Perry Dillard: Guitars/Backing Vocals
Perry grew up in a home where his mother was a classical pianist and was introduced to music at an early age. He studied piano off and on for about 3 years as a young child. In junior high he started playing the trumpet, and in high school played baritone and picked up guitar. His early influences were Kiss, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and lots of 80s hair metal: Stryper, Ratt, Dokken, Skid Row, GNR, Motley Crue, Poison, Metallica, Barren Cross, Bloodgood, Saint, Messiah Prophet, Megadeth and Pantera just to name a few. His modern influences are Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Chevelle, Corrosion of Conformity, Godsmack, 5FDP and Disturbed. Perry’s sound has developed over the years to be a refined blend of Judas Priest and Metallica, combining classic metal crunch with an edge of modern metal assualt.
