Xander Demos is an innovative rock and metal guitarist who hails from Pittsburgh, PA. Drawing on diverse influences that include pop and ambient, as well as the metal riffery that is his bread and butter, Xander has created a uniquely modern guitar rock sound. His versatility as a musician enables Xander to push the envelope in terms of metal guitar in a manner that few players have managed, since the emergence of Joe Satriani in the late 1980s.
Citing influences that include Steve Vai, Neal Schon, and Vinnie Moore, Xander has a well-rounded playing style that can range from extremely melodic to just plain extreme.
