Born in Minneapolis, MN, Eric was immersed in music since the age of 15. A classically trained guitarist and vocalist, he began his career primarily on seven string guitars. Eric quickly developed a love for exotic tunings and scales, infusing progressive death metal with non-standard time signatures. He co-founded Minneapolis-based bands Rawhyde (Southern Rock/Metal/Hardcore), and The Devouring (Progressive Deathcore/Djent). Eric joined Thira (Steampunk Industrial Groove Metal) in late 2012, and completed two consecutive national tours with them. In late 2013, he left Thira to pursue other interests.
He has toured the nation, and shared the stage with numerous national acts such as Periphery, Animals As Leaders, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, Rings of Saturn, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, Aeon, The Ocean, Revocation, August Burns Red, After The Burial, Reflections, Your Memorial, War Of Ages, For Today, A Plea For Purging, With Blood Comes Cleansing, This Or The Apocalypse, and many others. Eric is currently in the process of recording his self-titled debut. Look for it soon!
