Dead Gorilla


Robert was born and raised in Germany. He is a musician with passion for mainly metal. At the age of 16 he picked up his first guitar, a cheap acoustic one for around 40 Euros. He has never taken any guitar lesson and learned everything by himself with the help of tabulature. Guitar Pro has changed his life and is still his most faithful companion he works with. With the purchase of his first electric guitar he got more and more into covering metal songs. He recognized that playing metal was his favorite genre to play and is mainly influenced by Metallica, Pantera, Trivium and Lamb of God. 2011 he started creating his own music and recorded everything what buzzed in his head, so that nearly none of his ideas fell into oblivion. With that he learned more about the DAW's and all the opportunities which come with them. During that time he produced many tracks but only showed them to his friends. The missing vocals didn't convince him to publish anything. His tracks he produces are designed for vocals. Then, 5 years later in 2016, he finally decided to give it a try an uploaded them to YouTube. His idea was to find people who like to add vocals to his tracks. Within two months he found the first person. Music for him is the pefect balance to his enginneering studies. Since then he loves what he does and his dream is to live off that one day.
