Biography of Band

July 2002 was whenit all began. Guitarist Shannon Sharp & bassist Justin Hoffman of the prominent Seattle band, Suffergauge, plus drummer Clint Clark of the legendary Seattle-based band, Heir Apparent, were called upon to record a track for an upcoming metal compilation CD. The challenge was to take musicians, who had never met, stick them in the studio, & have them write & record a track in four hours. During the session, it was evident that there was an extraordinary amount of chemistry there, unlike anything they had experienced before. Shannon & Justin’s astonishing blend of hyper-technical riffs & superb techniques melded seamlessly with Clint’s punishing over-the-top barrage of polyrhythmic flair. Four hours later, a three-minute track of sheer sonic brutality was on tape. This day would change their lives forever. After leaving the studio, all three were amazed by this experience & wanted to begin working together immediately. Formed completely by accident, the guys had found the musical soulmates they had been searching for. BYAXIS was born. A month later, all three left their respective bands to pursue BYAXIS full time.

The goal of BYAXIS was to assemble a group of extremely seasoned and versatile musicians in order to create some of the most groundbreaking & diverse metal the world has ever heard. The band only had one rule: There are NO rules! Although firmly rooted in all forms of metal, BYAXIS also draws extensively from other genres such as jazz, fusion, & progressive rock/metal. Basically, it was about finding people who could play pretty much anything & at the same time, incorporate those various influences to produce chaotic, yet beautifully brutal, music. 20 vocalist auditions later, Enter Dan Goodrich. Dan blew everyone away with his dynamic combo of brutal & melodic vocal stylings, and his clockwork delivery of syncopated phrasings.

With their debut show scheduled for September 6th & an upcoming CD, BYAXIS is set to unleash their unique style of progessive metal onto the masses.

In January 2004 it was announce that the band would be taking a hiatus as their bass player Justin Hoffman admitted himself into an Alcohol Treatment program after having struggled with alcoholism.
