Who We Are

Born from the ashes of the northwest metal band Systemik, Hands of Deliverance is a metal band that combines multiple influences from progressive metal to straight up old school metal. Influences range from Machine Head, Lamb of God, Metallica, Dream Theater, and Iron Maiden. The band's insightful lyrics, blazing lead guitar work, and sweeping dynamics makes for a roller coaster ride of a listening experience.

As a kid in the 80's, I was exposed to a lot of great music due to my older siblings. From Van Halen and Motley Crue to Yes and Sting, if it was on MTV at the time I was pretty much into it.  It wasn't until the mid 90's that I picked up my first pair of sticks and starting learning to play the drums. Some friends were in a band in high school and introduced me to a drum kit. Maybe a year later I got my first kit and haven't looked back since.
