Gus Drax was born in Larissa Greece. He started taking guitar lessons at 14 and very quickly managed to play at a very high technical level. At 19 he became a member of the UK Progressive Thrash Metal band Biomechanical when their leader John K asked him to join the band as the lead guitarist.
With Biomechanical he made his first tours and played in some of the biggest festival in Europe like Metalcamp, the Rockin ‘Field, the Caos Emergente etc.
Shortly afterwards he joined the Greek Melodic Metal band called Black Fate with whom they just released their new album entitled “Between Visions And Lies” by Swedish label Ulterium Records earning great reviews from magazines and webzines around the world.
In 2010 he released his first personal album titled “In Search Of Perfection” which won brilliant reviews from magazines and webzines worldwide for the compositions and the very high technical level of guitar playing.
And after a brief stay in the German Thrashers “Paradox”, Gus announced the formation of his own band named Sunburst who have played in very big festivals of Europe alongside with some big bands like Symphony X, Saxon, Fates Warning, Amorphis, Evergrey , Freak Kitchen and others.
Their debut album is now finished and ready to be released soon.
On of the biggest moments of Gus’s career so far is the release of his Signature Model with Siggi Braun.
Gus is also endorsed by Reunion Blues Gig Bags, Visual Sound Pedals and Positive Grid.
In September 2015 Gus got his first Signature guitar which has been built accordingly to his demands: A non-compromising high-end Custom built racing-machine, made of best components available.
Gus comment: “This guitar in fact is the best i have ever played, it`s just awesome!”
