Just as with the art of magic, Aedryan has also devoted the largest part of his life to studying music theory, audio production and developing his own unique musical style, while honing his songwriting abilities. Aedryan began playing guitar at the age of 12 and has played in many different bands and acoustic duo projects between 1989 and the present. A few of Aedryan’s past bands include “E.C. Sleaze”, “Wild Child” and “Betrayal”. Aedryan is deeply influenced by many metal bands and early classical music composers alike. Some of his biggest heavy metal influences include King Diamond and Mercyful Fate, Cradle Of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, Arch Enemy, Carcass, Nevermore, Children Of Bodom, Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne. Classical influences include Niccolo Paganini, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and of course, Johann Sebastian Bach.
Presently, Aedryan enjoys working solo in his free time away from magic, where he writes, records and produces all of his own music for his project entitled, “Wickedess”, in which he writes and records all of his own guitar, bass, keyboard and drum tracks in his personal home recording studio. He has worked with various female metal vocalists and hopes to either find a permanent vocalist for Wickedess or possibly become his own “front man”, which would change the sound of Wickedess immensely. Aedryan has also worked with various other female vocalists in his acoustic duo act and continues to struggle in his search for a dedicated permanent partner in that project as well.
Below are a few demo songs, which Aedryan has produced in more recent times. All instrument sections were written, performed and recorded by Aedryan. Main vocal sections were recorded by various female vocalists, who were previously involved in Aedryan’s projects.
