This week Dyssidia played with the legendary Opeth to a sold out crowd at The Gov! It was an absolute honour to meet and share the stage with our idols, and was certainly a night we will never forget.
Next week I am heading into Against the Grain Studio to record the drums for Dyssidia's second EP which is 4 tracks spanning about 35 minutes of melodic progressive metal. This will be released in late July with a massive show featuring a couple of big name interstate bands to be announced soon.
Our next show is with Voyager (WA) and Klone (France) at Jive on the 21st of July. You can order cheaper tickets here.
Here is a live track from the Opeth show, which is from the 1st EP "Quiet Waters". Stay tuned for video footage of new material that we played on the night.
As well as teaching drum lessons to my regular students which is always rewarding, I have also been doing drum lessons with drummers from various Adelaide metal bands helping them with the heavier areas of their playing such as blast beats and double kicks. This has been very rewarding to see the improvement in my fellow metal band drummers and I implore all drummers who wish to improve in certain areas of their playing to contact me for a cheap drum lesson no matter what age, skill level and style you play.
I have been teaching drums for about 7 years now and I am always happy to take on new students. Cheers!
