Alfred began his musical career at age 10 when his parents bought him his first electric guitar. Like the rest of the band, Alfred was heavily influenced by the NWOBHM bands like Maiden, Priest, Scorpions, etc. Within time he discovered heavier styles such as Motorhead and Metallica. After high school and various bands and frustrated in finding singers for the bands he was in, Alfred began his vocalist quest and has been doing it ever since. A military career and family has seen Alfred travel the world but as fate would have it, he stands strong with Syrus!
Dan discovered the love of his life around the age of 14 when a 1960's Gibson Ripper was given to him by a friend who watched him continuously play air guitar. A short time later he was playing covers with his friends; Dio, Iron Maiden, etc. Bass Man Dan was born!
As time passed influences from such legends as Cliff Burton, Steve Harris, Geezer Butler to name a few help expand and shape Dan's style. It is this style that pushes Dan forward to create! Having contributed to many bands on the local and regional scene, Dan now lays the foundation for Syrus!
Syrus has seen it's fair share talented musicians come thru the fold. All have brought their own unique style and talents. Here we pay tribute to all of them, whether for a brief stint or many years of metal service.
