Demonwolf. Fiend. The Lords of Lindenwood.

“Legend tells of a legendary warrior whose kung fu skills were the stuff of legend...He was so deadly, in fact, that his enemies would go blind from over-exposure to pure awesomeness…”

~Po, Kung Fu Panda~

This is a tale much like the mighty Po, but altogether, so very different. The Count was introduced to music at a very young age, but didn't start playing until age 11. Raised in New Mexico on country and dust, he quickly found his element in the dark metal chords of Metallica, Megadeth, Cradle of Filth and several other Knights in Darkened Armor! In the early 90's, he found himself enraptured by the sounds of Nine Inch Nails, Ministry and, eventually, Marilyn Manson. Needless to say, he was NOT a hick in a very hick town. He found himself too busy with eyeliner and combat boots to even worry about potash and cattle. His first band was a Metallica cover band. They learned three songs, performed once and never did anything again. Relocating to Indiana, The Count started his career playing for mulitple cover bands, and then moved on to originals, including Sunny Taylor, Rosemary Gates, Creep, Soulfyre, Striaghtupdown, The Migraines, Grave Robber, Leper and, most recently; Demonwolf, FIEND and his own monsters of mayhem, The Lords of Lindenwood. Having already been endorsed with Evans Drumheads, Promark sticks and Puresound wires, he realized with all the modern cymbal "techniques" and lack of quality, it was time to find that missing piece of his arsenal. He found perfection in Soultone cymbals! He’s never been happier. The Extreme Series is amazing. With its raw-to-lathed appearance and its loudness, it's everything he needs in a crash, and the hi-hats are ridiculous! His brand new 22" Vampyre Venom Ride has an amazingly piercing bell and perfect tone with three layers of destructive power. His new 21" MA crash ride has basically replaced all other crashes in his arsenal. Recently he's added a 20" Extreme series China and 15" extreme hi hats to his lil' onslaught of symphonic metal masterpieces; another great choice for brilliance in brashness and contour. "It comes down to this; you wanna be the best, you gotta play the best and Soultone are the best; period, all other arguments are INVALID!" SOULTONE: PLAY THEM. SELL EVERYTHING ELSE AND BE HAPPY FOR THE REST OF YOUR MUSICAL CAREER. THE COUNT GAURANTEES IT! Remember, what we do in life, echoes in eternity…ECHO WITH THE RESILIANT SOUND OF SOULTONE!!! BEAST!!!
