This album by System of a Down has greatly influenced my playing and how i choose to listen to my music. They are one of my absolute favorite metal bands and I look to them for any musical inspiration i might have when I'm stuck.
Theory of a Deadman is also one of my influences. The tone of their music and the ideas that they talk of resonate with me.
Hendrix is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, so of course he would be one of my major influences given that I have been playing guitar for over half of my life.
Five Finger Death Punch is my absolute favorite band in the world and I would not be the same person I am today without ever have been afforded the opportunity to listen to them. FFDP is my greatest influence and I hope to be able to have the same type of musical pull that they have on me on other people.
