Archfiend Aug 20,2014
Brian LaFave: Rhythm Guitars and Vocals It all started for me in 1986 when I first heard the band Metallica Master Of Puppets this is when I decided I was going to play guitar and sing. I wasnít much into learning covers more into writing my own music. But unfortunately by the time I was old enough to play out in bars the metal scene went under ground and hip hop and grunge ruled the world. The music that I write is influence by band like Metallica, Disturbed, Slayer, and Five Finger Death Punch. The idea I have with the music that I wrote is to try to bring back the Old School Metal music from the 80s. The band name came from a friend back in the 80s.Me and my friend were jamming one day and realize that our band needs a name so my friend went to his grandfathers house to look in his german dictionary for cool band names he went through the book and found this word it read archfiend it means the devil we thought that was cool. So we decided to call the band Archfiend. The members now are Tom Davis Drums, Jason Keshick Bass, Tony Manitowabi Lead Guitar, And me Brian LaFave Rhythm Guitar and Vocals. This is the band of Archfiend
Tom Davis: this is the drummer for Archfiend.
Tom Davis: I am a drummer Iíve been playing drums for about 20 years .My influences are Living and dead. Like most drummers my biggest influences are extraordinary players. My living idol is Neil Peart, my dead idol is John Bonham. I pattern my playing after the thrash metal icons of my youth like Slayer, Testament, overkill, and Megadeath. I Try to put a little of all my musical influences in the music I play. The biggest thing for me is to play Archfiendís Music in front of Thousands of people someday.
