAD A VICIOUS ARSENAL OF SONGS AND MUSIC. NOW, IT WAS TIME TO FIND THE REST OF THE BAND. GABE RAMOS (BASS) HEARD A DEMO OF SONGS AND COULDN'T WAIT TO AUDITION. PROVING HE WAS UP TO THE TASK, HE WAS GIVEN A CHANCE AND MADE THE CUT. A COUPLE MONTHS PASSED, BUT, A DRUMMER WAS NOWHERE IN SIGHT. THEN, OUT OF NOWHERE, ANSWERING AN AD ON CRAIGS LIST, AROSE, PAUL DAVIS. WITH THE CHOPS OF A DEATH METAL DRUMMER AND THE CREATIVITY OF A SONG WRITTER, PAUL WAS HIRED BEFORE HE HAD A CHANCE TO THINK ABOUT IT. NOW, THE VOX WAS ALL THAT WAS LEFT. BEING THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENT, THE VOICE WAS NOTHING TO RUSH INTO. MANY AUDITIONED, A FEW WERE GIVEN CHANCES, BUT, NON FIT THE BILL. IN JUNE OF 2006, MIG, A WIREY EXPLOSION OF A FRONTMAN, MADE HIMSELF KNOWN AND BECAME THE 5TH AND FINAL MEMBER. WITH A FULL LINE UP AND MANY HOURS OF REHEARSALS, IT WAS TIME TO TAKE AFTERTAYST TO THE NEXT LEVEL. PLAYING SHOWS LOCALLY AND OUT OF TOWN AT PLACES LIKE THE WHISKEY A GO GO, AND THE KEYCLUB IN HOLLYWOOD, AFTERTAYST HAS OPENED FOR BANDS THE LIKES OF MASTERY, DIECAST,LAAZ ROCKIT, DORO PESCH, AND MOST RECENTLY TESTAMENT. WITH THE PASSION, DESIRE AND DRIVE UNRIVALED BY MOST, THE GROUP IS READY TO TEAR UP ANY VENUE WITH THE GUTS (AND INSURANCE) TO ALLOW THE ONSLAUGHT OF A BAND SET FOR WORLD DOMINATION. BE FOREWARNED! AFTERTAYST IS NOT FOR THE WEAK OF HEART
