New music is on the way, so in the meantime you can download the debut album Through Shadow Into Light for free from www.thespiralsequencemusic.com - link in bio!

Check out this review: “It’s impressive that one man has created an album that could be considered the soundtrack to the apocalypse, but when you add to it an astute social commentary, anthems for the working class and some mysticism as well you have an album the ‘thinking man’ can sink his teeth into … Killer guitar riffs, awesome drum work and thought provoking song writing. This could be any metal fan’s favourite ‘unknown’ band. For me, at least, it’s gotten under my skin and insists upon repeated listens and it’s been a while since any album has had that effect on me.” - Dave Metalife, Rock Support
Hit the link and download for free, and let me know what YOU think when you’ve had a listen! \m/

THE SPIRAL SEQUENCE - MUSICAL INFLUENCES

Still my biggest musical influence, this is of course Steve Harris from Iron Maiden. One of the greatest songwriters and bassists to ever walk the earth! Listening to Maiden and seeing Steve Harris play made me want to pick up the bass and form a band. I also loved the fact he was also a lyricist and songwriter, it was very inspiring to me - and still is!
I never get tired of Iron Maiden, I still listen to them to this day and mix it up, with all of their albums on rotation, old and new. I recently picked up a Fender Precision bass and it will feature heavily on the new songs I’m working on for The Spiral Sequence right now.
Who is your biggest musical influence and/or favourite musician, and why?

TRANSCENDENCY

Cast down to mortal flesh
To ride the wheel again
Through many lives remain
We make the same mistakes again
When will we finally realise our destiny
When will humanity achieve Transcendency?

So when I’m not writing music I work on illustration, Photoshop and design stuff, including all artwork for The Spiral Sequence - here’s an Alien Covenant inspired poster design I did recently in Painter and Photoshop.
Who’s seen the movie? Love it? Hate it? I liked it but was a little disappointed with the film to be honest, I was expecting much more and feel like it could have been a lot better, though I’ll probably watch it again when it comes out on blu ray. Check out more of my artwork @midnight_sun_art_and_design - dm for work enquiries, band artwork is always fun.
