Ken Lloyd ( May 13, 1984) from Camden, New Jersey, started playing drums in early grade school. After playing a couple years his parents bought him his first drum kit, at which time it was simply a hobby. When he moved back to North Carolina in 1998 he didn't have many friends in the beginning and spent many hours playing. then he heard the song that changed his life forever, "One" by Metallica. Hearing Lars playing the pounding double bass made him long to be able to do the same.
When he entered highschool Ken made friends in bands of their own, and when one of the groups lost their drummer before a show he offered up his abilities. With only three weeks to learn the set, he was unsure of what he was doing, but went for it anyways. He was hooked. He played with the band for the next few years, but they disbanded after highschool. He then joined a thrashband, where he
played many years and improved his skill, learning he could play at an
impressive speed. After the thrashband broke up he joined a death
metal band, which he found was great for his skills and talents, along
with a great outlet for his ADHD.
Nowadays Ken is part of three bands- Screaming By Me, Valence,
and Harrowvex. He loves playing and makes it a regular part of his
schedule, with practices most nights of the week and shows on the
weekends. His influences include Mike Portnoy, Terry Bozzio, Tony
Rowyster Jr. and Gene Krupa.
