..is a solo musician/ makeup artist- visual artist... who is an artist of my own right. whatever music I cover is something that expresses my inner being. Both the emotional and the ravenous creed of my inner self.
Founder and former of the Philippine goth metal doom band called "Oremuz" (formerly known as "Mutus Liber" project) with Lord Rams and Ron Lanuza in 2004. http://www.myspace.com/oremuzletuspray
Has given the band's principle core concept as a "Gothic Brutality" grunt act.
As vocalist with range of melodic 3 octaves, deep baritone, Death scream/ vocal fry /false chord growls.
As a child, have vocal experience in performing in Church, with vocal training. Has expiremented with guitar and violin.
Earlier years, jamming with metal band In school events with my band "Mic2RipDeth" in which was formed with my deceased best friend drummer Michael Calma (his name is our band's name as to when we formed our band, Michael had cancer already) , we cover Megadeth, Faith No More and other metal /rock/goth bands we like. What amazes me is his skill as a drummer , even though his legs were amputated due to his condition or not, he managed to play. He inspired me.
I had theatrical activities but was not really given the full chance to lead due to student favoritism, almost opened for "Aegis" Filipino pop rock band, earliest known experience with playing guitar for Benny Hinn/Peter Gasparik in Doha due to parental reasons which I am not very proud of, as it doesn't seem to meet my musical standards and beliefs.
As solo artist, performed in small events and guest vocals in bands. What made me express my kind of music was using MySpace, Multiply, and Vampirefreaks as my live platform. Also experienced being a dj with new wave /goth spin tracks at play. With all this, I had fare share with goth modelings, my last project was for Goth Subkulture poster. In fact, Suicide Girls contacted me in MySpace way back 2003.
