|Drew Gage grew up in Pleasanton, a suburb located in the East Bay area. He was raised in a very musical household, where his Mom was always listening to Blues music, and performing onstage. He picked up guitar at age 12, and was immediately attracted to the playing styles of guitar players such as Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Randy Rhoads, Zakk Wylde, Gary Holt, Rick Hunolt, Dimebag Darrell, Gary Moore, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. He has been in various Thrash Metal bands the past 5 years, and feels he has found a great fit with his fellow musicians in Hatriot. Sharing lead guitar duties with Kosta Varvatakis, the two blend their styles into one, trading off frantic solos. Excited for what is to come, they plan on unleashing a sonic assault of brutality upon every pair of ears they find… be warned; Hatriot is not for the weak.
