I'm 34, based in Denver, and I've been playing for 20 years or so now. My old band was Seris (you can find out album Rises on Spotify still) but we used 6-strings there. My new band (tentatively called Lightswarm) will be all 7 string stuff. I have been playing and writing on a Schecter ATX-7 for a few years but I just recently bought a Schecter KM MK-III Artist, which is pretty fantastic. Favorite bands are Tesseract, Skyharbor, Monuments, Periphery... All the djent, basically.
