Matt McVey

Apollyon Revolt

Matt was born in 1981 and has been drumming since 1984. Music enveloped him from the beginning and drums captured his attention and imagination. Matt’s Dad Nick and Step-Dad Brian were phenomenal guitarists. Brian brought home Matt’s first kit from ‘Bach to Rock’ where Brian taught piano and guitar. Brian would jam with him on a regular basis giving him the understanding of the dynamics in a band setting. A handful of drummers held Matt’s interest and shaped his playing in the beginning: John Bonham, Neil Peart, Bill Ward and Ian Paice. The late 80’s and early 90’s is when Matt became intrigued with the ferocity, complexity & physical execution that it took to play Thrash and Death Metal. Matt has been in bands from the age of 12 and is constantly expanding his boundaries and loves playing and listening to almost every genre. Matt is currently in a brand new band ‘Apollyon Revolt’ that just released their debut EP.
