Lead Guitar.


Blackmore is an alternative metal band that formed in the later months of 2012 in Los Angeles. After playing with several bands with many lineup changes, guitarists Shaunt Sulahian and Jack Heldt began writing material with drummer Vinny Mezian. The group then joined forces with Full Force Rising bass player David Dadoyan. The 4 members clicked immediately, creating an unstoppable array of music ranging from psychedelic rock to groove metal. After creating a sufficient amount of new material, they began their search for a front-man that would be able to take them to the next level. Several auditions later, the group found former Diablo Royale vocalist Adrian Barrios who perfectly encompassed and evolved the groups sound to greater heights. Blackmore plans to begin playing extensively in 2013, ultimately taking the world by storm with a new breed of heavy metal.
