Matt Snell – A Chicago native, Matt hit LA and played in just about every Metal band that needed a bassist. From experimental Metallers Anubis Rising to Deadsett to Flatline just to name a few. This constant gigging earned him the nickname “bass whore”….. but really…. you all know him as the original Bassist for Five Finger Death Punch… nuff said
Mike Gerdts – Indianapolis is the stomping ground for Mike, but he didn’t stop there. Mike Is a self taught vocalist and guitarist whose passion for music has pushed him through the rough times. Mikes’ vocal work with his former band NO ONE ZERO has proven a unique quality, that is seldom “seen in the scene”. Mike became the mouthpiece for My Acumen after beating out 100’s of competitors, and with his solid work ethic, the sky’s the limit.
Tim Hassemer – This New Mexico native, “the man who brings the thunder” is best known as the Founder and drummer of the metal band FLATLINE. A master woodworker by day, thrashmaster by night. It’s difficult to calm this guy down behind a drum kit, so we don’t bother trying. Tim continues to push the metal to his pedals and will not compromise his integrity for what everyone else is doing. A rare find these days!
Dave Delacruz – This New Orleans, LA native who now calls “Sin City” NV his home is widely known for his time in Los Angeles’ SILENT CIVILIAN. Dave’s driving rhythms, catchy melodies and dedication make him the perfect and final piece of the MYACUMEN puzzle. It is our belief that during this journey, he will NOT be Silent.
Cris Portugal – Our very own Tijuana Baja California native adds his south of the border flavor in a truly unique way. Watching Cris play is nothing short of a clinic. Cris’ guitar work adds a perfectly complex texture to the already deep My Acumen sound. His performances on this first record will be sending guitar players back to the woodshed to practice!
