An established heavy metal band from Cleveland, OH. From European festivals to small concert clubs, Eternal Legacy's goal is to give the same highly energized show to everyone who attends their performances. Eternal Legacy's metal does not fit under any lame sub genre and is not just for one trendy group of people. It is for everyone who eats, sleeps, and shits heavy metal. Eternal Legacy does not set out to give concert recitals or show off any kind of nonsense to the masses, but gives metalheads what they want, heavy music, good catchy tunes, extremely energetic performances and something that let's a metalhead know what they are a part of. Eternal Legacy does not think of their listeners as fans, but friends. If this statement pertains to you, then you are what Eternal Legacy is all about. Join us!

How Music Slaughtered my Life: Growing up I was always fascinated by many different styles of music. Throughout my early years of school, I studied music theory and played many different instruments, along with introducing myself to the recording world. I started playing guitar at the age of 12. After a few years, I began playing in the band Mercinary. It wasn't long before I found my true style of music, listening to bands like Maiden, Metal Church, Sabbath, Anthrax, Pantera, Iced Earth & Metallica which changed my style and influenced me vocally & musically. Set out to better my knowledge in music, I also took vocal lessons. From there I began writing songs for Eternal Legacy. I dedicate my entire life to music!
