About Predator


Nestor Aguirre | Predator Singer

Jason Rushing, Lead vocals

Born in Mobile, Alabama and raised by family of musicians, Jason Rushing always found refuge in music.But unlike most in his “neck of the woods”, he found his peace in Metal and Hard Rock. Singing in numerous cover bands with his brother for years he subsequently broke off to join his first original Progressive Metal band “Wicked Waltz” where he wrote his first material to ever be recorded professionally. Jason was discovered by Damien while performing in an Iron Maiden tribute band.

   

Damien Lee Thorr

Damien Lee Thorr, 1st guitar

Damien Lee Thorr is a truly unique guitarist extraordinaire, who has been an acclaimed, gifted expert at the craft for many years. He has divided his time between being a mentor to many young musicians, including Paolo Gregoletto, bassist from TRIVIUM, as well as being a center stage performer himself. He has won numerous prestigious awards naming him best guitarist and is also quite proficient on other instruments including the Lute. Damien has also made time to record solo albums and play guitar for many theatrical productions including Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar. Born of 100% Iberian blood, you can sense his Flamenco & Latin roots mysteriously in Predator’s dark & aggressive sound. His creativity knows no bounds: Apart from being a political activist, he is also a great artist, composer, author (horror erotica novel "The Vampire Journals", under the pen name Nigel Zachary Coutrwright) and is also a highly skilled luthier who builds some of the group‘s fine hand-crafted guitars.

Joe Kuznik, 2nd guitar

Joe Kuznik was born in England from Polish/Spanish parents. He is a citizen of Spain and lives in Madrid. He has been a guitar player all his life, performing in every pub and street corner of the city with many metal bands. He studied the guitar extensively. Although the distance from Madrid to Fort Lauderdale is a vast one, Joe was the best fit for Predator and with Damien, they form the most impressive twin guitar team in the metal industry.

   

Mike Bugarin Predators Bass Player

Mike Heremana, bass

Mike Heremana is Predator's Bass player extraordinaire. His unique aggressive musical style provides the deep and hard driving sound for this powerful metal unit. Armed with great musicianship, Mike is one of the best bass players in the world of metal, capable of ultra fast lines that do not linger in the background, as most bass players. His “lead” bass style is a perfect match to compliment the styles of Thorr and Kuznik, providing Predator with a string team that isn’t rivaled in these days with disintegrating musical standards. He also has a great voice and provides amazing vocal harmonies to compliment Jason‘s voice. Mike also practices Martial Arts and likes to perform Polenysian fire dances.

Mike Spyke, drums

Mike Spyke is a Florida native with a background in progressive and speed metal. His years of playing and recording experience make him the perfect man to sit at the drum throne behind Predator. Mike is also a talented audio engineer and producer. 

Together, these five Latin rockers comprise PREDATOR. Stalking as one, this pack has become a force in Heavy Metal that simply cannot be denied. Their amazing talent, song writing abilities and overall cool positive vibe will leave the listener feeling enthusiastic and thinking more about their own place in this world. Predator is best known for unleashing fast and loud heavy metal with above average musical skills and very strong lyrics which focus on social commentary. They have been compared to many of heavy metal greats such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Queensryche. You will never hear songs about evil, drugs, fantasy, self-loathing or depression from these boys. These amazing and powerful songs are positive mirrors of strength in the world and feelings of self reliance and self worth abound! This is... REALITY METAL... This is... PREDATOR!
