Sex Metal was conceived by Zackie Spesh in the summer of 2013, at first as a joke with bassist of Umphrey's McGee, Ryan Stasik. The concept was to fuse elements of heavy metal, improg, and touches of electronica. Later that week, Zackie sat in on guitar with his heroes during their show at Full Moon Resort in the heart of the Catskill Mountains.
Life went on for Zackie with both good times and bad times, but the once joke developed into something more. A purpose has come to Sex Metal and now it's time for the doors to open.
So Spesh invites you, musicians of Bandmix and beyond, to come jam at his rehearsal space. Doesn't matter what your instrument is, what genre you play, who your influences are, etc. The only requirements are that you come to jam and have a good time.
While we at Sex Metal are looking to fill slots for a core line-up which includes, a drummer, bassist, and keyboardist, we also aim to build a network of musicians willing to support each other in whatever way possible.

First and foremost, Umphrey's McGee, obviously.
To name of few of our childhood favorites, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Cream, Queen, King Crimson, Rush, Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Eagles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson.
Billy Joel, Elton John, Guns N Roses, Tool, we'll end the list with Ludwig Van Beethoven. We could go ad infinitum, Daft Punk, Tiesto, but high school was a weird time and we're not too proud of our tastes back then. Nowadays, there's lot of Doom, Death, and Black Metal being blasted late in the evening from Zackie's computer, but hey life is heavy AF and it's part of his job to listen to the genre's he plays in as he currently is playing in an orchestral melodic black metal band. He loves that sh*t though.
Members Of Band
All alone for the moment. Looking for members to join the project.
We are not comfortable with the idea of listing off a long list of what may or may not be pricey gear. Bassist's need to bring their own amp. Keyboardists are advised to bring their preferred gear and/or synthesizer.
Zackie always helps with load in and load out.
Drummers, please bring a sticks, your preferred symbols and a double bass pedal.

The Devil's Eyes
The Devil's EyesCombining elements of prog, doom, funk, and soundtrack music. An experiment in using movie audio sampling. This track features a mix of Donald Pleasance's monologue as Dr. Samuel Loomis in Halloween. A truly creepy and psychedelic soundscape experience awaits you.

Legend of the Hydra
Legend of the HydraLegend of the Hydra is the story of a manmade monster that was created to protect humankind's most precious ports from the treacherous oceans and waters. The Hydra turned against man, but at that moments, stars aligned and a wizard was born, a foretold messiah. The boy grew and so too his powers. Lore has it that he could move and crack the earth. He faced the mighty Hydra in battle and not a moment too late, for the Hydra was about to destroy the planet in order to obliterate man. The Great Wizard could not kill it, but was able to encase it at the center of the earth. Where it still lies today, burning for an eternity.
Behold the Behemoth
Behold the BehemothFull Demo Version_Rough Behold the Behemoth is the culmination of the music I make today. UPDATES Synth solo in the intro ver much ala Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee Arrangement adjustments to Part I Part II: Features a sludgy transition into a doomy jam that builds to a psychedelic guitar solo that is sure to melt faces. Thank you for listening! Check out my other cuts and let me know what you think. Comment and follow! \mm/
HorrifiedA work in progress. Dropped my laptop at the beginning of the weekend and had to Frankenstein a new demo studio. Working with an old build of everything here. Guitars are first takes and transitions need to be composed... Lyrics are written and vox are being composed.... More to come soon so stay tuned! \m/
